Grizzly G0583Z 1HP Canister Dust Collector

07-23-2010 02:16 AM by Steven H | 8 comments »

Due to Budget and electricity, I am able to purchase 1 HP dust collector.I choose the canister one. It does a good job sucking dust from my Grizzly G055P bandsaw, but I don’t recommend it connecting to table saw, jointer, etc… The collector come with the elbow, try avoid using it. And for the first time visit the local Rockler store I got some Clear Flexible Dust Collection Hose It was on sale . (Note its says online sale only, its not true) Connected to the the col...

Both the tool (and its price) are extraordinary.

With my new shop in the house (as well as a bit of asthma in both me and the offspring) I’ve needed to invest a lot more money and time into dust collection. I installed a JDS 2hp unit and plumbed piping—even with a reducer which provided benchtop extraction—but I quickly found that I find the noise of the large unit “worth it” only when running the big tools. For the small tools—and particularly the sander—I had been using a combination of a sma...

Super Dust Deputy cfm loss

Super Dust Deputy cfm loss

01-29-2014 11:40 PM by secretgarden | 8 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 ”...

Blast gate problems

Blast gate problems

03-10-2013 08:05 PM by bear2 | 8 comments »

I recently purchased two 2 ½ inch blast gates from Rockler so that I could split my tablesaw from my floor vacuum. After installation I found that with one gate opened and one gate closed my vacuuming power was reduced by more than half. The gates leaked significantly in either the closed or opened position and rendered the system useless.For a small system the small gates are of little value, for a larger more powerful system larger gates may work.

Was nice till it sucked up to much concrete dust

Was nice till it sucked up to much concrete dust

The first picture is just after it died a small fiery death. The second pic is from lowes website, the canister is not really that tall is a more squat. Purchased this in the summer of 2008 and it lasted till September of 2013. I purchased a Ridgid WD1851 to replace it, after it died. I used it for house renovations and some dust collection. It had seen a good amount of drywall dust and concrete dust (which is what lead to its demise). The bushing (not bearing) wore and the motor shaf...

Excellent option for portable dust collection

Excellent option for portable dust collection

12-24-2013 07:52 PM by lumberjoe | 8 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.

04-21-2014 04:20 PM by OakHill | 8 comments »

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...

04-25-2008 07:13 PM by gator9t9 | 7 comments »

Now mind you I have only had this machine for 1 month .and my shop is small, no planer to fill the bags ..but i love it so far …At 1.5 HP the power is terrific. The noise level rated in the book is 87db and actually it seems less when i run it …I did opt for the Shop Fox remote as it seems when ever I want to turn on my DC system I am on the other side of the room …so with 2 remotes …i attached to a stick and earth magnet on the back i can hang one from my bandsaw and...

I wanted to upgrade my dust collection for a shop vac to the real deal.I always trust delta machinery so I thought this was a good way to go. I headed right over to woodcraft and I saw this shiny beast. I purchased it that day along with the appropriate fittings and hoses. woodcraft has an amazing supply of dust collection accessories I might add!I got home and began to assemble the unit. There is a moderate amount of assembly but the instructions for once are actually helpful. I would sugges...

Air Filter

Air Filter

02-14-2010 06:23 PM by David Murray | 7 comments »

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...
