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...

Shop Air Cleaner

Shop Air Cleaner

06-03-2009 05:03 AM by Karson | 13 comments »

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 ...

Grizzly GO703P  The right Dust Collector for my shop

Grizzly GO703P The right Dust Collector for my shop

05-15-2012 02:50 AM by Dewshan | 12 comments »

After many years of building projects without good dust collection I decided it was time to get serious about controlling the dust in my shop. Besides the obvious health issues it is also not much fun to be covered in dust after a long day of woodworking. I also recently upgraded my table saw to a JET hybrid that has a dust port and I was feeling a little guilty about running the saw without one. My shop is a 2 car garage that I also use to work on cars so I wanted a DC that could be mo...

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 ...

Keep children and animals away from the ports!

Keep children and animals away from the ports!

Finally, after many months of moving, new shop set, starting a new job, etc. I have got my Clearvue Cyclone up and running. I’ll run through a bit of my decision process leading to my purchase, then the installation, and finally its performance. Decision I had an average setup; a 1.5hp canister DC connected to a short run of 6” pipe with 4” flex hose drops to each machine. The setup worked well to capture the chips from the jointer and planer, collect the shavings from the TS c...

I finally got my DC man it sucks

I finally got my DC man it sucks

02-19-2009 04:31 AM by Jim | 18 comments »

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...

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

10-09-2011 01:00 PM by Don Johnson | 4 comments »

I obtained this product from ALDI, and I appreciate that they may not have outlets all over the world, but for UK (and German ?) LJs, looking for a cheap and cheerful dust collector to go before a domestic vacuum cleaner, at £14.99 this could be a useful accessory. The ports are simply positioned vertically in the top, so there is probably little cyclone effect, and the system depends on the included Herpa filter to prevent ‘nasties’ getting to the driving vacuum cleaner. But...

JDS Company 750ER Air Filtration System

JDS Company 750ER Air Filtration System

10-30-2010 08:59 PM by glassyeyes | 7 comments »

This is a VERY PRELIMINARY rating, since I only acquired this in the past few weeks. I couldn’t decide between 4 stars and 5, for the minor reasons noted below. I can’t speak to longevity, obviously. After a serious round of allergies, I thought I’d better do something about the dust in my shop. I chose this air filter in part based on various reviews on several sites, including Lumberjocks, and on advice from the staff at Woodcraft in Leesburg, VA. Another factor was t...

Green and Yellow Sucker

Since I had some encounters with turning and sanding toxic woods earlier this year I’ve been saving up for a dust collector. I turn wood on a Jet 1220 and don’t generate a ton of sawdust or sanding dust but enough to be a nuisance. The shop vac can’t keep up and is quiet noisy. I have experience with some 1.5hp Jet and Delta models but they were very bigger and noisier than I was looking for. Amazon currently has Delta AP-400’s on sale for $138 shipped but I would b...

Onieda Dust Deputy

Onieda Dust Deputy

01-27-2011 07:09 AM by lilredweldingrod | 56 comments »

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...
