Workshop Information

Location
United States
In late 2015 I removed all of my dust collection system and boxed it up… with the exception of a few 4" hoses that I left on the floor for use on one machine at a time. (I'll re-install the system one machines are rearranged.)

These pics are what the shop looked like immediately afterwards… and after cleaning.

1. Welcome to LJs !
2. What did you do with the DC after taking it out?
3. I see you have a drill press fetish. Tell us about that buffer/wire wheel/stack dedicated unit.
4. I bet it's never been this clean since the day you took the photos!

LOL

Oh did I mention? WELCOME to LJs !

I just TEMPORARILY took down the Dust Collection System and left a few hoses for short period use of the table saw.

The new design will require a lot of machine moving… so I'll reinstall it later… on the Ceiling instead of the Floor.

1. Thanks JoeinGA
2. The Dust Collectors are just waiting to go back in… one on each side of the shop… with all new runs of tubing and more gates. Can't live without them
3. The buffer drill press was my original… for 30+ years. The table collar broke one day with a big Forstner Bit… so it was out of commission. I bought the small Delta on Craigslist for $50 that week… used it for a while… then found the big Dayton Drill Press for $150. About a year after the first one broke… I finally got the replacement collar and decided to load it up with wire wheels and buffers to clean off rusted bolts and parts from used machines that I buy and recondition… and put to use (the Jet Sander was a resurrection from a rust bucket to like-new). I just need to install a shroud around 3/4 of the wheel assembly to contain the debris from flying all over hell. It works pretty good… but I've never used the lowest steel brush. I have 3 grinders… one for rough metal work like lawn mower blades… one with buffing wheels for chisels… and one for for hollow grinding cheap chisels before honing. I use honing stones only for the good chisels and plane blades.
4. It's still clean… as the shop has been down for several months while I work on the new room a few hours a week.

Thanks…
It's easier to keep clean when I'm not making anything - 2016 will be a year dedicated to working on the shop.

But I am planning a DUSTLESS SHOP.

This guy did it:

Thanks All…

The shop would be better if it was fully operational… but still no Dust Collection System Version 2.

I keep busy working on small projects and tuning hand planes… when I have time.
