Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

7 days ago by Ajs73 | 6 comments »

Bought this filter unit at a garage sale,brand new in box for $40. I don’t haveanything to compare it with but I’m amazedat how much dust accumulates on the outerfilter. I’m also running a HF dust collector. The unit has a 5 mic. outer and 1 mic. innerfilters,3 speeds, & remote control. For $40 anythingthat keeps dust out of my lungs is worthbuying. It’s a perfect size for my smallbasement shop with low ceilings. Menards is selling them for $160& I believ...

I hate cleaning up after turning !!

I hate cleaning up after turning !!

19 days ago 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 ...

Home made Dust Collector

Home made Dust Collector

26 days ago by gotnonickname | 12 comments »

While trying to figure out how to afford a new cyclone dust collector, I started looking at what was available as single components. The Oneida Super Dust Deputy came up and that`s all I needed to get the project motor started. Since I re-kindled my love of woodworking, I have been using a Fein vac and a Dust Deputy kit for all my dust collections needs. This has worked well, but not the greatest with the planer and tablesaw. So when I started this project, I was looking to create a system wi...

Penn State Industries 2.5HP Tempest S-Series Cyclone Dust Collector  Temp1425S

Penn State Industries 2.5HP Tempest S-Series Cyclone Dust Collector Temp1425S

59 days ago by English | 14 comments »

I am a retired engineer. I have a 672 sq. ft. shop. I purchased my 2.5 hp Tempest S in Jan 2014. I built a isolated support stand out of 2” x 4” board and mounted the Tempest so that the top was at 110” about 10” from the ceiling. I installed a 6” sheet metal duct system made of 6” 26 gauge snap lock duct and 6” 26 gauge fittings. I was able to find the 26 gauge 6” duct, 90° elbows and reducers at Ferguson. I found the flue style wyes at Home Depot online. The 6” blast gates are s...

Building a cyclone system

Building a cyclone system

63 days ago by Crickett | 19 comments »

**I built my shop within the past two years and at first, I have to admit the dust collection wasn’t much of a concern to me. I simply would use adapters and wheel around my shop vac to different machines as needed. The more and more ignored this problem (for the sake of more time woodworking of course) I would notice how many respirators I started going through. But being how I am, I couldn’t just go by a cyclone system from someone – I had a burning need to piece one toget...

Dust Deputy / Oneida Air Systems Inc.

Dust Deputy / Oneida Air Systems Inc.

81 days ago by OakHill | 6 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...

Brand new Bosch semi auto vacuum VAC090s

Brand new Bosch semi auto vacuum VAC090s

84 days ago by Jonwilliam | 2 comments »

I had some discretionary money to “invest” in a new tool and I settled on a vacuum. It was between the Festool ct 26-36 or the new Bosch line of vacuums. Vac140a/s, Vac140a/s. The “a” is for auto, the “s” is for semi-auto filter cleaning. I had to make a decision quick due to festool’s price increases the first of this month. So since I am also in construction (excavating) I went with the Bosch and so far am very pleased. I already have a grea...

grngate automatic blast gates for dust collectors

93 days ago by bonesbr549 | 5 comments »

First let me start by saying I have been looking for a product like this for a long time. Being a computer geek by trade, had been researching a circuit build with sensor to do this very thing. Looking at everything from car door window actuators as the lift mechanism to pneumatic actuators. Costs no matter the option was just to high to justify. I also looked at echogate, but again too much $$. Then one day doing a google search hoping to find more info for my own build, I came acro...

Good Value for a Downdraft Sanding table

Good Value for a Downdraft Sanding table

100 days ago by tme4tls | 3 comments »

Last year I had a real problem breathing when I had to do prolonged periods of sanding during the winter months with the shop closed up tight to retain heat. I first though about getting a Trend Airshield but the weight sitting on top of my head during use wasn’t very comfortable so I started thinking seriously about a downdraft table. I wanted the Denray brand but the prices were more than I could afford and looked at the Grizzly models. Grizzlys pricing was more affordable and th...

Hi, First time posting,Long time reader I just finished my HF DC mod. When I first added a seperator with Theinbaffle I noticed a big drop in suction. Once I eliminated all bends and flex hosethe collector seem like I gained all suction back. (Plus saved a lot of room) CollectorIs hung off shelf and only thing touching the floor is seperator can. Seems Awesome. I would like to add a wynn filter at somepoint when I have $$$$. (I can’t see how any more air could flow through t...
