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.

saw this in a rockler ad and having already been using there other hoses and fittings decided to give it a try.the canister has 4 fittings that will fit just about any ros out there.the end screws off to empty,this is were the filter is attached.filter is rated at 10 microns not the best but seemed to work as well or better than the cloth ones on most sanders.i did have the unit pop off my sander a few times,i need to add something to my sanders dust port to eliminate this issue.if your not a...

Excellent dust collection

Excellent dust collection

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 | 50 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...
