Shop items made it to the top of the priority list, so I have been working on setting up my cyclone dust collector. Running pipe and electrical took a while.
Here is the ClearVue Cyclone installed. I mounted it on a free standing frame it isolate the vibration from the walls.
I imagine a metal skin pole building might make quite a racket if mounted directly ;).
I have added a McRabbet kit to detect a full bin – which will sound an alarm and can turn off the cyclone before dumping all the sawdust into my filters.
The cyclone is in a “noise room” (yet to be finished) in the NorthEast corner, and ductwork runs down the center of the shop and then splits to the West and East walls.
East Wall has Lathe, Chop Saw, and Floor Sweep
(I went all-out on the hood for the Chop Saw ;-)
West Wall has Table Saw and Jointer/Planer combo.
I went ahead and purchased the SawStop overhead dust collector tubing.
It is pricey, but I just did not have time to cobble something together.
Tool Gloat :D Jet JJP-12hh
We were also able to organize the shop a bit. Cleared the floor, and moved work tables to the center.
Still a mess, but at least I can walk around and see where things are – a lot better than before.
LOML created this solution to organizing (about 1/2) my bowl blank collection. (Wood Gloat) Man, it can take some time and effort to saw up lots of tree stumps.
Once the bookcase shelves are full, we will use the the wire “metro carts”. I was able to pick up another 6 units as scrap from work.
Also picked up eight 5” castors that should be used to build some portable lumber racks.
Gotta have a place to store the finished lumber from the Jointer/Planer
Some real woodworking projects may be in the near future. Outfeed table, jigs, cabinets, spinny stuff…who knows?
