Topic tags/keywords: dust collection

Having installed the clear ducting… it is now time to connect to the individual pieces of equipment..
6 inch hose from the Dusty to the Cyclone…the intake is 5 inch and reduced down to 4 inch for the ducting..

You can see in this pic the DC, the dust deputy cyclone, jointer and bandsaw… the flex tube connecting the duct to the machines is also clear..and each drop down has a blast gate installed… to isolate the machines from the system until needed.
I had a comment regarding a T junction leading to the over head ducting…

I do not consider this a problem as the T is in fact coming in from the top and not trying to draw dust up…

Foreground shows part of the new cabinet saw.. the Jet 16/32 is hooked up and working great.. I have yet to build a cabinet for the INCRA router table but have made provision for dust connection under the cabinet and also for the wonderfence built in dust port..[ on order from Graeme at PWS.]

A quick shot of the TWC… I will be blogging separately about this connection… I feel it requires its own post…
As does the new dust hood I made for the SCMS… so stay tuned..

Edit… for those who commented on the last post about the lack of empty beer bottles… you all missed the one on the bench behind the tablesaw in the last pic…

Wow that’s going to make a big difference Larry. I think all this destroys that old lazy Larry idea :))

It looks like you are set for dust collection.

I think I see blast gates by the 2 Tees up in the middle. If that’s the case it’s time to build a stool.

Alright you sneaky imposter, what have you done to my friend Lazy Larry?
This shop is entirely too clean.
(If you did the world class work we’ve all come to expect with your old set up, I can’t even imagine what you will be able to do now!)
very nice job Larry!

I don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade, and maybe I am not seeing it correctly, but it looks like you have a tee coming off the main trunk and going overhead. I know you don’t see this tee as a problem since the dust is moving down at this point. I don’t really agree, but this is okay. The tee is certainly not a deal breaker. Then what I think I am seeing in the third photo is the other side of the shop; where the overhead duct was coming from. In this photo the overhead duct is connected to another trunk line with a wye connector. But, dust could be coming from either direction in this trunk. This wye would have been better to have been a tee if this is the case. Also, the dust from the drum sander connects to this trunk with a wye, also pointed in the wrong direction. Am I mis-interpreting what is going on here?

Well, a really nice shop anyway. Looks like you got all the bases covered and a nice dust collector system (that may need a couple of minor adjustments).

That’s a very smart system Larry,top notch I’d expect nothing less from you (even though it took a while to get round to it) I should really make time to do the same one day.
Best

Larry, You can come take care of my shop now. You would think with all the nice tools I have, I would get around to dust collection.

Looking really good. Thanks
