Well I bought one thinking this is great for only $149. No! its worked for about 8 mins and stoped, motor will hum and then pop my 20 amp braker. looked inside and the fan move`s freely. Called Harbor Fright up and I am going to exchange it , but if any problems ill get my money back. The reviews where good I hope it was only a bad one,”ill see”. Also I bought a new sanding belt 6/48 that I need to return, crack along seem. it`s only a 35 min drive.

Woodcraft Dust Collector Remote Control

Woodcraft Dust Collector Remote Control

07-15-2011 05:47 AM by newTim | 14 comments »

I’ve seen these things in the local Woodcraft for many months and finally bought one when it recently went on sale. Many folks have been ‘hotrod-ding’ their dust collectors, especially the Harbor Freight. I’m happy to report this is working great. Just plug it in to the wall and plug the collector in to it. The HF is supposed to be a 2HP motor, but it is still 110V, so I was reluctant to buy this thinking it would be overpowered. Not true. I wish I had bought thi...

DeWalt DC515B 18V Cordless 1/2 Gallon Wet / Dry Vacuum

DeWalt DC515B 18V Cordless 1/2 Gallon Wet / Dry Vacuum

Thought I’d post a review for this thing since I didn’t see one here. Let me start out by saying, I love it! I usually don’t get too passionate over my tools but this thing has met and exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. First a little history on how I came to buy it. I have been using B&D DustBusters around the house for years, was on my second one at the time I bought this. The problems with these DustBusters is that the batteries are not readily replaceab...

Now's the time to get a dust collector!

Now's the time to get a dust collector!

This collector has been reviewed several times here so I won’t go into to much of the details. The reason i am reviewing it now is because I got the latest issue of “Wood” magazine and there’s a coupon in it for this collector. You can get it with that coupon for just $150 (that’s $100 off the regular price). And it is every bit as good as the VASTLY more expensive Jet and Grizzly models with similar specs. Here’s why I love this collector… 1. P...

Ridgid Shop Vacs

Ridgid Shop Vacs

04-02-2011 03:08 AM by kosta | 12 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on ridgid shop vacs. I have been using ridgid shop vacs for about 2 years. I have the ridgid 9 gallon 3 hp shop vac and the ridgid 12 gallon 5.5 hp shop vac. I use the 12 gallon shop vac which has a 2-1/2 in hose to collect the dust from my tablesaw. I use the 9 gallon shop vac which has a 1-7/8 in hose to collect the dust from my miter saw and sanders. The 12 gallon is one of the largest shop vacs you can buy and its a pretty nice shop vac. I use...

Ridgid 16 gallon Shop Vacuum

Ridgid 16 gallon Shop Vacuum

03-11-2011 03:44 AM by kansas | 6 comments »

I just purchased this Ridgid 16 gallon Wet/Dry Vac. The model is a WD 1851 and I got it at Home Depot for $160. I’m upgrading (I hope) from an older ShopVac I had that’s at death’s door. This machine seems very nice so far. Nice power cord length and cord seems to stay cool when running. The switch is right up front and very easy to operate. The included hose and accessories aren’t bad either. The motor is rated for 12 amps but you won’t find that on the packagin...

best deal for a remote dust collector switch

best deal for a remote dust collector switch

03-09-2011 02:39 AM by drewnahant | 17 comments »

I was going to buy a longranger for my dust collector, but I decided to look around for alternatives, and I found this. four outlet switches with two remotes for half the price of a single longranger, how could I go wrong? The two big green outlets are rated for 15 Amps, and the two white ones are only rated for 10 Amps. my 1hp dust collector is rated at 6 Amps, so I tried one of white ones, and the startup surge popped an internal fuse, I shorted the fuse, and it works fine, doesnt seem t...

"Bucket Head" Vacuum

"Bucket Head" Vacuum

02-13-2011 09:57 PM by FJPetruso | 5 comments »

I found this Bucket Head Vacuum on display at Home Depot a while back & decided to give it a try. Heck… It’s only 20 bucks & uses an ordinary 5 gallon plastic bucket for collection of dust & chips. (I just happen to have acquired a couple of plastic buckets that have the same rim dimensions but hold about 7-1/2 gsllons & are several inches taller.) There’s no doubt that it’s a cheap vacuum but it works well. The filter is a simple pouch over the suc...

2 hp dust collector

2 hp dust collector

02-04-2011 01:25 AM by tchaser | 18 comments »

I recently purchased a 2 hp dust collector from harbor freight and found,that for the money, it is a very good tool. Assembly was pretty straight forward and took about 2 hours.Yyou should keep a sense of humor when doing that as the instructions are pretty vague and not very accurate as far as descriptions. I bought this to replace a jet DC-650 and it does have considerable more suction pressure and moves a lot more air. All though not as much as the delta counter part which was 3 times the...
