Great cyclonic dust separator

Great cyclonic dust separator

05-29-2012 02:49 AM by Alexandre | 10 comments »

The dust deputy is a great dust separator for my Ridgid shop vac.I gave it 4 stars out of 5 because for a few reasons:1. It’s really unbalanced without a cart when you move it2. Its pretty awkward moving it unless you build a cart.3. Static electricity during dry times is a pain and a hassle as some dust gets in because it tends to stick to the cyclone.4. The container fills up quickly, probably a 35 gal drum would be nice.5. The price is pretty high for a piece of moulded plastic and 2...

Grizzly GO703P  The right Dust Collector for my shop

Grizzly GO703P The right Dust Collector for my shop

05-15-2012 02:50 AM by Dewshan | 12 comments »

After many years of building projects without good dust collection I decided it was time to get serious about controlling the dust in my shop. Besides the obvious health issues it is also not much fun to be covered in dust after a long day of woodworking. I also recently upgraded my table saw to a JET hybrid that has a dust port and I was feeling a little guilty about running the saw without one. My shop is a 2 car garage that I also use to work on cars so I wanted a DC that could be mo...

Wynn Environmental Filters for the Jet AFS 1000B Filter system

Wynn Environmental Filters for the Jet AFS 1000B Filter system

05-12-2012 01:02 PM by bluejazz | 13 comments »

I recently purchased the Jet AFS 1000B. I was amazed at how quickly the filter was clogged up, thinking one the one hand this might get pretty expensive, but also thinking on the other hand, I am glad I didn’t breathe all that. I am very happy with this filtering system. I cannot quantify how well it cleans the air, but visibly pulls a lot of stuff out of the air. But this review is for the Wynn Environmental replacement outer filters. Replacement outer filters from Jet are upwar...

Super Dust Deputy Add on for 4" DC systems

Super Dust Deputy Add on for 4" DC systems

05-06-2012 01:54 AM by TechRedneck | 12 comments »

While researching this product, I noticed that there was not a review on LJ’s for this specific model of cyclone. I have a smaller ClearVue Mini and absolutely love it, however there were few choices on the market for cyclones specifically made for the majority of small DC systems out there in the 1-2 HP range. I think that Oneida has something here for that niche market. In fact, I am surprised yet pleased that they made one of these available because it can directly compete with ...

Keen Dust Router Review.  Above and below table dust collection

Keen Dust Router Review. Above and below table dust collection

03-21-2012 12:50 AM by ardbeg | 12 comments »

This is a review for the Keen Products Company’s “Dust Router” http://www.keen-products.com/ This simple device really works wonders. I have a Bench Dog Cast Iron wing extension router table (the pic above is not my set up) and thought I was getting decent chip collection through the fence but this $40 gizmo makes DC’ing at the router table an art. DescriptionThe kit comes with:-a sheet of plastic that you need to attach between your router and plate. Easy enou...

G0548Z - 2HP Canister Dust Collector

G0548Z - 2HP Canister Dust Collector

03-12-2012 02:58 PM by Mainiac Matt | 15 comments »

Background...I’ve been reading up on and conspiring to get DC into a working shop for what seems like ages. And though I’ve always wanted to set up a two stage cyclone system, when it came right down to it, I didn’t have the space or the money. So turning my sights to single stage units, I flagged the G0548Z as my pick. Fast forward to January, when I found that the price had gone up in the 2012 catalog, but that the holiday sale of $375 was still good for a few more days...

Works Great!

Okay so i built myself a cabinet for my miter saw and wanted some type of dust collection, granted there can only be so much when it comes to a miter saw but anyways i put a small vac inside the cabinet and needed a way to turn it on and off without opening everything up flipping the switch ect. Found this little guy it was on sale at the time for $20. Thought i would give it a try and it works great! i leave the switch on my shop vac to on and when i pull the power switch on my saw the vac c...

Not a very good value

Not a very good value

02-06-2012 01:32 AM by MoshupTrail | 32 comments »

I picked this up on sale from Rockler recently and put it together this weekend. First off, the box it comes in is very small. In fact, it looks tiny next to my 16 gal Ridgid vac. The Vortex comes in two halves allowing it to nest inside the carton. Clever packing. I was afraid it might leak at the joint, but it proved to be a nice tight fit. Assembly: Not hard at all. The directions are clear and well written, but… There are two connectors for the intake and out...

It works, and the price is right

It works, and the price is right

Not a whole lot to say about these remote switches. I base my opinion on the functionality and the price, and this one does well in both areas. It’s pretty simple – you plug the base unit into the wall and plug your DC into the base unit, then when you want to turn the DC on or off you press the button on the remote control. Took about 20 seconds to install it, and it worked right away, no settings to mess around with or anything like that. Very handy when you have a smaller...
