DeWalt Dust Extracting Vacuum.....As good as Festool?

DeWalt Dust Extracting Vacuum.....As good as Festool?

12-20-2012 04:04 PM by Cory | 37 comments »

I bought this vacuum for $220 from Amazon a week or so ago to replace a 6 year old Craftsman shop vac. I was drawn to this one because of the auto-on switch and the suction adjustment feature. Those are two items I had been wanting after demoing a Fein and Festool vac. At about half the price of those vacuums, this one performs equally well. There are a few minor negatives, but my experience has been overwhelmingly positive. Positives:-Excellent suction-variable speed/suction power is ...

Home made Dust Collector

Home made Dust Collector

While trying to figure out how to afford a new cyclone dust collector, I started looking at what was available as single components. The Oneida Super Dust Deputy came up and that`s all I needed to get the project motor started. Since I re-kindled my love of woodworking, I have been using a Fein vac and a Dust Deputy kit for all my dust collections needs. This has worked well, but not the greatest with the planer and tablesaw. So when I started this project, I was looking to create a system wi...

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...

Poor Man's Festool

Poor Man's Festool

05-11-2010 04:05 AM by PurpLev | 20 comments »

Intro For the longest time I wanted to get the Festool CT-33 (I would also be satisfied with the 22 version) as I believe that to be the flagship unit of the company – sure they make exceptional tools, but this one is by far their best contender in my opinion. Problem is – for my hobby use, it’s just beyond what I can justify to spend on a small dust extractor. A month ago, someone posted the PC 7810 vacuum on craigslist, but it was in a very used condition, and I felt...

New Dust Collection System  Grizzly 548, East Caroga Cyclone

New Dust Collection System Grizzly 548, East Caroga Cyclone

01-26-2013 05:44 PM by Bob A in NJ | 17 comments »

Here’s my new DC system and includes a Grizzly G0548Z, East Carago Cyclone, Penn State Remote and Blastco Pipes, gates and elbows. System works well, took a few weekends to get it all together. Work flow: Had to install new 220 breaker in the main panel.Needed new wiring and 220 remote contol from Penn State Industries. The remote works very well, no issues. I tape magnets to the remote and attach it to the cyclone or lathe most of the time. The 548 DC itself is very nice...

Delta 50-760 1 1/2 HP Dust Collector - Not so Pleased

Delta 50-760 1 1/2 HP Dust Collector - Not so Pleased

03-12-2009 11:01 PM by CharlieD | 33 comments »

I see several satisified user with good reviews on this product. However it has a flaw that bugs me, and is not acceptable. I bought one new in December. The unit does a very good job with collection, is reasonably quiet and I’m happy with that. But new, right out of the box I found a problem. The rod that holds up the dust filter bag attaches to the top/side of the unit’s housing. The first time I moved the unit the rod hung on an over head beam and even though it wasnR...

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...

Penn State Industries 2.5HP Tempest S-Series Cyclone Dust Collector Temp1425S

05-13-2014 10:48 PM by English | 19 comments »

I am a retired engineer. I have a 672 sq. ft. shop. I purchased my 2.5 hp Tempest S in Jan 2014. I built a isolated support stand out of 2” x 4” board and mounted the Tempest so that the top was at 110” about 10” from the ceiling. I installed a 6” sheet metal duct system made of 6” 26 gauge snap lock duct and 6” 26 gauge fittings. I was able to find the 26 gauge 6” duct, 90° elbows and reducers at Ferguson. I found the flue style wyes at Home Depot online. The 6” blast gates are s...

Shop Air Cleaner

Shop Air Cleaner

There have been posts on LJ’s and other places about taking a box fan and putting a furnace filter on it to filter the shop air. When I was on my Mini Shop Tour a couple of weeks ago, I noticed a home made one hanging in the shop of Greg3G. On my way home from my surgery my wife asked me if I wanted to go shopping. I was willing. We went to an Salvage store called Ollie's Bargain Outlet While I was there I spied this box fan. It was $25.00 I asked my wife what box fans cost now a ...
