Delta 50-760 1 1/2 HP Dust Collector - Not so Pleased

1959 days ago by CharlieD | 33 comments »

I see several satisified user with good reviews on this product. However it has a flaw that bugs me, and is not acceptable. I bought one new in December. The unit does a very good job with collection, is reasonably quiet and I’m happy with that. But new, right out of the box I found a problem. The rod that holds up the dust filter bag attaches to the top/side of the unit’s housing. The first time I moved the unit the rod hung on an over head beam and even though it wasnR...

Powermatic PM1300

Powermatic PM1300

1968 days ago by hairy | 8 comments »

I’m starting to take over the basement now that the garage is full. I promised to keep it clean,and this is a big part of that. All I have connected at this time is a lathe, but that will change. I looked at just about everything that I could go and look at.To me, this was the ideal machine. Good specs, small size,not real loud. Speaking of specs: Impeller diameter = 12” Sound rating at 3 ft (db) = 75 – 90 Air flow at 6” (CFM) = 1,064Velocity at 6” (F...

I finally got my DC man it sucks

I finally got my DC man it sucks

1981 days ago 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...

The dust collection unit that I chose for my 14 X 21 shop was the Temp142CX from Penn State Industries.

Warranty I used the economy 26 GA duct work which was noticeably heavier than the stores. Penn State had everything I needed to put this unit in. There was nothing that I ordered that they did not hav...

Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turo Vacuum

Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turo Vacuum

2007 days ago by ND2ELK | 4 comments »

I just bought a Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turbo vacuum. The features are: 6-gals, compact, quiet (60dB), variable speed, 6 wheels for stability, cloth filter bag that extracts 5 micron dust, 16’ hose and cord. You can also plug your equipment into it and when you start up you machine it automatically turns the vac on and off when using the machine. It is a little pricey but will worth it. I highly recommend this vaccum.

Review of ClearVue 1800LH

Review of ClearVue 1800LH

2008 days ago by Padre | 35 comments »

I purchased a ClearVue cyclone 1800LH for my shop about two months ago. Had torn muscles in my shoulder, so put it up a month ago, had shoulder surgery, and finally got it wired and turned on for the first time today. First Impressions: The unit came complete, packaged extremely well. Everything labeled, wrapped, boxed, re-wrapped. I unpacked everything and nothing was dented, broken, scratched or otherwise in any condition but brand new. The system also came with a remote control and...

NEW VACUUM

NEW VACUUM

2162 days ago by John Gray | 5 comments »

I purchased this vacuum about a month ago and it has been used ALOT. If has become a favorite tool, it’s so handy to use with the long hose. I also purchased the Ridgid Hepa filter – Model VF6000 which is washable. Filters 99.97% of particles as small as .3 mirons. Now the shop is much cleaner because the 22’ hose lets me go directly to the tool instead of having to move the big and cumbersome Craftsman around the shop, the Craftsman is now dedicated to the table saw unt...

my dust collector

my dust collector

2166 days ago 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...

Steel City 1HP dust collector

Steel City 1HP dust collector

2185 days ago by kaferhaus | 8 comments »

Just bought this yesterday at the local Woodcraft (good folks here) With the exception of the the four bolts that hold the blower assy to the frame, assembly was rather uneventful. After assembly I immediately put the collector to use attached to my table saw and it seemed to work “ok”, not great. Even though I was using a zero clearance insert, a good amount of dust managed to escape from every nook and cranny from the cabinet. The collection only seems to be marginally b...

Dust Deputy

Dust Deputy

My review is of Oneida’s Dust Deputy. http://www.dustdeputy.com/ I’ve had this addition to my shop vac for a little over a year and it is performing very well. Order/Assembly:I ordered mine online directly from Oneida and it came, unassembled, in a very short amount of time. Ordering was fast and easy. Assembly was quick but did involve silicon sealant. This is placed between the lower canister and the upper cone to create an air tight seal between the parts. It took about 15 min...
