"Bucket Head" Vacuum

"Bucket Head" Vacuum

02-13-2011 09:57 PM by FJPetruso | 5 comments »

I found this Bucket Head Vacuum on display at Home Depot a while back & decided to give it a try. Heck… It’s only 20 bucks & uses an ordinary 5 gallon plastic bucket for collection of dust & chips. (I just happen to have acquired a couple of plastic buckets that have the same rim dimensions but hold about 7-1/2 gsllons & are several inches taller.) There’s no doubt that it’s a cheap vacuum but it works well. The filter is a simple pouch over the suc...

Dust Deputy

Dust Deputy

02-21-2010 12:20 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 58 comments »

As you look at the advertising, Oneida seems to make a pretty outrageous claim concerning the efficiency of it’s Dust Deputy, they claim it captures 99% of the dust. In case you don’t know, the Dust Deputy is a mini cyclone that fits on a 5 gallon bucket lid which acts as a particle separator for your shopvac. I have been interested in this claim, and cautious, because I am interested in good dust collection for my shop. I collect as much dust at the source as possible, this is...

Exaktor EXOA-2 Table Saw Overarm Dust Collector

Exaktor EXOA-2 Table Saw Overarm Dust Collector

02-04-2010 12:41 AM by Padre | 14 comments »

Finally ordered this and it came today. Here are my observations after putting it together. 1. The package came and was adequately packaged. The outside of the box was damaged, but all the interior items were fine. 2. All the parts were present and accounted for. 3. The directions stink. It gives you some pictures, but mostly you use a trial and error method of putting this together. It took me about 3 hours to put this together, a project that now that I know what to do shou...

Powermatic 1300 Dust Collector

Powermatic 1300 Dust Collector

05-10-2009 03:01 AM by Scott Bryan | 19 comments »

Introduction For years I have use a Delta AP300 3/4 HP dust collector as my tool of choice for collecting dust. I largely bought this collector based solely on price. At times it has surprised me with its efficiency but it did little about controlling the fine dust created by the table saw and sanding operations. Plus it has a very limited capacity. With an idea towards controlling the fine dust I recently received a Powermatic 1300. The dust collector and air cleaner were receive...

G0703P - Ignore the naysayers

Hello All, I finally upgraded to a better DC system for my shop. I had previously built a Thien Baffle for my HF DC and that worked pretty well (better than the stock HF DC) but I still had fine dust everywhere. I sold that DC before I moved last year. In setting up my new shop I decided to treat myself so I started the hunt, I knew I wanted a Cyclone from past research and I also knew the size of the duct had a large part to play in its efficiency. I did a good amount of research and n...

my dust collector

my dust collector

08-17-2008 04:03 PM by woodnut | 10 comments »

Let me first say that this is the only dust collector that I have ever owned so I can’t make a comparision betweein this one and any other collector. Now for the review. From out of the box it took me about 3 hours to have it hanging on the wall. This sucker is heavy so you better have a friend or two to help with the lifting. After the installaton I was surprised at how strong this collector is. My shop is 20’x40’ and I can put my planner at the end of my shop and it has no...

Keen Dust Router Review.  Above and below table dust collection

Keen Dust Router Review. Above and below table dust collection

03-21-2012 12:50 AM by ardbeg | 12 comments »

This is a review for the Keen Products Company’s “Dust Router” http://www.keen-products.com/ This simple device really works wonders. I have a Bench Dog Cast Iron wing extension router table (the pic above is not my set up) and thought I was getting decent chip collection through the fence but this $40 gizmo makes DC’ing at the router table an art. DescriptionThe kit comes with:-a sheet of plastic that you need to attach between your router and plate. Easy enou...

G0548Z - 2HP Canister Dust Collector

G0548Z - 2HP Canister Dust Collector

03-12-2012 02:58 PM by Mainiac Matt | 15 comments »

Background...I’ve been reading up on and conspiring to get DC into a working shop for what seems like ages. And though I’ve always wanted to set up a two stage cyclone system, when it came right down to it, I didn’t have the space or the money. So turning my sights to single stage units, I flagged the G0548Z as my pick. Fast forward to January, when I found that the price had gone up in the 2012 catalog, but that the holiday sale of $375 was still good for a few more days...

Ok…so, I had been shopping around for a dust collection system for my shop vac. I kept having to clean my filter and I was really getting sick of it. I have an older Rigid shop vac and I started a bathroom remodel. I’ve read about several dust collection systems….both good and bad. I heard really great things about Oneida Dust Deputy, but also that you get what you pay for with cheap plastic. I looked at Grizzly but didn’t see anything to attach to my shop vac (but ...

I finally got my DC man it sucks

I finally got my DC man it sucks

I ordered my Penn State 1 1/2 hp “Dustroyer” a week ago Sunday and I finally got it today. I was home with a “sick” 2 year old that when I asked if he wanted to go out to the shop he grabbed his coat. He helped me set it up witch took about an hour would have been less time with less help. The directions stink. I had to stick it in the addition until mommy came home and it stands 92” tall so it has to be lined up justright in the shop to fit. This evening I hook...
