Acrylic Lathe Dust Hood

Acrylic Lathe Dust Hood

I caught this on sale for 20 bux. Original price is 30. Anyone who turns a lot of pens would benefit by having this. A very nice way to collect dust while spinning pens, pencils, bottle stoppers, and/or any small spindle type turnings. Wood or acrylic project pieces, the chips get sucked right out of your way. I don’t think it would work very well for turning a bowl because of the way it wraps around the project piece. It is very easy to remove since it mounts with some pretty stout mag...

Delta 50-760 1-1/2 HP 1200 CFM Dust Collector

Delta 50-760 1-1/2 HP 1200 CFM Dust Collector

01-22-2008 02:07 AM by RickL | 3 comments »

Just received and set up my new dust collector for the shop. Since I moved in to the enclosed shop out of the garage, I found the 1 hp JET wasn’t doing the job. What interested me about the Delta is the 1 micron upper bag. After reading the recent reviewsd in WOOD Magazine on dust collectors. and doing my own internet research I settled on this unit. Purchased on-line and shipped in by truck. The box was about 95# and not too hard to handle, luck would have it I was home today to receiv...

Delta 50-760 best dust collector of its class

Delta 50-760 best dust collector of its class

06-11-2008 08:24 AM by Woodshopfreak | 11 comments »

Wow, is all I have to say. This was a part graduation part birthday present and I have to say I love this thing. It has made my woodworking experience a whole lot better. I bought about fifty feet of PVC and ran it along all the walls in my shop connecting it to my jointer, table saw, bandsaw, router table, and put in a handy floor sweep. I even put in a shop vac port that can hook right up to a shop vac hose and I can use it for my miter saw or for sanding or routing. I installed blast gates...

I picked up this Delta 50-760 off of eBay a couple of weeks ago. I lucked out the guy i bought this from had bought it a few months back and changed jobs and was moving and sold his whole shop.It had been used for about 1/2 hr. The collector had about an inch of dust in the bag. Ok so I have this hooked up to my contractors saw from the bottom with a 4 inch she that is 20ft long. The back of the saw is not sealed up and the suction from this thing captures almost all the dust. I have cut M...

I purchased this at the Baltimore Woodworking Show recently. I was in the market for one (cough, cough, wheeze ? ) and was looking at both the Delta and the Steel City. They had received the best reviews so I thought I would look at them first hand. The found that the both machines were fairly comparable in statics but the Steel City came at a better price; I picked it up for $320 including tax which was about $40 less than the Delta. I do like the 1 micron bag that comes standard. I also ...

What a long wait...

What a long wait...

I tried to purchase this back in February time frame when WoodCraft had them on sale for 100 dollars off. Well they sold out quick and they put my name down and guaranteed me the 299.00 sale price. They said Steel City had not planned so many would sell at that price. They said that it should only be a few weeks before they got them in. Well two weeks turned into months and after eight months they called and asked if I still wanted it. I said are you still honoring the price of 299 dollars? T...

Steel City 1.5 HP Model 65200 Dust Collector

Steel City 1.5 HP Model 65200 Dust Collector

Yes, I do know that Steel City is no more, but I figure, why not review it anyway, as someone may still be interested in purchasing one while they are being clearanced out. To be clear, I just purchased this today, so my experience is very limited with it, so take it for what it’s worth. I was able to purchase it on clearance, so I got what I felt was a good deal. I’m not too worried about product support down the road, as i figure a dust collector is fairly simple and many par...

New Dust Collection System Just installed

This is one of the most efficient dust collectors I have run across in quite some time. The manufacturers have managed to keep the noise levels down to almost unbelievable readings and kept electric costs down to nearly nothing. However, I have been notified that refrigeration costs have increased in some workshops. I am impressed as to how these items work together as a whole, with the Harper bench brush raking dust onto the floor so that the Publix broom can pull the sawdust away from prob...

Since I had some encounters with turning and sanding toxic woods earlier this year I’ve been saving up for a dust collector. I turn wood on a Jet 1220 and don’t generate a ton of sawdust or sanding dust but enough to be a nuisance. The shop vac can’t keep up and is quiet noisy. I have experience with some 1.5hp Jet and Delta models but they were very bigger and noisier than I was looking for. Amazon currently has Delta AP-400’s on sale for $138 shipped but I would b...
