Took a couple weeks to get dust collector. Not bad. Had some hesitation with housing being plastic. Then again car intake manifolds have been plastic for a long time. It is very light. Putting it together took some patience. There are many fasteners. It would have been good to segregate them to make finding them easier. Didn’t expect to be drilling holes or applying a peel and stick gaskets. Not a big deal. Could/should have been done by manufacturer. I was surprised to find ...

Dissapointed

Dissapointed

I am dissapointed with my Delta 50-760 for the following reasons…1. It is too loud.2.It cannot pick up more than ten handplane shavings with out blocking all the grids inside.3.I cannot use it anywhere near my chopsaw, small offcuts have caused several dents in the case when they slam into the inner parts.4.I touch the large fabric bag and a cloud of fine dust falls, Am I breathing this stuff?

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...

dustcutter II dust collection system paired up with ridgid TS3650

dustcutter II dust collection system paired up with ridgid TS3650

09-04-2013 04:44 PM by yrob | 3 comments »

I have a small shop and use a Ridgid TS3650 contractor style table saw. Dust collection has always been a problem. I have tried enclosing the saw with hardboard pieces in the past but this makes it impossible to tilt your blade as the motor sticks out. I recentlly bought this product, the Dustcutter II from Woodcraft. It is basically a dust bag shaped like a funnel with a 2 1/4” port at the end. It attaches to the table saw from the inside by velcro. The installation guide say...

Great cyclonic dust separator

Great cyclonic dust separator

05-29-2012 02:49 AM by Alexandre | 10 comments »

The dust deputy is a great dust separator for my Ridgid shop vac.I gave it 4 stars out of 5 because for a few reasons:1. It’s really unbalanced without a cart when you move it2. Its pretty awkward moving it unless you build a cart.3. Static electricity during dry times is a pain and a hassle as some dust gets in because it tends to stick to the cyclone.4. The container fills up quickly, probably a 35 gal drum would be nice.5. The price is pretty high for a piece of moulded plastic and 2...

upgrading HF dust collector to cyclone with Grizzly and Wynn

upgrading HF dust collector to cyclone with Grizzly and Wynn

05-18-2016 12:49 PM by playingwithmywood | 10 comments »

Ok First if you have not bought a dust collector do not do this project instead go ahead and buy the biggest cyclone system you can afford because if you are like me your tools will grow and you collector will become too small Like many I started with a HF collector and put in the home-aid Thein baffle and a Wynn filter when I first started out This was good until I got a bigger joiner and more tool but I always hated the bag and the fact that all the chips were going thru the impell...

Do not buy at this time, manufacturing error

Do not buy at this time, manufacturing error

03-12-2013 02:48 PM by asloanie | 43 comments »

I recently bought one of these, returned it, and now am about to return the replacement. The unit comes with a mounting platform and casters. They must have recently changed caster manufacturers as the new ones do not line up with the pre-drilled holes in the metal platform. Both units I got had this exact problem. If you want to use your own platform or drill new holes yourself, this still could be a usable system. Just an FYI. I would recommend opening the small box the caster...

My shopvac thanks me

My shopvac thanks me

I recently bit on Rockler’s sale on the Dust Right Vortex. I figured it was time to add a separator to my little Fein shopvac, considering I use the vac for all my shop’s dust collection (TS, BS, router table, drum sander, planer, etc.). I have the small model (Turbo I), so you can imagine how quickly it fills up. Up to this point, I was using it with the stock 5 micron cloth bag filter. The DR Vortex is simply a 10 gallon bucket that comes with a lid (the money part), 5 cas...

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...

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...
