Dust Deputy + Fein Turbo I and Festool Mini

Dust Deputy + Fein Turbo I and Festool Mini

08-28-2021 04:39 PM by OnhillWW | 6 comments »

My intention for this review is to share my opinions contrasting two Dust Deputy (DD) dust collecting setups that I’ve built. The first is a Festool CT MINI + DD and the second is a Fein Turbo I + DD. If you have examined the many other reviews here and elsewhere for the Oneida Dust Deputy you will already know that this little wonder performs above most people’s expectations and that it is one of those devices that has a simple design and great performance. I really would ha...

Not Perfect, but pretty close for me + Great Customer Service

Not Perfect, but pretty close for me + Great Customer Service

07-19-2021 11:19 PM by whope | 23 comments »

I’d give it a 4.5. I rounded up for the excellent customer service. This is my third dust collector. The machine I replaced was a Jet DC-1100VX that I’d had for just a few years. My first was a Delta that Lowes was selling for cheap. I’ll mention up front that when I upgraded to the Harvey, I also added 6” metal ducting which I’m sure had a big impact on performance. But it should, I spent about the same in ducting as I did for the G700 (about $2,500, includin...

My version of the Harbor Freight dust collector

My version of the Harbor Freight dust collector

05-24-2021 03:10 AM by aehrhar2 | 7 comments »

This is my second setup for this unit and will be upgrading the impeller as soon as it’s received. I love the setup and having the motor mounted in the attic with the exterior exhaust cuts down on the noise drastically. I have a 6” down pipe w/2 separate 4” drops to the tools.

Rockler Router Table Dust Bucket

Rockler Router Table Dust Bucket

05-01-2021 01:09 PM by DaveM123 | 4 comments »

I happened to see this product after I had done a bunch of routing and had sawdust and chips everywhere. Even though I had my dust collector hooked up to the router table fence it wasn’t terribly effective. I took a look at this and thought about making one but honestly between cost and time this proved out to be worth it. Assembly was straightforward and easy with everything lining up perfectly. Attaching it to my Rockler Router Table was relatively easy and my Bosch 1617 fit with no i...

Works great, but with one recently discovered potentially dangerous flaw.

Works great, but with one recently discovered potentially dangerous flaw.

I’ve been using the Long Ranger 3 for 15 plus years now for controlling my 220volt 2 hp. Grizzly dust collector. Though I always felt it’s construction…somewhat flimsy plastic on both the remote and base unit somewhat sub par, it has worked flawlessly, especially given I’ve dropped the remote a gazillion times. Yesterday I rearranged the shop, and needed to create an extension for the base unit to the dust collector’s dedicated wall outlet. Pulling the dust collector cord from the...

Quality No Longer At This Price

Quality No Longer At This Price

07-12-2020 05:01 PM by mrtrenier | 8 comments »

I went with the Powermatic because I assumed I was getting a higher quality machine. I was sorely mistaken. I had to add a couple of my own washers, there were no instructions for installing the Vortex cone, and plastic handles abound. I am very sorry I didn’t go with the Jet and could have saved myself a couple a hundred bucks. Granted, I just tried the machine out, and the suction seems good, but more in line with my Jet not a machine that is supposed to be much more powerful. If...

Miter Box Dust Collection Hood

Miter Box Dust Collection Hood

05-30-2020 05:30 PM by Kelly | 0 comments »

I’ve tried several methods of collection dust from my miter saw over the years. Some used a shop vac and some used a dust collector. All successful ones relied on some sort of box or container to capture dust tossed off the miter. Oddly, the shop vac version worked well, but it was a full cabinet with side support beds, a lowered, adjustable table for the miter, and a back with a dust port. To be fair, it was for my first and most accurate miter – a Delta, which did only angle...

Dust deputy gets 10 stars

Dust deputy gets 10 stars

05-17-2020 07:27 PM by ibewjon | 12 comments »

Last night I tried my new dust deputy on a 5 gallon bucket connected to an older Craftsman shop vac. I was collecting the dust from a Supermax 19-38 sander. It did an outstanding job, very little dust in the filter, and over 2 inches of dust in the bucket. For me, it is temporary until I get my main DC piping extended to my front garage area, but it is a great addition for anyone not having a whole shop system.
