grngate automatic blast gates for dust collectors

04-09-2014 07:24 PM by bonesbr549 | 5 comments »

First let me start by saying I have been looking for a product like this for a long time. Being a computer geek by trade, had been researching a circuit build with sensor to do this very thing. Looking at everything from car door window actuators as the lift mechanism to pneumatic actuators. Costs no matter the option was just to high to justify. I also looked at echogate, but again too much $$. Then one day doing a google search hoping to find more info for my own build, I came acro...

Good Value for a Downdraft Sanding table

Good Value for a Downdraft Sanding table

04-02-2014 04:25 PM by tme4tls | 3 comments »

Last year I had a real problem breathing when I had to do prolonged periods of sanding during the winter months with the shop closed up tight to retain heat. I first though about getting a Trend Airshield but the weight sitting on top of my head during use wasn’t very comfortable so I started thinking seriously about a downdraft table. I wanted the Denray brand but the prices were more than I could afford and looked at the Grizzly models. Grizzlys pricing was more affordable and th...

Harbor Freight DC Mod

Harbor Freight DC Mod

04-01-2014 03:48 PM by Ajs73 | 10 comments »

Hi, First time posting,Long time reader I just finished my HF DC mod. When I first added a seperator with Theinbaffle I noticed a big drop in suction. Once I eliminated all bends and flex hosethe collector seem like I gained all suction back. (Plus saved a lot of room) CollectorIs hung off shelf and only thing touching the floor is seperator can. Seems Awesome. I would like to add a wynn filter at somepoint when I have $$$$. (I can’t see how any more air could flow through t...

SawStop Overarm Dust Collection - worth it, but flawed connection

SawStop Overarm Dust Collection - worth it, but flawed connection

03-16-2014 03:31 PM by Kenyon94 | 10 comments »

Someone asked me a follow-up question on my review of my SawStop 3HP PCS, and I thought it would be worth it to answer it in a standalone review for others to see. I’d noted in my review that I had to buy a different connection for the overarm dust collection assembly, which is one of the optional accessories with the SawStop table saws. In general, I really like the extra dust collection capabilities of this accessory – for most cuts, there’s just no dust left over on th...

Very good DC at very affordable price

Very good DC at very affordable price

02-28-2014 05:22 AM by Jesse | 5 comments »

I have been running this dust collector for several months now and have had no issues. The suction is really good, I can have several ports open at one time with no problems. At under $700 it is the same price as the Powermatic 1.75HP machine but with more power and more capacity, I know because I own both machines. The Grizzly is 3HP and has a 7 inch inlet. I don’t like the 7 inch because it is tough to find all the piping for that size but after searching the home improvement stor...

Excellent Custom-sized Washable Air Filter for Shop

Excellent Custom-sized Washable Air Filter for Shop

02-19-2014 03:17 AM by BigRedKnothead | 18 comments »

I have a Jet AFS-400 Air Filter mounted on the ceiling in my shop. I like having it, but I was frustrated with the stock pleated filters. The old filters didn’t hold up well, and they were to expensive to replace often. I’ve seen that Rockler sells a washable electrostatic filter…..but not for my model. So, I hit the internet and found this place: Air Filters Inc out of Nevada. They’ve got a nice website. I priced out the size I needed and was happy to find i...

My Super Dust Deputy Review

My Super Dust Deputy Review

02-11-2014 02:52 AM by Garth | 2 comments »

I upgraded my shopvac & Dust Deputy to a Souped up Harbor Freight Dust Collector. With that, I got the Super Duputy. Attached are some pictures that show how much dust was collected in the bin by the cyclone and how little dust got into the bag of the dust collector. Needless to say, I think the pictures pretty much tell the story of how well it worked. More information on the system is here.

Plastic Super Dust deputy

Plastic Super Dust deputy

01-31-2014 01:14 AM by Alan72 | 6 comments »

I replaced my rockler dust seperator with the Super Dust Deputy. I just finished setting it up to what I think is the most efficent way. I had it for over a month and I couldn’t figure away to set it up, I ended up seperating the Dust collector motor and hanging it from the wall over the 6” dust port of the SDD. I ordered a 5” hose from Penn State cut it in half ran one from the SDD to my main PVC ducting and the other to the dust collector. I’m using a HF dust collec...

Super Dust Deputy cfm loss

Super Dust Deputy cfm loss

01-29-2014 11:40 PM by secretgarden | 8 comments »

I have a Jet 1200, a 2 hp with a 12 inch impeller attached to a Super Dust Deputy (SDD) sitting on top of a 55 metal drum. I used a Alnor anemometer Model RVA+ to measure the velocity and calculated the cfm at different duct set ups and found no meaningful loss of cfm. Measurements as follows; 1. Measured at the 6 inch intake with a cheap metal 90 degree elbow (after removing the two 4 ” port) measured velocity at 5700 fpm/cfm 1114 2. same as above but with 3 cheap 6 ”...

Excellent option for portable dust collection

Excellent option for portable dust collection

12-24-2013 07:52 PM by lumberjoe | 7 comments »

Like many, I don’t have the space or power requirements for a large dust collector. I need something small that doesn’t draw a lot of power (I only have 30 amps available). This little unit fits the bill. I have my tools aranged so everything that needs a proper 4” dust collector is in close proximity, and I have a quick connect on the hose. The good: This unit is quiet compared to a shop vac and has plenty of power when connected to one tool at a time. It has no troub...
