Well I bought one thinking this is great for only $149. No! its worked for about 8 mins and stoped, motor will hum and then pop my 20 amp braker. looked inside and the fan move`s freely. Called Harbor Fright up and I am going to exchange it , but if any problems ill get my money back. The reviews where good I hope it was only a bad one,”ill see”. Also I bought a new sanding belt 6/48 that I need to return, crack along seem. it`s only a 35 min drive.

Delta 50-760 1 1/2 HP Dust Collector - Not so Pleased

Delta 50-760 1 1/2 HP Dust Collector - Not so Pleased

1963 days ago by CharlieD | 33 comments »

I see several satisified user with good reviews on this product. However it has a flaw that bugs me, and is not acceptable. I bought one new in December. The unit does a very good job with collection, is reasonably quiet and I’m happy with that. But new, right out of the box I found a problem. The rod that holds up the dust filter bag attaches to the top/side of the unit’s housing. The first time I moved the unit the rod hung on an over head beam and even though it wasnR...

Not a very good value

Not a very good value

903 days ago by MoshupTrail | 32 comments »

I picked this up on sale from Rockler recently and put it together this weekend. First off, the box it comes in is very small. In fact, it looks tiny next to my 16 gal Ridgid vac. The Vortex comes in two halves allowing it to nest inside the carton. Clever packing. I was afraid it might leak at the joint, but it proved to be a nice tight fit. Assembly: Not hard at all. The directions are clear and well written, but… There are two connectors for the intake and out...

Meets my needs

Meets my needs

1005 days ago by Vrtigo1 | 30 comments »

I recently purchased an HVLP system and wanted to buy a respirator to go with it to avoid inhaling the atomized overspray. I went with the 3M 7500 because Marc (The Wood Whisperer) did a segment on his podcast about respirators in which he recommended it. I purchased the bare respirator with no filters, then added a set of the P100 filters. The resiprator is quite lightweight and isn’t a nuisance to have on your face, which I think is important because is your safety gear is a hass...

Review and Testing of a G0440 Cyclone Dust Collector

Review and Testing of a G0440 Cyclone Dust Collector

763 days ago by djg | 30 comments »

I will start by saying that I am new to LumberJocks. This is my first post and my first tool review. Like many woodworkers, I have a well equipped shop. Also like many woodworkers, I left dust collection until last. This is an unfortunate. I now realize that dust collection should be one of the first things you should consider as soon as you purchase that first tool. As much as you would like to purchase more tools to do more things, a dust collector should be considered after purchasin...

An EXCELLENT dust collection solution for a small shop

An EXCELLENT dust collection solution for a small shop

452 days ago by StumpyNubs | 30 comments »

We did a whole series of episodes on Blue Collar Woodworking about the importance of fine dust collection. Our solution was a homemade cyclone and six inch duct work. But I am also a realist. I know not everybody has the room or the budget for a system like that. A lot of shops are mobile and the dust collection has to be easy to swap between machines. So I did some testing and I think the Rockler Dust Right system is the best option for a number of reasons. The following three video revie...

Grizzly Strikes Again

Grizzly Strikes Again

543 days ago by tme4tls | 29 comments »

I have been having trouble breathing this winter while the shop has had the doors and windows closed. Normally, two large drum fans keep a good volume of air going in and out which keeps the dust down. Works well for the warmer months but in the colder months when I have the heat on the dust gets to be a bit much. I thought about an air filter but never got around to ordering one. So, I decided to order a Grizzly G9965 air filter for the shop since they claimed it would change the air in a...

Poor customer service at Oneida Air Systems

Poor customer service at Oneida Air Systems

940 days ago by Kirko | 26 comments »

I was initially happy with the product until I noticed the cardboard drum had collapsed, since then my experience with Lisa Barone and customer service for Oneida has been very disappointing. After being told the cardboard drum should not have collapsed they refused to replace it. I purchased the steel replacement drum and lid early in November, I did not receive it, 2 weeks later when I contacted Ms. Barone she told me it will ship out that day and gave me an incorrect tracking number. A mo...

Harbor freight 2hp dust collector....

Harbor freight 2hp dust collector....

1450 days ago by njcraftsman | 25 comments »

A Year ago when I was building my shop, I was shopping around for a dust collector to be the heart of my system. I looked at general, jet, grizzly etc. But then I read several really postive reviews on the HF 2hp model. I had a coupon for 169.00 for it so I figured why not. Let me tell you this thing is at least the equal of all of those other’s! I actually got a chance to examine a jet, and a grizzly….and they are almost identical.(makes you wonder if there not made in the same ...

G0703P - Ignore the naysayers

G0703P - Ignore the naysayers

Hello All, I finally upgraded to a better DC system for my shop. I had previously built a Thien Baffle for my HF DC and that worked pretty well (better than the stock HF DC) but I still had fine dust everywhere. I sold that DC before I moved last year. In setting up my new shop I decided to treat myself so I started the hunt, I knew I wanted a Cyclone from past research and I also knew the size of the duct had a large part to play in its efficiency. I did a good amount of research and n...
