Dust Deputy for Router Table

Dust Deputy for Router Table

02-07-2010 04:03 AM by dhg | 9 comments »

Routing my test piece for raised panel doors with the Dust Deputy connected to the router cabinet and fence, I was sold on this dust collector. I’d give it more stars if I could. I had gone to Onieda’s website for more information and saw how the dust swirled around, when I saw it on mine I just started laughing thinking this thing is going to work. After routing 9 raised panels and emptying the canister once, total of about 6-7 gallons of sawdustl, it was time to look into the s...

Avoid this one

I thought this may be an answer for benchtop tool dust collection. I often move and sometimes use my bench top planer and jointer outdoors in nice weather on portable carts due to my small shop space. It was rated at 300 CFM. When buying it, I thought taking dust right at the port and not having to travel through long hoses would help. It did not! The suction is poor, you could get a similar result from a shop vac if you reduce down the dust port to the smaller hose size on the vac. Like a sh...

Dust Collector.

Dust Collector.

The only reason this did not get a 5 Star, is the Directions & the casters! I have to get new ones as they’re junk! Why they would not include better casters, I have no idea. For the money and CFM rating along with the 1 Micron Bag being standard, I felt this was the best bang for your buck. At $259.00 plus shipping I thought it would be better than trying to make a Harbor Freight one work. Not there is anything wrong with a HF one for those of my Fellow LJ’s that have them. I have be...

Super Dust Deputy cfm loss

Super Dust Deputy cfm loss

01-29-2014 11:40 PM by secretgarden | 9 comments »

I have a Jet 1200, a 2 hp with a 12 inch impeller attached to a Super Dust Deputy (SDD) sitting on top of a 55 metal drum. I used a Alnor anemometer Model RVA+ to measure the velocity and calculated the cfm at different duct set ups and found no meaningful loss of cfm. Measurements as follows; 1. Measured at the 6 inch intake with a cheap metal 90 degree elbow (after removing the two 4 ” port) measured velocity at 5700 fpm/cfm 1114 2. same as above but with 3 cheap 6 ”...

Quick Review of a Great Little Cyclone!

Quick Review of a Great Little Cyclone!

11-26-2013 10:09 PM by WoodJitsu | 9 comments »

Like every other woodworker, I owned a Habor Freight 2HP dust collector. It served me well in its stock form, but I knew it was leaving lots of fines floating around my small shop and I needed to either upgrade it or buy something new. I looked at all the options with the filters, baffles, etc, but I came to the conclusion that for a few extra bucks (ok, more than a few) I could really upgrade. So I took the plunge and bought the Grizzly cyclone. My concern was the the CFM, I’ll add...

Great so far!

I just purchased one of these units last week. I haven’t mounted it to the ceiling yet, but I have running at table height for now just to check it out. I had been planning to build my own filter like this, but for the price it was hard to pass up. Building a similar unit from scratch would probably cost close to the same plus the time to round up the components and assemble it. I was pleased with how quiet the unit was for the amount of air it was moving. I have only used it duri...

Well another year has come and gone and I must have been a real good boy this year. Look what Santa brought me! It arrived in 2 boxes early November and sat in my garage until I was allowed to open it on Christmas Day. What a torture and a display in self control that was. I was drooling like a rabid dog, wanting to tear into it and hook it up etc. but my wife said I had to wait till Santa arrived. I still can’ figure that one out. Why would Santa drop off my present in early November j...

I hate cleaning up after turning !!

I hate cleaning up after turning !!

06-22-2014 07:51 PM by WildmanJack | 9 comments »

I posted this in the Blog section and don’t know if it is appropriate to post here but if not please delete it. Anyway, I hate sweeping up after doing a lot of turning. So I took a Floor sweep, you know one of those awkward black plastic things you hook to the bottom of you dust collector hose and push it around the floor? Anyway, I put a couple off screws in it and attached it under the lip of my bench at my bench top lathe. Hooked it up to the end of that dust collector hose and man ...

Expensive but Awesome

Expensive but Awesome

09-04-2014 04:23 AM by Manitario | 9 comments »

I hate emptying the bin on my cyclone, but I hate even more when I forget to and fill my filters with dust and chips; basically means an evening wasted cleaning out chips from the filters and then multiple rounds of blowing the fine dust out. I have my cyclone in its own room to keep the noise down so I can’t see the bin…I originally had a Oneida Dust Sentry, it was ok but was inconsistent. After moving to a new shop and filling the filters 3 times in a row, I looked for an altern...

Fastcap RCV remote is a great timesaver

Fastcap RCV remote is a great timesaver

Recently I’ve completed several improvements to dust collection in my small shop. One of the goals was simple, to use the DC at all times. However, I had a floor switch for the DC that I had to walk to and press to turn on DC.Purchased this unit at Rockler for ~$30. Installation was less than 5 minutes. I have it connected to a HF 2hp DC.Have no problems with it and now I carry the remote with me using a clip. Not only do I use the DC more often, it is a timesaver too.
