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 | 9 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 are 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 air...

Dust Deputy, Fein Turbo II and a Homer bucket

Dust Deputy, Fein Turbo II and a Homer bucket

01-02-2019 03:00 AM by Green_Hornut | 15 comments »

I received a Dust Deputy DYI for Christmas and now that the holidays are winding down I decided to put everything together. I was happy to receive it as a gift with the expectation that it will help reduce the number of expensive bags I have to buy for my Fein Turbo II. After watching a couple of YouTube videos of other installs and reading the owner’s manual I stopped by Home Depot and picked up a Homer bucket and top. I liked HD’s top because it had a rubber gasket to help seal. The Dus...

A Lot of Issues

A Lot of Issues

10-08-2018 02:56 PM by WoodyS4S | 21 comments »

We recently acquired a new Oneida 5HP Dust Gorilla Pro with Smart Boost. After watching an episode of “The Wood Whisperer” on youtube and doing some research we decided to order one. BTW no one is paying us to write this review, we have no endorsements. Everything arrived on a crate and it was mostly well packaged, the large HEPA filter had a little damage to one of the gaskets but nothing major. The first issue were the instructions, or lack thereof. The only instructions...

Sequential Cyclone, can't be matched

Sequential Cyclone, can't be matched

10-02-2018 02:09 AM by steffen707 | 9 comments »

I read the dewalt planer would overpower normal shop vacs and had enough power to blow the chips into the cyclone. While this was kinda true, it struggled with the shopvac hooked up to the top port of the cyclone and not turned on. So i just hooked a hose up to the top port, it worked a lot better, but when the 30 gallon can I had fills up, it of course happens in the middle of a pass. So half a pass worth of fluff gets blown all over the shop or driveway….... SOLUTION? I dai...

Trend AirShield Pro

Trend AirShield Pro

09-04-2018 04:25 PM by Ben Mclellan | 23 comments »

My first review was so convoluted that I decided to remove it . I have included a couple of photos of my work show that I do have some understanding of what is required and should be provided as far as dust protection is concerned . First off what right does Trend have to call it a PRO? Clearly on page 2 of the instruction manual, the first item under TECHNICAL DATA clearly states QUOTE : Warning The TREND AIRSHIELD PRO is not a RESPIRATOR nor a NIOSH approved device. Using the power v...

Dustopper from Home Depot review

Dustopper from Home Depot review

07-20-2018 02:15 AM by Thisguybeanz | 37 comments »

The biggest thing I love about this dust collector is the size and simplicity of it. All you do is open the box and attach it to any 5 gal bucket and your ready to go. It even comes with a 36” hose with 90 degree elbow. That mean no dealing with sealer bolts drilling cutting and fitting. Its even 10 bucks less that it’s competition. Made a little cart out of scrap wood in about 20 min for it all to fit. Had about a gallon of fine dust from sanding in my shopvac so I emptied as mu...

Updated: Sept '18: Long term review.  Low noise level, but keeping the filter clean is a task.

Update September 2018:After posting this review and thinking it over, I decided to give the filter bags another try. Maybe it was just the variety of stuff I sucked up the first time, but I’m having a better experience with the bags this time around. With the bag, the filter still gets partially clogged, but its a lot slower than I remember. So I’ve been using it with filters the last few months and been pretty happy with the suction. Original Review:I’ve had my Karche...

Dust Cobra Dust Extractor, 17 Gal

Dust Cobra Dust Extractor, 17 Gal

04-25-2018 01:52 AM by JBrow | 2 comments »

Purchase. The 17 gallon Oneida Dust Cobra Dust Extractor along with the optional 2.5” x 25’ CleanShop Vacuum Hose Kit replaced a 1980s Craftsman Shop Vac outfitted with Oneida’s Dust Duty. The Craftsman was showing signs of wear. The Craftsman began making noise when shut off, probably dry bearings. Shop vacs and dust extractors were considered, but the Dust Cobra seemed to offer more. It is designed for a 2-1/2” hose. An Industrial Dust Cobra, which includes a drum dolly...
