Remote Control

Need a remote power switch for your dust collector or other accessory? While all of my tools are mounted on mobile bases, I got tired of having to move things aound to get to the dust collector power switch. My DC is a cheapo from Harbor Freight, so it didn’t come with a remote. A quick perusal of the box stores online found this at Wally World. Rated at 13A it’s enough for my small DC and is rated for outdoor use, so water and humidity aren’t an issue. The receiver just plu...

Blast gate problems

Blast gate problems

03-10-2013 08:05 PM by bear2 | 8 comments »

I recently purchased two 2 ½ inch blast gates from Rockler so that I could split my tablesaw from my floor vacuum. After installation I found that with one gate opened and one gate closed my vacuuming power was reduced by more than half. The gates leaked significantly in either the closed or opened position and rendered the system useless.For a small system the small gates are of little value, for a larger more powerful system larger gates may work.

Good little dust collector.

Good little dust collector.

I was looking for a dust collector for the Ridgid R4512 table saw I just purchased. My previous saw wasn’t set up for any dust collection, so I have been fighting table saw dust for years. Don’t laugh too hard yet, because I also purchased a DELTA 50-760 to actually do my dust collection with. I saw this little PSI DC660P when I was doing my online shopping, and decided to pick one of these up. Online shopping can be dangerous to the budget. The PSI unit arived first, so ...

Dust Collection Upgrade

Dust Collection Upgrade

02-05-2013 07:12 PM by TheDane | 20 comments »

I have wanted a two-stage dust collection system for some time, so decided to take the leap and order an Oneida Super Dust Deputy. The Super Dust Deputy (SDD) was well packed and everything (SDD, installation bolts, foam gasket, and the 5”-to-4” and 6”-to-4” reducers) was packed in a single box surrounded by plastic and foam. Because of the lid I opted for, I substituted the bolts Oneida provided with 1/4” x 20 tpi x 2 1/2” that I had on hand in the shop...

Grizzly Strikes Again

Grizzly Strikes Again

01-31-2013 02:35 AM by tme4tls | 29 comments »

I have been having trouble breathing this winter while the shop has had the doors and windows closed. Normally, two large drum fans keep a good volume of air going in and out which keeps the dust down. Works well for the warmer months but in the colder months when I have the heat on the dust gets to be a bit much. I thought about an air filter but never got around to ordering one. So, I decided to order a Grizzly G9965 air filter for the shop since they claimed it would change the air in a...

New Dust Collection System  Grizzly 548, East Caroga Cyclone

New Dust Collection System Grizzly 548, East Caroga Cyclone

01-26-2013 05:44 PM by Bob A in NJ | 12 comments »

Here’s my new DC system and includes a Grizzly G0548Z, East Carago Cyclone, Penn State Remote and Blastco Pipes, gates and elbows. System works well, took a few weekends to get it all together. Work flow: Had to install new 220 breaker in the main panel.Needed new wiring and 220 remote contol from Penn State Industries. The remote works very well, no issues. I tape magnets to the remote and attach it to the cyclone or lathe most of the time. The 548 DC itself is very nice...

Great so far!

Great so far!

I just purchased one of these units last week. I haven’t mounted it to the ceiling yet, but I have running at table height for now just to check it out. I had been planning to build my own filter like this, but for the price it was hard to pass up. Building a similar unit from scratch would probably cost close to the same plus the time to round up the components and assemble it. I was pleased with how quiet the unit was for the amount of air it was moving. I have only used it duri...

Well another year has come and gone and I must have been a real good boy this year. Look what Santa brought me! It arrived in 2 boxes early November and sat in my garage until I was allowed to open it on Christmas Day. What a torture and a display in self control that was. I was drooling like a rabid dog, wanting to tear into it and hook it up etc. but my wife said I had to wait till Santa arrived. I still can’ figure that one out. Why would Santa drop off my present in early November j...

DeWalt Dust Extracting Vacuum.....As good as Festool?

DeWalt Dust Extracting Vacuum.....As good as Festool?

12-20-2012 04:04 PM by Cory | 37 comments »

I bought this vacuum for $220 from Amazon a week or so ago to replace a 6 year old Craftsman shop vac. I was drawn to this one because of the auto-on switch and the suction adjustment feature. Those are two items I had been wanting after demoing a Fein and Festool vac. At about half the price of those vacuums, this one performs equally well. There are a few minor negatives, but my experience has been overwhelmingly positive. Positives:-Excellent suction-variable speed/suction power is ...
