I picked up a few items on Crags list the other day. I saw an ad for a JET, 3 HP duel bag dust collector so I went out to look at it but first I tried to look it up on the internet but soon realized it is no longer made a duel bag 3 HP (or so I think) So here it is cleand up and the only parts I need are the 2 straps that hold the top bags to the unit while its running. He wanted $100.00 so I gave him what he asked.

After we go the dust collector loaded in my truck I asked what else he had and he showed me a router table (home made) and had about 5 routers piled under it and 3 mounted . He said “Hey you may need this” It was a Biesemeyer T-Slot, that’s what it says on the top and sides. It seems Biesemeyer does not make this any more as well so I don’t know what the value is but I felt it was worth $50.00 so thats what I paid

He had about 5 pipe clamps – 4’ long and I got the for $20.00 so all and all I feel I go a good deal and may call him to see what he wants for the routers and go back for the whole lot.

Nice, and I’d definitely go back for the routers.

Thanks, I got it cleaned up and changed the photo to the one I actually have. Any ideas where to get bags and straps? I spent about $25.00 on it so far for new and better wheels to roll around.

I like your approach. My fiance’ gets on me for a similar one. If a guy on CL has an asking price, I look at the item, consider it worth it, then I pay the man his asking. If I think it’s high up front, I’ll say so. If there’s damage and I want to reduce my buying price, I will.

I guess my point is, there’s nothing wrong with just paying a fella what he’s asking.

It’s nice that he was asking so little in this case!

Stick a couple of Wynn canisters on those separator rings, and you have a great DC right there… As old as that is, I doubt those bags filter better than 20 microns…

I may place it outside the shop in an enclosure.
I am hoping to get into a 1400 sq. ft building on 9/1.
I will run a 4” vacuum line through the wall to each machine off “Y” ports with blast fences just inside the building or at each machine.
I’m looking for a remote control I can mount on the inside wall where the unit is.

dbhost I think they are 30 micron bags. Your right I will look into the Wynn canisters If I can afford them I will get them. I think I may have to go with 8” lines and 6” at the machines. The farthest machine is 25’ away.

Have your say...
