JDS Company 2 HP Cyclone Dust Collector, Model 2100 CKV

First, let me thank all those that have taken the time and made the effort to write reviews. I’ve read hundreds. I appreciated them all. It’s time for me to give back to the Lumberjocks community. This is my first review….ever. I hope to be a little more diligent about writing reviews. I wanted to start with something that I really like – my JDS 2 HP Cyclone Dust Collector, Model 2100 CKV. It was my third big purchase after a new Jet JWBS-14SF bandsaw and a slightly-used Powermatic 200...

Works as designed, a real time saver

Works as designed, a real time saver

Accessing my dust collector in my garage is a bit of a challenge that requires opening my garage door. So if I’m only doing a couple of cuts, I’ve developed a bad habit of not firing up the dust collector. I started out by ordering the Jet version of this dust collector remote from a seller on Ebay – I have a jet DC, so should have a matching remote, right? Well, even though it was listed as New, it showed up with a broken case, so after a 3 week return process, which e...

Separator for shop vac

Separator for shop vac

02-10-2015 05:07 PM by philba | 4 comments »

This is distributed by Woodcraft. The first picture shows the contents of the box. I bought it to build a sanding vac cart – separator and a small shop vac with a HEPA filter plus an auto switch for the vac. It was on sale for (iirc) $49.95, regular price $79.95. I went to check the price on the Woodcraft web site but it didn’t come up in the search. I know my local store had them as recently as mid January. A label on the side of the box even says “woodcraft”. Not ...

Laguna 2HP review

Laguna 2HP review

02-09-2015 04:20 PM by MrSammy | 29 comments »

My wife purchased the 2 HP Laguna Dust Collector for me. I was always hesitant on buying Laguna because of their horrible customer service reviews. I currently have a 14/12 band saw and have had zero problems. I will explain the problems I experienced and explain why I will never purchase a Laguna product ever again. My wife bought me the 2 HP Dust Collector because I do woodworking to cope with my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She copes with my drinking from doing and experiencing e...

It Works!! OK, there is more than one line.. It’s a short novel. lol Thanks to this gent on youtube, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amzUACmIKDs), and this good deal on Amazon, (http://www.amazon.com/PSI-Woodworking-LR110-3-110-Volt-Collector/dp/B00004S9AI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422052792&sr=8-1&keywords=long+ranger+III), I finally got it, and I’m happy as a tick on a hound. While at the lathe spinning the ga-zillion pens and such, I used to have to walk over and...

Wow, talk about misleading ratings

Wow, talk about misleading ratings

01-02-2015 07:48 PM by philba | 18 comments »

I have yet to use this product but was struck by their labeling when I opened it up. The first picture shows the outside of the box clearly stating 15A current capacity. The second picture shows the inside where the device itself says 12A and the sticker says 9A. No where on the outside does it say 9 (or even 12) amps. While I get that ratings can change, having 3 different ratings is disturbing. I think it’s really bad when the outside says one thing but the inside says another. T...

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

For the longest time I would use my PSI DC1B-XL for my dust collection needs, but since I upgraded my jointer from a 6” to an 8” and my planer from my lunchbox to a new 3hp spiral cutter I have been buying my lumber in the rough from a local dealer. When I started to get my lumber this way I quickly realized I needed a bigger dust collector. I have read numerous reviews from this webpage and others about the HF 2hp dust collector so I grabbed my coupon and off I went to get my b...

Updated ClearVue Mini CV06 with cone is much improved

Updated ClearVue Mini CV06 with cone is much improved

11-21-2014 02:56 PM by Bill1974 | 5 comments »

I saw that ClearVue has updated their Mini CV06 shop vacuum separator. I called them up and asked if it would be possible to update my previous generation CV06 and they said it was possible. They sent me the parts (lower cone, a couple of gaskets and hardware) for $40 + $10 for shipping. Money well spent in the long run. The update really improves the separation to the point with almost nothing gets into the shop vac. I took apart the CV06 off the old shop vac housing that I had at...

JET DC-1100VX-CK Dust Collector: Unpacking and Assembly

JET DC-1100VX-CK Dust Collector: Unpacking and Assembly

I may be the only person nutty enough to think this might be of interest to anyone, but if you are contemplating purchase of one of these units, this may be of interest to you. I purchased this unit from Global Industrial on Nov. 6, 2014. The price was $699.99 to which was added $35.00 for residential delivery, totaling $734.99. Unless you have a loading dock, I recommend the residential delivery service because everything is shipped shrink-wrapped on a palette. My delivery was made by Estes....

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...
