Dust Deputy for Router Table

Dust Deputy for Router Table

02-07-2010 04:03 AM by dhg | 9 comments »

Routing my test piece for raised panel doors with the Dust Deputy connected to the router cabinet and fence, I was sold on this dust collector. I’d give it more stars if I could. I had gone to Onieda’s website for more information and saw how the dust swirled around, when I saw it on mine I just started laughing thinking this thing is going to work. After routing 9 raised panels and emptying the canister once, total of about 6-7 gallons of sawdustl, it was time to look into the s...

Onieda Dust Deputy

Onieda Dust Deputy

I’ve been using my Dust Deputy for several months now and feel it is time to give it a review. The theory is very sound and as long as the plastic stays together it works as advertised. BUT I can’t keep the top on. The glue at the factory failed, the epoxy failed and the “special glue from HD was no better. Evidently the plastic that it is made from is impervious to any kind of glue to keep this sucker together. I complained to their service department and was told to get th...

Dust Deputy Delux Kit

Dust Deputy Delux Kit

I received the kit today and I was excited to try this sucker out. (No pun intended….Okay maybe a little) The kit had all of the bolts, washers and nuts. It went together easily, but the directions were not perfectly clear. The only complaint of assembly is that there was not enough copper tape included to ground the system as suggested. I took the system to my shop and hooked it up to my Shop vac. The cyclone’s connections were tapered so connecting to my vac was easy. I cleaned ...

I thought this may be an answer for benchtop tool dust collection. I often move and sometimes use my bench top planer and jointer outdoors in nice weather on portable carts due to my small shop space. It was rated at 300 CFM. When buying it, I thought taking dust right at the port and not having to travel through long hoses would help. It did not! The suction is poor, you could get a similar result from a shop vac if you reduce down the dust port to the smaller hose size on the vac. Like a sh...

Now's the time to get a dust collector!

Now's the time to get a dust collector!

This collector has been reviewed several times here so I won’t go into to much of the details. The reason i am reviewing it now is because I got the latest issue of “Wood” magazine and there’s a coupon in it for this collector. You can get it with that coupon for just $150 (that’s $100 off the regular price). And it is every bit as good as the VASTLY more expensive Jet and Grizzly models with similar specs. Here’s why I love this collector… 1. P...

Great for small shop using only one tool at time

Great for small shop using only one tool at time

I don’t know how informative this review will be as it’s my first dust collector and review, but I’ll try. I was originally looking at the 50-760 after hearing lots of good reviews, but since I plan on only using one tool at a time and I dont mind rolling this around from tool to tool I didn’t mind something a little cheaper as I was trying to save money (or so I thought), quieter, and smaller. Despite reviews I’ve seen on amazon, this thing was very simple t...

I wanted to upgrade my dust collection for a shop vac to the real deal.I always trust delta machinery so I thought this was a good way to go. I headed right over to woodcraft and I saw this shiny beast. I purchased it that day along with the appropriate fittings and hoses. woodcraft has an amazing supply of dust collection accessories I might add!I got home and began to assemble the unit. There is a moderate amount of assembly but the instructions for once are actually helpful. I would sugges...

Rockler Lathe Dust Hood Item 67899

Rockler Lathe Dust Hood Item 67899

11-16-2009 03:10 AM by FJPetruso | 3 comments »

I’ve found this clear lathe dust collection hood very useful. It take a little bit of planning when setting it up on a lathe such as extending the tail stock support out to make room for your tool rest support and it helps a lot to have a flexible work light that can be kept low & to the rear of the lathe. This keeps the glare off of the flip-down clear shield making it easy to use, see photo. I made a wooden bracket out of the scrap end of an oak newel post, also see photo. The...

EZ squeeze dust collection hose clamps

EZ squeeze dust collection hose clamps

12-04-2009 10:22 PM by hairy | 1 comment »

Why didn’t I think of this? It’s too easy. I have to move my dust hose around a lot, and these work for me. They actually have a pretty good grip, but they won’t make your arms look Popeye. Unpacking and assembly is pretty straightforward, although there are no instructions . At 2 for $6, it’s a good deal. http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2080307/28347/2-piece-Double-Loop-Squeeze-Hose-Clamp-for-4-Dust-Collection-Hose.aspx

Smoothes air flow. HUGE improvement for dust collection on smaller machines.

Smoothes air flow. HUGE improvement for dust collection on smaller machines.

To be blunt, I have never been truly happy with the dust collection on my Ryobi AP1301 13” planer. I mean it works and all, but it’s never worked well. Pulling from a shop vac fitted with a separator and a LOT of hose, I have always felt that the ribbed hose robbed me of too much air flow to be truly effective… I have used the square edge DC fittings the ones that step down at an almost 90 degree angle like the ones I got from Rockler, and was never pleased with the resul...
