Canister Filters

Canister Filters

10-22-2010 07:27 PM by dbray45 | 16 comments »

I have a generic 2HP dust collector that had a bag filter. This system, when started up, would give off a pretty good puff of dust in the air, kind of defeating what it was suppored to do. I recently bought a cannister filter and new bottom bag for this from Penn State. The overall permformance is much better and the dust in the shop much less. They give the filter a liftime warranty. They have differnt size filters to fit different rigs and for the price, wasn’t too bad when you in...

Plastic Super Dust deputy

Plastic Super Dust deputy

01-31-2014 01:14 AM by Alan72 | 6 comments »

I replaced my rockler dust seperator with the Super Dust Deputy. I just finished setting it up to what I think is the most efficent way. I had it for over a month and I couldn’t figure away to set it up, I ended up seperating the Dust collector motor and hanging it from the wall over the 6” dust port of the SDD. I ordered a 5” hose from Penn State cut it in half ran one from the SDD to my main PVC ducting and the other to the dust collector. I’m using a HF dust collec...

Dust Deputy works like a charm

Dust Deputy works like a charm

Just picked up my DD today at the local Woodcraft store. Was not sure what to expect…only watched the online video as well as the reviews here and at other sites. Put it together per instructions, hooked it up to my old Ridgid 4.5 hp wet-dry vac and “POW”...it worked much better than expected. It was like adding a supercharger to my vac…cleaned up alot of sawdust on the floor and inside my TS cabinet in no time flat. I plan on getting a new 6.5 shop vac soo...

Very poorly assembled

Very poorly assembled

I ordered 2 of the Oneida Dust Deputies to set up on two different shop vacs since they were on sale for $39.Opened them up and the tops on both of them were a bit skewed. I pressed on the section that looked like it was not on all the way and POP, off it came. Looked at the second one and barely gave it a tap and …...bummer. I kinda had to laugh because it was not a total surprise after lilredweldingrod’s reviewI was hoping they had remedied this fault by now. After a close...

Dust Collector.

Dust Collector.

The only reason this did not get a 5 Star, is the Directions & the casters! I have to get new ones as they’re junk! Why they would not include better casters, I have no idea. For the money and CFM rating along with the 1 Micron Bag being standard, I felt this was the best bang for your buck. At $259.00 plus shipping I thought it would be better than trying to make a Harbor Freight one work. Not there is anything wrong with a HF one for those of my Fellow LJ’s that have them. I have be...

An Excellent DC!

An Excellent DC!

Update: At christmas time I upgraded to a 2 micron filter bag. I noticed a big difference and I am very happy now. Because of the upgrade I decided to edit my review. With the 2 micron bag it is exactly the same as the 10-105M model, so I can pretty much call it that one now. in conclusion, I now rate it 5 stars. I have been woodworking since grade five and always had a big problem with dust in the shop. I started reading up on dust collectors and got very interested in them. just this yea...

Ridgid 16 Gal Pro Vac 1851 a real good performer

Ridgid 16 Gal Pro Vac 1851 a real good performer

10-05-2011 12:41 AM by yrob | 6 comments »

This weekend I went and bought a new shop vacuum. My old crappy one from Lowes was not even powerful enough to vacuum plane shavings.. I went to Home Depot and bought their most powerful one. For $159.00 it is money well invested. It comes with a 16 Gallon tank and plenty of accessories. The port is a standard 2 1/2 ” which is one the the reasons I bough it. There are adapters available to go from 2.5 to 4” and hook up to tools like a planner. This thing is a beast. The suct...

DeWalt DC515B 18V Cordless 1/2 Gallon Wet / Dry Vacuum

Thought I’d post a review for this thing since I didn’t see one here. Let me start out by saying, I love it! I usually don’t get too passionate over my tools but this thing has met and exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. First a little history on how I came to buy it. I have been using B&D DustBusters around the house for years, was on my second one at the time I bought this. The problems with these DustBusters is that the batteries are not readily replaceab...

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...

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...
