Manifold, improved

03-22-2020 09:17 PM by MrLaughingbrook | 1 comment »

Back a while ago I built a dust collection manifold, https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/111874 I’ve hoping I’ve improved it: added a gate after the table saw branch on the main line six inch PVC all the way to the table saw sealed all joints with Xtreme-Tape It looks best in black and white.

Dust Collection & Health Risks from Wood Dust

10-20-2019 01:00 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

I recently had a health scare about my lungs – everything is ok now, but it reminded me again why respirators, vacuums, dust collectors, and air cleaners are so important. I don’t see enough of this type of information on YouTube to educate woodworkers, so I invested hours of time making a video that I hope will help fellow woodworkers be more aware and invest in protecting their health. If you find it useful, please share it… I feel it’s an important message for a...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #9: Other projects – Evolution of a Shop Vac cart

10-29-2018 05:46 PM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

And… I built a Dust Deputy based Shop Vac Cart. Like everyone I started with 1, 2, 3 Shop vacs. And like everyone I found they were great for general vacuuming but filled/clogged fast. I just HATED emptying these and knocking out the filter because invariable dust ended up everywhere. So reading through lots posts and articles (and being cheap) I tried the PVC pipe and bucket idea. It worked pretty well for big stuff but the fine dust still clogged the filter and frankly it was a pain to u...

My Dust Collector Mod #1: Design and Adapting the Air Filter

07-17-2018 11:02 PM by BrettLuna | 2 comments »

Since we’re replacing our well pump this week, I won’t be buying that spiffy new dust collector this fall that I’ve been eyeballing. Instead, I opted to modify my current DC, a very humble, very 1-horsepower-ish Shop Fox W1727. The plan is to replace the filter bag with a more efficient pleated canister filter, equip it with a Super Dust Deputy separator, incorporate my iVac remote switch, and build a new base to hold it all. Here’s what points A and B look like: ...

Workshop operational tips. #4: Sharing shop vacs between power tools.

05-30-2018 09:10 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 16 comments »

Boys and Girls, While this may be old hat to most, I’ve had enough friends (another one today/yesterday) saying that it’s a good idea, so I thought it might be worth a shout out. If you have a shop vac with an automatic outlet and share it amongst a number of tools during the one session, bridge the two with a power outlet plugged into the dusty. You can then plug each of the power tools into a spare outlet and give them all access to the dusty without dancing the power point shuffl...

100 foot cabinet shop #3: Dust collection!? We don't need no steenkin' dust collection!

03-01-2017 02:50 AM by Madmark2 | 6 comments »

Was cleaning out the saw and was impressed with how much dust accumulated even with a 4” line. The dust collector was not clogged but the saw dust simply doesn’t self cascade into the vac hole. So I had a thought that since the saw cabinet was filling anyway (and it holds a lot of dust), that perhaps I was wasting time/energy cycling the DC for every little saw cut. So I now don’t bother turning on the DC for the saw until I’m doing a cleanout. Discuss! M

Mahogany Shop Dust Extractor / Air Filter

02-27-2017 10:14 PM by heldercruz100 | 1 comment »

View on YouTube As we all know woodworking involves a lot of sanding, and that makes a lot of dust in the air. So yesterday I found an old extractor, it was from my growroom but still works. I made a box with joinery, painted the fan black and as usual gave it a mahogany finish, I think it makes a nice contrast, what do you think??

Shop Tools #1: Building a Wood Cyclone

08-04-2016 07:01 PM by htl | 7 comments »

I was thinking about building a bigger wood cyclone but really the one I have works great so why build a bigger one, then it hit me I really never showed all the pictures of this build so here’s a how2 of my build a year or so later. 4/13/15Before this I built a Thien baffle style outfit. It was a self contained two bucket system that worked just about as good as my wood cyclone.Here is a picture of the two systems working together but saw no need for the two bucket job once I had the ...
