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...

Decent Dust Collection Really Cheap

Decent Dust Collection Really Cheap

01-23-2011 12:13 AM by patcollins | 6 comments »

My 1970’s Craftsman Contractors saw has zero dust collection and much of it falls straight down so I thought about using some sort of bag for it. I happened on this canvas “Table Saw Dust Bag” at Harbor Freight and it was only $5.99 so I thought I would give it a whirl. The material is pretty cheap and the snaps aren’t anywhere close to being put on straight or even, but that’s alright. The bag came with the male end of the snaps attached to sheet metal scre...

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...

Both the tool (and its price) are extraordinary.

With my new shop in the house (as well as a bit of asthma in both me and the offspring) I’ve needed to invest a lot more money and time into dust collection. I installed a JDS 2hp unit and plumbed piping—even with a reducer which provided benchtop extraction—but I quickly found that I find the noise of the large unit “worth it” only when running the big tools. For the small tools—and particularly the sander—I had been using a combination of a sma...

Dust Collector.

Dust Collector.

The only reason this did not get a 5 Star, is the Directions & the casters! I have to get new ones as they’re junk! Why they would not include better casters, I have no idea. For the money and CFM rating along with the 1 Micron Bag being standard, I felt this was the best bang for your buck. At $259.00 plus shipping I thought it would be better than trying to make a Harbor Freight one work. Not there is anything wrong with a HF one for those of my Fellow LJ’s that have them. I have be...

A Handy Addition To A Single Stage Dust Collection System

A Handy Addition To A Single Stage Dust Collection System

01-02-2011 11:00 PM by Dustmite97 | 7 comments »

I have been using a single stage dust collection system for over a year now and have found that the bottom bag fills up quickly and the top filter bag gets really messy. I finally upgraded to a two stage system and it works great. The lid I use has two ports and the port that connects to the tool has an L-shaped elbow that connects to the underside of the port. I have the lid on a heavy duty Rubbermaid garbage can but might upgrade to a deeper can sometime. After doing a bunch of planing and ...

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

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

01-02-2011 02:50 AM 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

12-20-2010 04:03 AM 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 interested http://www.jpthien.com/smf/index.php?topic=429.msg2187#msg2187

Big, Powerful and CHEAP this Friday!

Big, Powerful and CHEAP this Friday!

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...
