« Part 6: Who Said These Aren't Woodworking Tools?! Part 7 of Better Shop Series series Part 8: Do This Small Shop Collection Dust UPGRADE »

Dust collection is super important in any woodshop. And I recently upgraded my smaller dust collection system. After getting it set up, I compared it’s performance to what I was using prior, a 14 gallon drum, a 5 gallon bucket, and a shop vac. Let me tell you, some of the results may shock you.

Essentially, we are looking for a combination of hoses, vacuums, and cyclones that will most efficiently remove dust. In other words, which one will lose the least amount of CFM. I had high hopes for the one contender and definitely wasn’t disappointed.

Spoiler Alert: American-made definitely makes a huge difference!

This looks like click bait for woodworkers to go to your youtube channel. Post the results sowe can read them and include the video if someone wants to watch it.

Earl, this is tagged as a video post because it is a video post.

I don’t see anything wrong with him posting a link to his video (which is very informative). Also, don’t dictate to people how to share their findings. Who the F are you to demand written results?

Personally, I do not care for posts where you have to watch a video and then dig thru it to find results. But, that is my preference only and people can post any way they like.

I hate vane anemometers and do not trust their results when used like in the video. They are great for large ducts but not at the end of a hose. It is good to see people try to measure performance but need a better measurement method.

Have your say...
