Harbor Frieght Dust Collector Modification, or, not leaving well enough alone! #4: Good enough for now!

02-10-2015 07:26 PM by luv2learn | 15 comments »

I have created four zones, so to speak, for my D.C. upgrade. They are controlled with four 4” blast gates all located close together and close to the D.C. I will only use one zone at a time for maximum efficiency. I used a combination of D.C. fittings, blast gates, sheet metal fittings as well as sheet metal duct work. Now an explanation of the various zones. The first zone on the right is dedicated to my planer and later to my joiner once I get it modified. The second zone is...

Setting Up Delta DC w/ Wynn Filter & Super Dust Deputy

03-31-2014 02:40 AM by dakotawood | 5 comments »

Alright, my first blog entry ever. I’ve learned so much from so many here. Figured it’s my turn to hopefully help someone out there. I researched this topic extensively. There were similar things on LJ about this upgrade. But I found I wanted some more specifics as to how to hook up exactly before I purchased everything. I have a Delta 50-760 DC. As you can kind of see in this image, my existing factory cloth bag has seen better days. It’s quite brown colored on the outsi...

misc #2: horizontal router table

05-20-2012 01:07 AM by Chris Cook | 5 comments »

Inspired by Stumpy Nubs’ horizontal router table. I decided to make a run at my own design. I used a mix of what I saw Stumpy doing and the one that MLCS Woodworking. This is a design-in-progress as well as a work in process. My design drawings are incomplete. I started on the build this week. There are a lot of little things I am working out. I am going to use this with my Freud router. It has a router table base that will mount onto this so I can ...

Building my dream shop #14: Shop Update, Tool Gloat, Wood Gloat

06-19-2011 08:18 AM by rep | 5 comments »

Shop items made it to the top of the priority list, so I have been working on setting up my cyclone dust collector. Running pipe and electrical took a while. Here is the ClearVue Cyclone installed. I mounted it on a free standing frame it isolate the vibration from the walls. I imagine a metal skin pole building might make quite a racket if mounted directly ;). I have added a McRabbet kit to detect a full bin – which will sound an alarm and can turn off the cyclone before dumping ...

In the Shop #3: Shop Face-lift Completed

01-30-2011 04:57 AM by Hoakie | 5 comments »

Ok, is a shop really ever done?!? At least it is a major improvement over the last arrangement You may recall that I solicited suggestions for a proposed shop rearrangement a couple of weeks ago. The primary reasons for changing things up is that I felt a) the arrangement was very inefficient to work in and b) I’m getting ready to build either the 21st Century or Holtzapffel workbench and really wanted to have good access to all sides of the bench Since I’m going to update...

Adjustable Height Rolling Outfeed Cabinet #1: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

06-02-2011 08:53 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

But the past I am condemned to repeat is the creation of a new design that I have never done before, am not certain of the existence or availability of key materials and hardware, and possess the barest notion of what it is I want the thing to do. Welcome to my world. I knew I wanted a sturdy outfeed table atop a cabinet that would provide much needed storage in my small shop and would provide another work surface. If that were the extent of my desires I’d have whipped it out in n...

Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

10-19-2010 12:56 AM by zzzzdoc | 471 comments »

At the very start, let me give all the credit in the world to Tedth66, whose project this is totally based on, and who has been graciously providing guidance as I build this. This is a modification of his design, adding a few details, and making it work for my shop. I have a 2 car garage / workshop that is tremendously space challenged, so I need to be clever about every square inch. On top of that, I enjoy modifying designs and making them work custom for me. So when I saw Ted’s ...

Motorized Router Lift - wiring video

02-25-2009 10:52 PM by John Nixon | 7 comments »

Hi Everyone, Over the weekend, I made two videos on how to do the wiring for my Motorized Router Lift. If you were thinking of making one for yourself, this video series should help you along a bit. The electronics are pretty simple, so don’t be intimidated. I also show how to make a cool looking and functional control panel for the Motorized Router Lift:
