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...

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...

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 ...

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...

All I wanted was quiet but recieved so much more

All I wanted was quiet but recieved so much more

I’ve been wanting to replace my noisy Rigid only because it’s noisy. I wasn’t expecting all the other features. The wall mount frees up valuable floor space. The hoses are much more flexible than I’m accustom to. They feel more like rubber than plastic. They are the smaller diameter but the the main unit and the hose ends appears to be able to accept the larger (2.25” I think) hoses if you prefer. I like the conventional dust bag. It appears to be an op...

Onieda Dust Deputy

Onieda Dust Deputy

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...

Poor customer service at Oneida Air Systems

Poor customer service at Oneida Air Systems

12-31-2011 01:41 PM by Kirko | 26 comments »

I was initially happy with the product until I noticed the cardboard drum had collapsed, since then my experience with Lisa Barone and customer service for Oneida has been very disappointing. After being told the cardboard drum should not have collapsed they refused to replace it. I purchased the steel replacement drum and lid early in November, I did not receive it, 2 weeks later when I contacted Ms. Barone she told me it will ship out that day and gave me an incorrect tracking number. A mo...

I am going to post this comment, or something similar to it, elsewhere on this site to get the best chance of feedback. I am a 70-year-old retired worker but am now also a working artist who does wall-hanging collages made from enameled or stained wood pieces. I have items in a half-dozen galleries and outlets in this town and another town close by, and the income from the projects helps to supplement my retirement income. It also helps to keep my wife from harping about me needing to get ...

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 | 12 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...

General International 10-105M1 1.5 hp Dust Collector

General International 10-105M1 1.5 hp Dust Collector

08-25-2010 10:06 PM by Manitario | 10 comments »

I bought this dust collector a few weeks ago after much research into dust collection units. Ideally, I’d loved to have been able to afford the cost (in money and shop space) of a cyclone dust collector, but it wouldn’t have fit into my budget or 13×22’ garage. Initially I was interested in the Delta 50-760 after reading some good reviews, however the owner of the local tool store convinced me that the General was a better unit from what he’d heard from his custom...
