Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #19: Sucking Sawdust

04-22-2020 12:09 AM by Bill Berklich | 4 comments »

I use my RAS… a lot. For the longest time I’ve had a wheelbarrow behind it where most of the sawdust lands and it is a lot of sawdust. Almost as much as my table saw. I’ve seen several LJ’ers and Youtubers with various RAS dust collection methods and decided that I like the fence port style best. I start out by collecting scraps then turning the inside of a 2.5” Sched 40 pipe to fit the vac hose. Then using scrap I built a box about 9” Deep by 12” Wide Skinned top an...

Manifold, improved

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

Back a while ago I built a dust collection manifold, 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.

Dewalt Miter Saw Dust Collection

02-06-2020 12:49 AM by BlueRidgeDog | 21 comments »

So I have the same miter saw as a lot of folks, the Dewalt DWS779. It shares a frame with several models. The dust collection on it is poor to horrible. Mine is zero as I had to remove the stock dust collector as the rail extends far enough back as is and to mount it to a normal cabinet you have to remove it or have nearly no room for the wood you are cutting. I designed one that would allow me to make use of my 4” dust collection system: I needed an adapter to go from on...

the broken carpenter #5: Dust Mitigation

12-16-2019 08:17 PM by SquintyPolock | 0 comments »

Happy Holidays to all! It’s been a little while since I have posted; 3 years. It’s been so long that I had to reset my forgotten password! I’ve made some upgrades to the shop since my last post, 3 years ago. I constructed a rolling table for my portable table saw and a rolling table for my chop saw. I didn’t document those builds, but here a couple of pics from when I completed them in 2017. Tables were made completely from scrap lumber that I salvaged fr...

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 retired_guru | 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...
