Excellent dust collection

Excellent dust collection

03-21-2020 02:33 AM by iminmyshop | 8 comments »

My 14 year old 1 3/8hp Powermatic dust collector finally bit the dust (pun intended). I’m glad it did. This 5hp Oneida dust collector puts it to shame. I’m not used to working in such a clean shop. The suction on this is amazing. This model is intended to work with either one 4” port or up to three 1 1/2” ports at a time but I routinely use it on a 4” and one or two smaller ports at once and it does just fine. It is definitely not a quiet machine but seems ...

First , I’m sorry I’ve change these pic 4 times and while there right side up in my gvery as soon I post them they turn. Ughhhhhhh….. I’ve dreamed of owning a true dust collection for yrs. Don’t get me wrong, my Penn Industries served me well for yrs in my small California shop. But when Blondie and I moved and talked about our dream shop she was insistent on finishing off with this. The price is a big commitment, but so is our health. I worked with Scott ...

Worthless (at least for me)

Worthless (at least for me)

12-07-2019 12:41 AM by DannyW | 48 comments »

I bought this adapter set in hopes of connecting at lease SOME of my small power tools to my 2 1/2” shop vac but it doesn’t fit anything and the hose is far too heavy to be useful. I have got to quit buying stuff from Rocker as I have never found anything that I am satisfied with when buying their brands. Just another disappointing waste of money. Why can’t too makers coup with a standard size?

Review of Magport Magnetic Couplings

Review of Magport Magnetic Couplings

09-11-2019 10:27 PM by BobHinden | 21 comments »

I have been using the 5? version for about four months. I am very pleased with them. For shops that use a movable hose approach for dust collection, I think they are great. I currently use them to connect my Mini Gorilla dust collector 5? hose to my SawStop PCS, router table, and Hammer A3-41. They connect easily and are self aligning. To add them to the SawStop and my router table, I used a short length of 5” flex hose and hose clamps to connect the Magport to the dust fit...

Nice, quiet, and probably too nice for a shop

Nice, quiet, and probably too nice for a shop

About a year ago, I decided that needed to get a real air cleaner for my shop. While poking around for reviews, I found a review of this Rabbit Air unit (mine is the 700 sub-model) on another woodworking website. It costs a bit more than the traditional air cleaners, but with the extra features, I decided it was worth it. It has 4 layers of filters, some you can clean, some you need to replace. You have a choice of the final filter and I went for the ‘toxins’ filter. Features I...

Dust collector review

Dust collector review

04-23-2019 10:29 AM by robscastle | 5 comments »

In 2012 I built this dust collector from two plastic buckets and some 90mm PVC Pipe.From 2012 to today it still works fine and was the subject of a blog in 2012.I was using it today and thought maybe it was time to give some feedback on its operation. Here it is today still going fine. never had a operational blockage (apart from when rain water got into the system)Mind you the thicknesser gives it a good workout as that will fill everything quick smart when operating. Nothing much ...

Pocket door slide as a hose holder.

Pocket door slide as a hose holder.

04-01-2019 04:48 PM by RobS888 | 8 comments »

I purchased this a month back for $35 after seeing Rockler’s ceiling mounted slide. I like and have a lot of Rockler stuff, but sometimes their prices are too high. I got this aluminum pocket door slide mounted it to the ceiling in my garage:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0044FWZEQ/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I used rubber straps I already had to hang the hose from wheel assembly and now I can cut an 8 foot board without thinking about the hose or it sn...

2HP C Flux dust collector

2HP C Flux dust collector

03-08-2019 10:35 PM by Jwhite2418 | 3 comments »

As I mentioned that I was going to buy a new dust collector which I did a year ago this month. I purchased Laguna’s 2HP C Flux cyclone dust collector. It came on a pallet in a very study box. No damage and everything was in there as advertised. The manual wasn’t as bad as some reviews have stated however there were a few items that were a bit unclear. I really don’t think there really is anything worth going over – you can figure it out. Anyway it does take ...

Onieda V3000 One year review

Onieda V3000 One year review

02-06-2019 03:05 PM by edapp | 6 comments »

A little over a year ago I moved into a new house with a dedicated, not my garage too, not tripping over lawn mowers, wood shop. I was, and still am, extremely excited about it. I celebrated a bit and spent some money on a few new and really nice tools to get everything setup right, because a lot of the remodeling of our house was coming out of my shop. This is my first real dust collector. For years I had been using a shop vac or just letting the dust fly/build up in the cabinet of my saw...

One Year Later  WEN 3410 Air Filtration System

One Year Later WEN 3410 Air Filtration System

02-02-2019 07:40 PM by fivecodys | 12 comments »

I wanted to wait a year before giving my review of the WEN Air Filtration System. I added this unit to my shop at the same time as I installed my dust collection system. (Jan 2018) I have it mounted in the area of my shop that generated the most dust. It hangs over that area from the rafters.It is to the right of my table saw and over the bandsaw, planner, jointer, & router table. .It was difficult to tell how much this unit was helping to reduce the fine dust in the ai...
