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...

Trend AirShield Pro

Trend AirShield Pro

09-04-2018 04:25 PM by Ben Mclellan | 23 comments »

My first review was so convoluted that I decided to remove it . I have included a couple of photos of my work show that I do have some understanding of what is required and should be provided as far as dust protection is concerned . First off what right does Trend have to call it a PRO? Clearly on page 2 of the instruction manual, the first item under TECHNICAL DATA clearly states QUOTE : Warning The TREND AIRSHIELD PRO is not a RESPIRATOR nor a NIOSH approved device. Using the power v...

Dustopper from Home Depot review

Dustopper from Home Depot review

07-20-2018 02:15 AM by Thisguybeanz | 36 comments »

The biggest thing I love about this dust collector is the size and simplicity of it. All you do is open the box and attach it to any 5 gal bucket and your ready to go. It even comes with a 36” hose with 90 degree elbow. That mean no dealing with sealer bolts drilling cutting and fitting. Its even 10 bucks less that it’s competition. Made a little cart out of scrap wood in about 20 min for it all to fit. Had about a gallon of fine dust from sanding in my shopvac so I emptied as mu...

Updated: Sept '18: Long term review.  Low noise level, but keeping the filter clean is a task.

Update September 2018:After posting this review and thinking it over, I decided to give the filter bags another try. Maybe it was just the variety of stuff I sucked up the first time, but I’m having a better experience with the bags this time around. With the bag, the filter still gets partially clogged, but its a lot slower than I remember. So I’ve been using it with filters the last few months and been pretty happy with the suction. Original Review:I’ve had my Karche...

Dust Cobra Dust Extractor, 17 Gal

Dust Cobra Dust Extractor, 17 Gal

04-25-2018 01:52 AM by JBrow | 2 comments »

Purchase. The 17 gallon Oneida Dust Cobra Dust Extractor along with the optional 2.5” x 25’ CleanShop Vacuum Hose Kit replaced a 1980s Craftsman Shop Vac outfitted with Oneida’s Dust Duty. The Craftsman was showing signs of wear. The Craftsman began making noise when shut off, probably dry bearings. Shop vacs and dust extractors were considered, but the Dust Cobra seemed to offer more. It is designed for a 2-1/2” hose. An Industrial Dust Cobra, which includes a drum dolly...

4" PVC Pipe to 4" Dust Collection Hose

4" PVC Pipe to 4" Dust Collection Hose

04-01-2018 03:11 PM by copythat | 12 comments »

I made my own inexpensive dust collection system using 4” PVC sewer pipe and fittings from Lowe’s. The parts were a fraction of the cost of true dust collection ducting and fittings. The one issue I had was that the diameter of the sewer pipe I used was too narrow to get a nice fit for the flexible drop down dust hose. To solve the problem, I invested in Dust Right transitions and they fit perfectly. Although pricey at $15 each, I thought they were money well spent.

Oneida’s Dust Deputy-The Industrial Steel Version

Oneida’s Dust Deputy-The Industrial Steel Version

02-24-2018 04:11 PM by Commarato53 | 3 comments »

I recently bought the steel version of the dust deputy at $129.00. Two days later Oneida upped the price to 199.00, so I got in just in time. I went with the steel version because often I vacuum up metal swarf from my machine shop tools as well as wood dust. This unit is well built heavy steel with a thick powder coat. I purchased a 14 gallon Eagle brand container with a removable clamped top. The Eagle Container is fantastic extremely heavy HDPE plastic that won’t collapse under pressur...

Noteworthy parts used on my INCRA router table cabinet . . .

Noteworthy parts used on my INCRA router table cabinet . . .

02-19-2018 05:01 AM by copythat | 6 comments »

I used Rockler’s 4” and 2-1/2” Keyed Bridge Hose Clamps on my router table cabinet and they are fantastic. They sit in the spiral of the hose with no awkward positioning over the wire that spirals through the hose. They are a great improvement over standard hose clamps. The 4” can be found here: http://www.rockler.com/4-keyed-bridge-hose-clampsThe 2-1/2” can be found here: http://www.rockler.com/2-1-2-keyed-bridge-hose-clamps I also used Rockler’s...

Tiny, but powerful

Tiny, but powerful

01-09-2018 09:54 PM by MrRon | 8 comments »

I have been looking for a small, inexpensive vacuum cleaner that I can attach to an orbital spindle sander. My DC and 16 gal vacuum is overkill for this task. Searching through catalogs, I came across this. It is 1 HP, 1 gallon capacity. I read reviews on-line and just about all were 4 and 5 star. On the positive side, suction is powerful for it’s diminutive size and it is light. On the negative side, it was loud, the cord and the hose was too short. For less than $40 and free shipping,...
