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 ...

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

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...

G0548Z - 2HP Canister Dust Collector

G0548Z - 2HP Canister Dust Collector

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...

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

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...

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...

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...

Super Dust Deputy

Super Dust Deputy

08-28-2014 02:12 AM by Tennwood | 5 comments »

I modified my DC system for the ‘nth time, this time replacing my Woodcraft garbage can cyclone lid for the Super Dust Deputy. The trash can lid did fine but I was still getting a lot of dust and chips into the bag and filter. I really hate changing the bag and cleaning out the filter. It is a dirty messy job that kind of defeats the purpose when dust is going everywhere in the shop just to get the bag off, and to take the filter off to get it outside to clean. So I bit the cost and modif...

JDS Company 750ER Air Filtration System

JDS Company 750ER Air Filtration System

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...

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...

An EXCELLENT dust collection solution for a small shop

An EXCELLENT dust collection solution for a small shop

05-01-2013 11:17 PM by StumpyNubs | 30 comments »

We did a whole series of episodes on Blue Collar Woodworking about the importance of fine dust collection. Our solution was a homemade cyclone and six inch duct work. But I am also a realist. I know not everybody has the room or the budget for a system like that. A lot of shops are mobile and the dust collection has to be easy to swap between machines. So I did some testing and I think the Rockler Dust Right system is the best option for a number of reasons. The following three video revie...
