Review of Bizarre Exercise Equipment

Review of Bizarre Exercise Equipment

02-09-2016 07:02 PM by Kelly | 3 comments »

This shouldn’t be a review of a piece of exercise equipment, its very nature, during use, requires me to treat it as such, in order to get across its behavior characteristics in the shop. I have several four inch flex hoses in my shop. Only this one returns to its original, retracted form. It is probable this will be the only one my shop will ever see, even if it fails and has to be replaced. PRO: Because it retracts to its original length, I don’t have to cut it for runs, t...

Powerful Dust Collection with Some Work

Powerful Dust Collection with Some Work

01-30-2016 06:24 AM by Severian | 7 comments »

I installed a CV 1800 system a few months ago in my shop. I’m just a hobbyist, not a pro by any stretch, but I’m blessed to be able to own some nice tools. The CV takes a good amount of work to assemble and get the system running—it’s far from turnkey—but I rather enjoyed the process. The instructions were reasonably clear, and you can find YouTube videos too. The CV support was outstanding when I had questions and when one part needed to be replaced due to s...

3.5 HP Pennstate DC upgrade.

3.5 HP Pennstate DC upgrade.

01-08-2016 04:01 PM by mike1950 | 8 comments »

Have not been around for a while- Life and a shop remodel has stopped woodworking for a while. Getting close to being fully operational again. Needed a DC upgrade so I purchased this unit slightly used. Most pipe and fittings had not been installed and package had most of what I needed. Also included -switched gates- so when gate is opened DC is turned on. I have not wired gates yet nor finished ductwork-waiting on a few parts- but what I have finished I do like. Equipped with muffler DC is n...

CV 1800 Bundle Review

CV 1800 Bundle Review

01-05-2016 05:24 AM by JBrow | 15 comments »

My Requirements and Purchase Decision. I used a ½ hp dust collector with an awful filter bag for about 10 years before I outfitted it with a shop made cyclone from the “ShopNotes” design in 1998. I used that machine up until August 2015, when I purchased the Clearvue CV 1800 cyclone bundle. It was a shop upgrade long overdue, but probably like many woodworkers, I would rather spend money on wood cutting tools than on a vacuum cleaner. My decision to upgrade dust collection occurred earl...

Laguna 2hp Cyclone Dust Collector - Unboxing & Assy

Laguna 2hp Cyclone Dust Collector - Unboxing & Assy

11-01-2015 02:16 AM by TheDane | 7 comments »

This is an initial (unboxing & assembly) review … I’ll update after the machine has been in service for a few months. The machine arrived at the local Woodcraft store on a pallet, and weighed in at 106 KG (a little over 233 pounds). We got the shipping container ( 45” x 26” x 38”) to fit into the cargo bay of my Jeep Liberty with a little finagling (and a few well-chosen words). I have a pneumatic table and a very patient wife that were invaluable in unloading it in my g...

Just finished hanging it....

Just finished hanging it....

10-08-2015 01:19 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 6 comments »

Well my new Grizzly G5072 air filter showed up today and I just finished hanging it.Packaging was in real good shape and the unit itself seems really solid so does the overall quality.I was using a Performax from Menards, but it just was not cutting it. I still had a lot of dust throughout my shop (2 car garage).With the Grizzly I should have a turnover rate of about 20/hr vs the 7/hr with the Performax. The Grizzly is really quite and it is definitely moving a whole bunch of air. You can ...

Laguna Tools Laguna Mobile Cyclone 1.5 HP Dust Collector

Laguna Tools Laguna Mobile Cyclone 1.5 HP Dust Collector

08-07-2015 08:39 PM by Desert Woodworker | 2 comments »

I am a fan of Laguna tools. I called my salesman and it was delivered 7days later. Everything was clean, well painted, and it assembled OK. I was going to convert a HF 2hp, add a Dust Deputy and have to rig a system. Cost of Laguna shipped without the filter $825 vs. build your own $500 plus my time. This has been a good decision for me and I highly recommend this unit for a shop that doesn’t have an extra 220 service. This unit runs on a 20 amp 110service. The motor is made in Taiwan ...

HQRP washable Shopvac replacement filters

HQRP washable Shopvac replacement filters

07-27-2015 05:03 PM by dschlic1 | 5 comments »

I purchased four of these filters about two years ago. Most of the OEM filters would not stand up and were difficult to clean. These are excellent filters, easy to clean (wash them off with water) and extremely durable. After two years of use I have yet to have one fail. These filters are rater H12 or in the newer ratings E12. Not clean room standards but more than good enough for a shop vacuum. The only down side is that they do not come with the cover that goes on the end of the filter and ...

Fantastic substitute for remote control dust collection

Fantastic substitute for remote control dust collection

07-17-2015 02:53 AM by Rayne | 10 comments »

This is my first review so hopefully this is decent. I have been looking for ways to remotely turn on my Dust Collector for a while now. After being snubbed a bit by PSI for their remote I went on a hunt for a new solution that wouldn’t cost me a ton of money and was less likely to fail. After hunting for a while, I ran across this little gem. It’s a wireless receptacle that can be turned on or off with a remote (only the bottom receptacle; top is always on). Since you’...

General Internationl cyclone dust collector

General Internationl cyclone dust collector

Used my cyclone dust collector today for the first time and does that sucker ever suck the shavings. I reduced the 6” dust outlet to 4” and had no issues at all except the noise, oh well it does say hearing protection required.
