Rolling Dust Collector

I’ve recently moved into a much smaller shop, requiring me to downsize everything to fit the new space. My previous dust collection system was based on the same Jet 1100 system, but it was mounted to the shop wall and piped to each machine and workstation. The new location is a shared garage, where I have had to put everything on wheels to allow it to be moved around. A 4” flex hose makes the connection from dust collector to machine.

This stand is principally 2x stock, on four flip up wheel assemblies. The original Jet blower now has a second stage using an Oneida Super Dust Deputy cyclone and final dust removal with a Wynn Environmental .5 micron filter assembly. A 20 gal Oneida can collects the large particles and a standard 5 gal pail handles any fine dust dropping out of the filter assembly. Both are easily emptied through the side of the stand. I eliminated the Jet Vortex drum in order to save space, and so far, it doesn’t seem to have any negative effect.

The whole configuration is easily moved between my different machines or out of the garage to work in the driveway. First attempt was to repeat attaching the collector to one wall of the shop, but that didn’t work in the new shop, as the noise transmission into the rest of the house was way to bad, so the free wheeling stand came into play.

I use this collector on a number of machines including a 13 in planer, a 16-32 drum sander, and a good size lathe – and it handles everything without a problem. More info is on my Instagram site @oceanside_woodcraft. This was reasonably easy to build using standard construction materials, some heavy steel angle braces, a half sheet of 3/4 plywood, and a whole bunch of screws!

A little inconvenient but still handy as all get out – nice planning
