Update: At christmas time I upgraded to a 2 micron filter bag. I noticed a big difference and I am very happy now. Because of the upgrade I decided to edit my review. With the 2 micron bag it is exactly the same as the 10-105M model, so I can pretty much call it that one now. in conclusion, I now rate it 5 stars. I have been woodworking since grade five and always had a big problem with dust in the shop. I started reading up on dust collectors and got very interested in them. just this yea...

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

When I decided to move my small woodworking operation indoors, I knew I would need some type of dust collection system. My projects are small – mostly wooden rings and the occasional ring box or other small item, but I still didn’t want even a small amount of fine dust particles floating around in our house. The good thing for me was I knew I wouldn’t require a full-fledged, expensive unit. After a bit of research (thanks to the guys in the LJ forums for suggestions!) I...

I ordered a steel city 1 1/2 hp dc from woodcraft on mar 6 as a birthday present to myself….. lol. I didn’t come for two months. my local woodcraft store was more than helpful and set me home with the jds 1 1/2 hp dc. I love it. It has a one micron bag. removing the dust bag is way easier than the jet dc. My dust collection is set up for one tool at a time. I have a small weekend/weekday night shop. I’m the only one using it. The collector has stood up very well all...

I have a small garage shop. For some reason my wife insists on parking right in the middle of it! This leaves me needing everything to be compact and mobile. I have no room for dust collection but learned right away after starting this hobby that dust collection is not an option, its a necessity. My shop vac wasn’t going to last long with a chronically clogged filter. Thankfully I found these guys. I bought the Mini CV06. I hooked it up to my shop vac. I lived happily ever after...

Shop Air Cleaner

Shop Air Cleaner

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 ...

Powermatic 1300 Dust Collector

Powermatic 1300 Dust Collector

Introduction For years I have use a Delta AP300 3/4 HP dust collector as my tool of choice for collecting dust. I largely bought this collector based solely on price. At times it has surprised me with its efficiency but it did little about controlling the fine dust created by the table saw and sanding operations. Plus it has a very limited capacity. With an idea towards controlling the fine dust I recently received a Powermatic 1300. The dust collector and air cleaner were receive...

Installation Assembly of a tool could not have been simpler. The only real assembly consisted of attaching 4 anchor eye bolts to the tool’s cabinet. I chose to mount it to the ceiling in order to control fine dust within the shop. This is definately a two person job since the assembled cabinet weighs about 70 pounds. The unit has three fan speeds and can be set for either continuous operation or set via a timer for 1 to 4 hours. Performance The cleaner will remove 99 percen...

I was searching for a portable (one machine at a time) dust collector for my basement shop. After much research and anguish I settled on the Oneida Air Systems Mini Gorilla. Oneida cut the price to $795.00 and threw in a plastic Dust Deputy DIY cyclone. They also cut the price on the remote control upgrade to $30. I was vacillating between the Jet DC-1100 CK (Canister Filter) and the Mini Gorilla. The Jet had the higher CFM, but I wondered how long would I have 1100 CFM, was the filter g...

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

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

03-12-2009 11:01 PM 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...

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...
