A Lot of Issues

A Lot of Issues

10-08-2018 02:56 PM by WoodyS4S | 21 comments »

We recently acquired a new Oneida 5HP Dust Gorilla Pro with Smart Boost. After watching an episode of “The Wood Whisperer” on youtube and doing some research we decided to order one. BTW no one is paying us to write this review, we have no endorsements. Everything arrived on a crate and it was mostly well packaged, the large HEPA filter had a little damage to one of the gaskets but nothing major. The first issue were the instructions, or lack thereof. The only instructions...

Sequential Cyclone, can't be matched

Sequential Cyclone, can't be matched

10-02-2018 02:09 AM by steffen707 | 9 comments »

I read the dewalt planer would overpower normal shop vacs and had enough power to blow the chips into the cyclone. While this was kinda true, it struggled with the shopvac hooked up to the top port of the cyclone and not turned on. So i just hooked a hose up to the top port, it worked a lot better, but when the 30 gallon can I had fills up, it of course happens in the middle of a pass. So half a pass worth of fluff gets blown all over the shop or driveway….... SOLUTION? I dai...

Works well but is made of cheap junk that breaks easily

Works well but is made of cheap junk that breaks easily

Routers kick up a dust storrn that is both annoying and unhealthy. So when I saw a video for Oneida’s new router dust shroud I was excited and immediately bought one. It worked well but the plastic it is made of is so flimsy that the shroud popped out with use. Later, on the first day of use, part of the shroud cracked when the router was set on its side (gently). The sad part is that when it was working, the shroud was very effective. Another problem is that the recess for the...

Oneida conversion kit filter cartridge

Oneida conversion kit filter cartridge

10-30-2016 06:03 PM by mikeswoodshop | 4 comments »

I have an older Oneida DC (1.5 hp) with internal cartridge .. inside the separator. This model is no longeroffered and I needed more power as my shop grew. Oneida offered (for a price ! ) a conversion kit to allowthe cartridge to be located outside the separator and advertised it to “increase flow”. Luckily when originally ordered, I opted for the muffler thus I already had the outlet fitting tangent to the fan housing. This allowed for an easy installation of the ” conv...

Oneida Dust Deputy Cyclone

Oneida Dust Deputy Cyclone

The SDD replaces a “Frankenvac” HF through a Thein separator to a plastic barrel, using Rockler quick-connects to each tool. I replaced the HF impeller with the Rikon, and what a difference! I am blessed to be able to just vent outside, so fine filtration is not a concern. The assembled collection corner is amazingly quiet, and has quite a lot ( don’t have the ability to measure airflow) of suction – even on the far end where the SawStop lives. I read of so...

Oneida Super Dust Gorilla - 5 HP

Oneida Super Dust Gorilla - 5 HP

Several months ago, I purchased a new dust collector. Before, I had a Jet 1.5 HP dust collector with a cartridge filter and vortex cone. It did an OK job and was piped into my shop with 4” PVC. My measurements of the flow at the dust collector were 670 CFM at the 6” port and only 450 CFM at the 4” port. The maximum static pressure was 10.25” Inside my shop, the flow was greatly reduced. I decided that I needed something bigger to collect more of the dust and so looked at a number of t...

Took a couple weeks to get dust collector. Not bad. Had some hesitation with housing being plastic. Then again car intake manifolds have been plastic for a long time. It is very light. Putting it together took some patience. There are many fasteners. It would have been good to segregate them to make finding them easier. Didn’t expect to be drilling holes or applying a peel and stick gaskets. Not a big deal. Could/should have been done by manufacturer. I was surprised to find ...

The only WW machine I've regretted to date

The only WW machine I've regretted to date

-1 star for poor fit and finish-1 star for constant sensor failure-1 star for poor customer service I’m usually very happy with all the major woodworking machines I’ve bought, with the exception of my dust collector. It has been the biggest regretted/mistake I’ve made to date. The pictures speak more then words. Before anyone says anything, Yes I did assemble the unit correctly and spent a lot of time doing so making sure it was correct. All connections either have silico...

Super Dust Deputy

Super Dust Deputy

I modified my DC system for the ‘nth time, this time replacing my Woodcraft garbage can cyclone lid for the Super Dust Deputy. The trash can lid did fine but I was still getting a lot of dust and chips into the bag and filter. I really hate changing the bag and cleaning out the filter. It is a dirty messy job that kind of defeats the purpose when dust is going everywhere in the shop just to get the bag off, and to take the filter off to get it outside to clean. So I bit the cost and modif...
