Super Dust Deputy cfm loss

Super Dust Deputy cfm loss

01-29-2014 05:40 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 01:52 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...

Quick Review of a Great Little Cyclone!

Quick Review of a Great Little Cyclone!

11-26-2013 04:09 PM by WoodJitsu | 9 comments »

Like every other woodworker, I owned a Habor Freight 2HP dust collector. It served me well in its stock form, but I knew it was leaving lots of fines floating around my small shop and I needed to either upgrade it or buy something new. I looked at all the options with the filters, baffles, etc, but I came to the conclusion that for a few extra bucks (ok, more than a few) I could really upgrade. So I took the plunge and bought the Grizzly cyclone. My concern was the the CFM, I’ll add...

Better when attached to the shopVac then a 5 gallon bucket

Better when attached to the shopVac then a 5 gallon bucket

10-31-2013 03:13 PM by Bill1974 | 4 comments »

I have had this not for a few month, and it is much nicer to empty this then the shop vac. I am using a Ridgid 6.5hp shop vac with this. It work well, but not as well as I thought it would. Sealing the air leaks in the container seem to help but there was nothing in the included instruction that said this. I got this in the kit form that came with a could of 5 gallon buckets, a short section of hose to connect it the shopvac (its a really nice quality), and the hardware to attach it to ...

Dust collector, Harbor Freight 2 HP, model 97869

Dust collector, Harbor Freight 2 HP, model 97869

I am going to post this comment, or something similar to it, elsewhere on this site to get the best chance of feedback. I am a 70-year-old retired worker but am now also a working artist who does wall-hanging collages made from enameled or stained wood pieces. I have items in a half-dozen galleries and outlets in this town and another town close by, and the income from the projects helps to supplement my retirement income. It also helps to keep my wife from harping about me needing to get ...

An obvious improvement over my Shop-Vac

An obvious improvement over my Shop-Vac

10-04-2013 06:49 PM by Kobra | 10 comments »

After using my shop-vac as my dust collector for several months, I finally broke down and purchased a real dust collector. Let’s be honest, using a shop-vac for a dust collection system is akin to using a weed trimmer to mow your lawn. Requirements – 1) I wanted a system with a relatively small footprint. Like most DIYers, lack of space is enemy #1. 2) Spend no more than $400. I couldn’t justify spending more money when woodworking is a hobby. 3) CFM greater than...

Was nice till it sucked up to much concrete dust

Was nice till it sucked up to much concrete dust

09-30-2013 12:44 PM by Bill1974 | 8 comments »

The first picture is just after it died a small fiery death. The second pic is from lowes website, the canister is not really that tall is a more squat. Purchased this in the summer of 2008 and it lasted till September of 2013. I purchased a Ridgid WD1851 to replace it, after it died. I used it for house renovations and some dust collection. It had seen a good amount of drywall dust and concrete dust (which is what lead to its demise). The bushing (not bearing) wore and the motor shaf...

Pleasantly surprised

Pleasantly surprised

09-13-2013 01:26 PM by mummykicks | 5 comments »

Very pleased with this. I get zero dust below the table now, my router runs cooler (as do my bits), and when used with something like the incra master fence I’m dust free when doing anything that has the bit near the fence. Got mine on amazon for $40. There is a plastic sheet that has velcro on it that the cup attaches to. I just cut it out to fit around my lift and double stick taped it to my router plate. Has worked fine.I don’t ever remove my router from the table, so I canR...

dustcutter II dust collection system paired up with ridgid TS3650

dustcutter II dust collection system paired up with ridgid TS3650

09-04-2013 10:44 AM by yrob | 3 comments »

I have a small shop and use a Ridgid TS3650 contractor style table saw. Dust collection has always been a problem. I have tried enclosing the saw with hardboard pieces in the past but this makes it impossible to tilt your blade as the motor sticks out. I recentlly bought this product, the Dustcutter II from Woodcraft. It is basically a dust bag shaped like a funnel with a 2 1/4” port at the end. It attaches to the table saw from the inside by velcro. The installation guide say...
