For The Money Unlikely To Be Beat, But Must Have Sense Of Humor When Assembling

1307 days ago by MattMcC | 21 comments »

So, we will be moving into a new house this summer and I will be moving my woodworking tools to the basement from the garage, where opening the garage door and running a shop vac provided adequate ventiliation and dust collection. Not so in the new basement, so I decided I would invest in a dust collector. After reading many reviews, it seemed that the Harbor Freight 2HP DC unit was a fair value. I decided to take the harbor freight plunge given the cost of name brand units and with my fin...

Dust Deputy with bigger bucket

Dust Deputy with bigger bucket

1320 days ago by westerndf | 6 comments »

So I have had the dust deputy for about 2 years and was using the 5 gallon buckets that came with the kit. I got tired of emptying the buckets during planning so I searched and found the perfect fit. It was a 32 gallon container from Lowes and its the perfect match. I have attached the dust deputy to the bucket and was concerned that the suction would be impacted negatively but was positively surprised that it worked just as good if not better that before. I say better because I don’...

This seperator works great and cost less than $40 if you have scrap MDF/ Laminate laying around. See video of it in action on youtubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZSK88Hjl3A I wrote up a complete step by step process for building this seperator if anyone is interestedhttp://www.freeforum101.com/charlesneil/viewtopic.php?p=11836&mforum=charlesneil#11836

Big, Powerful and CHEAP this Friday!

1347 days ago by StumpyNubs | 12 comments »

Black Friday is a migical time of year! Every November my wife spends days plotting her strategy out to get the best deals on stuff we need and some we just plain want. It may mean standing in line freezing our butts of and listening to some idiots jabber on about who know what for a couple of hours, but it has become a right of passage for us, and we love the challange. This year there’s a lot of things we would like to get, but i thought I’d pass on this tidbit to my fellow L...

2HP Dusty - Great Value

2HP Dusty - Great Value

1357 days ago by DoctorDan | 5 comments »

I’ve upgraded from the Carbatec 1HP FM 320 to the Carbatec 2HP CT-2042 1PH. This machine offers 1500cfm and is fitted with an optional 3 micron pleated cartridge. It has a 6” inlet reduced to two 4” inlets. It’s noise level is acceptable. I have tested it out jointing a few boards not only did it collect the chips very well you could also see the dust from 2” away from the jointer blades getting sucked back in. I believe it offers great value for money.

Summit shop vac, quiet like Fein but less expensive

Summit shop vac, quiet like Fein but less expensive

1363 days ago by Mark Colan | 7 comments »

A month ago, Peachtree Woodworking offered a Summit Wet / Dry Shop Vac on special for $180, though its regular price is $399. I have made do with my Shop Vac brand QSP vacuum for some years, but a few features here made me decide to try the Summit. Its low noise: 65 db. This video gives you an idea of how much more quiet it is. Now that I have received it and compared it to my Shop Vac QSP (where Q means quiet!) I can say the Summit is much quieter, such that I feel safe in using it w...

JDS Company 750ER Air Filtration System

JDS Company 750ER Air Filtration System

1371 days ago 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...

Canister Filters

Canister Filters

1379 days ago by dbray45 | 16 comments »

I have a generic 2HP dust collector that had a bag filter. This system, when started up, would give off a pretty good puff of dust in the air, kind of defeating what it was suppored to do. I recently bought a cannister filter and new bottom bag for this from Penn State. The overall permformance is much better and the dust in the shop much less. They give the filter a liftime warranty. They have differnt size filters to fit different rigs and for the price, wasn’t too bad when you in...

Replaced 1 1/2hp Jet with 2 hp HF

Replaced 1 1/2hp Jet with 2 hp HF

1405 days ago by gene | 44 comments »

I am very pleased with the 2hp HF. I caught it on sale for $151.99. I could not be any happier with the big difference in suction power. This was well worth the price. Knowing what I know now, the jet unit was a waste of my time and money. This unit is twice as good! God bless
