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...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #104: The Ultimate Space-Saving Dust Cyclone Separator Cart

07-18-2019 01:28 AM by technoslick | 9 comments »

The Dungeon Workshop continues to be a war zone, but progress is being had, albeit s-l-o-w-l-y. This evening I finished one of two identical dust control builds, based on this YouTube video: The Ultimate Space-Saving Dust Cyclone Separator Cart | Dustopper & Ridgid Vac Cart I liked the space-saving design of John’s design. Floor space is at a premium and I need a portable system, one at each end of the workshop. This is what the first unit looks lik...

Workshop operational tips. #8: Easy(er) Way to Change Your Dust Collector Bag

06-18-2019 01:14 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 18 comments »

Boys and Girls, Another one of my plagiarised hints. One of the things I will criticise about LumberJocks is that there is a wealth of information out there that just doesn’t seem to get sufficient distribution onto the “ignorant”. Now no offence meant to members as many may consider everyone knows about “it”, whatever “it” may be, and there probably have been a number of past posts that the search engine did not reveal. Even if the subject h...

tablesaw dust collection

02-13-2019 08:03 PM by recordking | 5 comments »

I recently upgraded my dc system to include a super dust deputy added to my 1.5 hp jet single stage dc, replaced my old piping w/new sch20 pvc. So far I’m very happy with the separation, compared to the old system its amazing. while doing this project I realized I needed to do something with the collection at my Jet pro shop table saw, the collection that comes standard on the saw is awful at best. I removed the existing bottom plate and replaced it with a new one dropped be...

Dust Collection Foot Switch Kick-Start

12-30-2018 03:32 PM by steliart | 12 comments »

Dust Collection foot switch kick start A few years back, I purchased a dust collection remote control which was supposed to be for ALL type of DC as Woodcraft advertised. Unfortunately is not for all types of DC. My DC has a magnetic switch thus the remote system will stop the DC but it will not start the motor, so every time I had to switch in on manually bending down to the motor switch and to stop it I just used the RC by pressing it twice, one time to stop the DC motor and a second tim...

Dust Collection by the Numbers #2: Terms and Definitions

04-29-2018 12:49 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

It’s been a few weeks since I first started this discussion on dust collection systems and the math/science behind it. There is a vast amount of information available out there and all of the variations on how to size a DC set up. Here are some basic terms to get things started: AIR FLOW:cfm (cubic feet per minute) is the volume of air being moved by the blower. 350 – 45 cfm is required for dust removal on a table saw fpm (feet per minute) is the velocity the air is mov...

Dust Collection by the Numbers #1: Where to Start?

04-14-2018 01:02 PM by EarlS | 5 comments »

You are probably wondering why there is yet another dust collection blog, forum, review, or question. It seems like the topic comes up a couple of times a week asking mostly the same questions and giving mostly the same answers. I was switching out the blade on my saw and noticed that there was a a pile of saw dust and chips in the cabinet space under my Delta Unisaw. The 4” port to the dust collection system was covered as well. At first I thought there might be a larger piece of...
