A good first dust collector

A good first dust collector

05-06-2013 01:21 PM by Ottacat | 7 comments »

When starting a shop life is full of compromises. We’d all like to install big cyclones with top of the line 6” mains and dedicated drops to each of our machines. However when starting out money is tight and we don’t yet have all the machines in our shop nor really a firm idea of their proper locations. Thus a portable collector that gets moved around is often the way we start collecting dust. I was initially hoping to find a portable cyclone but they were all either unde...

Excellent option for portable dust collection

Excellent option for portable dust collection

12-24-2013 07:52 PM by lumberjoe | 7 comments »

Like many, I don’t have the space or power requirements for a large dust collector. I need something small that doesn’t draw a lot of power (I only have 30 amps available). This little unit fits the bill. I have my tools aranged so everything that needs a proper 4” dust collector is in close proximity, and I have a quick connect on the hose. The good: This unit is quiet compared to a shop vac and has plenty of power when connected to one tool at a time. It has no troub...

Dust Deputy / Oneida Air Systems Inc.

Dust Deputy / Oneida Air Systems Inc.

The kit comes with the plastic cyclone, two buckets, lid, hardware and hoses. The cone is made of thick polypropylene plastic with the hose connections tapered so that hoses easily fit. The dust deputy has far exceeded my expectations from when I first read about it. The $99.00 investment was well worth it. I have a central vacuum system hooked up to most of my stationary tools and this system on its roll around cart is very versatile, hooking it up to other tools and for general shop cl...

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

Bought this filter unit at a garage sale,brand new in box for $40. I don’t haveanything to compare it with but I’m amazedat how much dust accumulates on the outerfilter. I’m also running a HF dust collector. The unit has a 5 mic. outer and 1 mic. innerfilters,3 speeds, & remote control. For $40 anythingthat keeps dust out of my lungs is worthbuying. It’s a perfect size for my smallbasement shop with low ceilings. Menards is selling them for $160& I believ...

Delta Dust Collector Model 50-760

Delta Dust Collector Model 50-760

I also have this dust collector and have been very pleased with it. The one micron top bag does an excellent job of filtering. My garage shop is small and I simply move the dust collector around or switch the hose from one machine to another. At this point I don’t intend to add any piping other than to perhaps rig something for my router table. Prior to purchasing the Delta unit, I used an old Sears shop vacuum. The Delta unit is much quieter and does a dramatically better job. ...

Dust Deputy with bigger bucket

Dust Deputy with bigger bucket

12-20-2010 04:03 AM by westerndf | 6 comments »

So I have had the dust deputy for about 2 years and was using the 5 gallon buckets that came with the kit. I got tired of emptying the buckets during planning so I searched and found the perfect fit. It was a 32 gallon container from Lowes and its the perfect match. I have attached the dust deputy to the bucket and was concerned that the suction would be impacted negatively but was positively surprised that it worked just as good if not better that before. I say better because I don’...

Air Filter

I finally took the plunge and bought an air filter unit for my shop. It was a purchase that I didn’t put on a very high priority. My thinking was “It really isn’t really a tool”, after all you can’t cut, shape, grind, drill or sand with it. After all I have a dust collector what more do I need. I always figured the fine dust that was always collecting on everything was okay, after this is a woodworking shop. Then I read a few articles on the long term health haza...

Decent Dust Collection Really Cheap

Decent Dust Collection Really Cheap

01-23-2011 12:13 AM by patcollins | 6 comments »

My 1970’s Craftsman Contractors saw has zero dust collection and much of it falls straight down so I thought about using some sort of bag for it. I happened on this canvas “Table Saw Dust Bag” at Harbor Freight and it was only $5.99 so I thought I would give it a whirl. The material is pretty cheap and the snaps aren’t anywhere close to being put on straight or even, but that’s alright. The bag came with the male end of the snaps attached to sheet metal scre...

Ridgid 16 gallon Shop Vacuum

Ridgid 16 gallon Shop Vacuum

I just purchased this Ridgid 16 gallon Wet/Dry Vac. The model is a WD 1851 and I got it at Home Depot for $160. I’m upgrading (I hope) from an older ShopVac I had that’s at death’s door. This machine seems very nice so far. Nice power cord length and cord seems to stay cool when running. The switch is right up front and very easy to operate. The included hose and accessories aren’t bad either. The motor is rated for 12 amps but you won’t find that on the packagin...
