Oneida Dust Deputy Cyclone

Oneida Dust Deputy Cyclone

The SDD replaces a “Frankenvac” HF through a Thein separator to a plastic barrel, using Rockler quick-connects to each tool. I replaced the HF impeller with the Rikon, and what a difference! I am blessed to be able to just vent outside, so fine filtration is not a concern. The assembled collection corner is amazingly quiet, and has quite a lot ( don’t have the ability to measure airflow) of suction – even on the far end where the SawStop lives. I read of so...

Oneida Super Dust Gorilla - 5 HP

Oneida Super Dust Gorilla - 5 HP

Several months ago, I purchased a new dust collector. Before, I had a Jet 1.5 HP dust collector with a cartridge filter and vortex cone. It did an OK job and was piped into my shop with 4” PVC. My measurements of the flow at the dust collector were 670 CFM at the 6” port and only 450 CFM at the 4” port. The maximum static pressure was 10.25” Inside my shop, the flow was greatly reduced. I decided that I needed something bigger to collect more of the dust and so looked at a number of t...

The picture posted by Ty is almost exactly the way I have my system set up. I have the exhaust connected to a standard 4” dryer vent and due to the Super Dust Deputy, I would say the dryer puts out more lint than my dust collector puts out saw dust. These are fantastic! I’ve seen many set ups, but using a short piece of 4” hose to connect the SDD to the trash can is the way to go for ease of can removal. I’ve seen guys (and gals) come up with all kinds of methods t...

Took a couple weeks to get dust collector. Not bad. Had some hesitation with housing being plastic. Then again car intake manifolds have been plastic for a long time. It is very light. Putting it together took some patience. There are many fasteners. It would have been good to segregate them to make finding them easier. Didn’t expect to be drilling holes or applying a peel and stick gaskets. Not a big deal. Could/should have been done by manufacturer. I was surprised to find ...

Quieter, better filtration than standard shop vac

Quieter, better filtration than standard shop vac

How I Use Dust Collection In My ShopI use a dust collector, as well as two shop vacuums for dust collection. One is a “6.5 hp” Ridgid that stays at the router table, and disconnects easily for shop cleanup. The other one is a small Ridgid vac dedicated to the miter saw. These vacs seem to do their job, and the howling noise they make doesn’t bother me much because the tools they are attached to are just as loud. Furthermore, the miter saw and router table tend to be used...

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.

Powertec 70001 Dust Collector Bag for HF dust collector is a great improvement

Powertec 70001 Dust Collector Bag for HF dust collector is a great improvement

I had used the bag that came with the HF 2hp dust collector since purchasing it a couple of years ago.Always had lots of fine dust everywhere in the shop. Knew that it wasn’t doing a very good job and decided to upgrade. I purchased this bag from Amazon for 29.99 with free shipping. Installation is no different than the original bag.It is certainly a thicker bag, but still fits the same as the original. The improvement in the reduction of fine dustin the shop is amazing. I estima...

An Excellent Small Shop Unit

An Excellent Small Shop Unit

05-19-2016 10:12 PM by Wondermutt | 7 comments »

This is a non product spec hands on review. In a few words, dump your harbor freight 2up unit and get this unit. Here’s why: IT WORKS. Bether than I expected it to. I needed a portable DC. I have a stationary 2hp unit and it works great. What I don’t like is the continual failure of the dust collection bin level alarm and it’s real tall, so making it portable may prove difficult. I tried to make my old hf 2hp unit with a super dust deputy portable, but again, not...

upgrading HF dust collector to cyclone with Grizzly and Wynn

upgrading HF dust collector to cyclone with Grizzly and Wynn

Ok First if you have not bought a dust collector do not do this project instead go ahead and buy the biggest cyclone system you can afford because if you are like me your tools will grow and you collector will become too small Like many I started with a HF collector and put in the home-aid Thein baffle and a Wynn filter when I first started out This was good until I got a bigger joiner and more tool but I always hated the bag and the fact that all the chips were going thru the impell...

The only WW machine I've regretted to date

The only WW machine I've regretted to date

04-18-2016 02:33 AM by Bear1219 | 23 comments »

-1 star for poor fit and finish-1 star for constant sensor failure-1 star for poor customer service I’m usually very happy with all the major woodworking machines I’ve bought, with the exception of my dust collector. It has been the biggest regretted/mistake I’ve made to date. The pictures speak more then words. Before anyone says anything, Yes I did assemble the unit correctly and spent a lot of time doing so making sure it was correct. All connections either have silico...
