Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turo Vacuum

Fein 9-20-24 Mini Turo Vacuum

01-24-2009 04:32 AM 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

01-23-2009 05:02 AM 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

08-21-2008 07:09 PM 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

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...

Steel City 1HP dust collector

Steel City 1HP dust collector

07-30-2008 01:03 AM 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...

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...

Since I had some encounters with turning and sanding toxic woods earlier this year I’ve been saving up for a dust collector. I turn wood on a Jet 1220 and don’t generate a ton of sawdust or sanding dust but enough to be a nuisance. The shop vac can’t keep up and is quiet noisy. I have experience with some 1.5hp Jet and Delta models but they were very bigger and noisier than I was looking for. Amazon currently has Delta AP-400’s on sale for $138 shipped but I would b...

Delta dust collection, 2nd stage.

Delta dust collection, 2nd stage.

06-12-2008 10:51 PM by rtb | 8 comments »

Since my comment on the origional entry I have received requests to show and explain my hookup for cyclone type lid and can. pic.1 shows the DC conected to the planer and the joiner. Each has a seperate blast gate. Since they operate in opisite directions the conecting hoses are never in they way. To me the key is the light gray hose. its very stiff and high quality. It also comes with the DC. Since the direction of the intake is changeable, in this type of configuration ‘up’ is...

Delta 50-760 best dust collector of its class

Delta 50-760 best dust collector of its class

06-11-2008 08:24 AM by Woodshopfreak | 11 comments »

Wow, is all I have to say. This was a part graduation part birthday present and I have to say I love this thing. It has made my woodworking experience a whole lot better. I bought about fifty feet of PVC and ran it along all the walls in my shop connecting it to my jointer, table saw, bandsaw, router table, and put in a handy floor sweep. I even put in a shop vac port that can hook right up to a shop vac hose and I can use it for my miter saw or for sanding or routing. I installed blast gates...

New Dust Collection System Just installed

New Dust Collection System Just installed

04-28-2008 04:52 AM by bbqking | 21 comments »

This is one of the most efficient dust collectors I have run across in quite some time. The manufacturers have managed to keep the noise levels down to almost unbelievable readings and kept electric costs down to nearly nothing. However, I have been notified that refrigeration costs have increased in some workshops. I am impressed as to how these items work together as a whole, with the Harper bench brush raking dust onto the floor so that the Publix broom can pull the sawdust away from prob...
