  1. Ghetto Fabolous Vacuum Cart/Dust Separator

    I've had this idea to make a dust separator for several months now, I even made the top for the bucket about 5 months ago, it's been sitting there ever since. Yesterday and today I took a little time to make it function. It's made out of all scrap osb and plywood I had lying around (as you can...
  2. Thien baffle

    After reading lumberjocks for some years now, today I decided to post my last project. I'm setting up my new tiny workshop and the Bosch vacuum I have, gets filled in quite quickly. I have took the design from Phil Thien's website. The design was from retired2. I finally completed the project...
  3. My new Dust Collector Separator and Cart

    I hate dust. My shop is also my garage and dust gets on everything. I started out using a shop vac but it was really noisy and not that effective so I gave up on that. A 2hp dust collector seemed too expensive for me as a hobby woodworker on a budget and it would also take up valuable floor...
  4. Thien Type Pre-separator

    Like many others, I found myself constantly cleaning my dust collector because the cartridge was plugged with sawdust and chips. I purchased a cyclone separator lid (photo 2) at a woodworking show and placed it on a 30 gallon metal trash can. While it did reduce the amount of debris getting to...
  5. Miter saw cart with dust hood, thien dust seperator. Dewalt 779

    I decided to take my mitersaw off my workbench. I had it installed as a fliptop but as cool as it was, it was inconvenient. Sold the Dewalt cordless mitersaw and bought the DWS 779. Time to make a new stand!! The wings extend just short of 11ft. Bought a "big gulp" 4" hood and installed it just...
  6. Pull Out Dust Bin For My Separator

    I finally added a pull-out bin for my Dust Collector Bin. One thing that I noticed is, although this system works VERY well, the dust and chips collected in the front left corner of the bin as seen in the 3rd picture. This was true even before I added the pull-out bin. The problem with that is...
  7. Zebrawood, Padouk and Wengé box

    Appologies for the bad quality of the pictures. They are made with my phone instead of my camera. The grain of the Zebrawood goes around the box and, a little hard to see due the bad quality of the picture, the Padouk is bookmatched with the Wengé in between. Resawing is done with the bandsaw...
  8. 2 Handed Sword

    Christmas gift for my son, 2 handed sword made from laminated salvaged Walnut and scrap aluminum. The blade is 1/8" thick aluminum, sanded to 120 grit for texture and to help hide future scratches, while the blade is not sharp, it is beveled to give the appearance. The pins are solid aluminum...

  10. Upcycled Shop Stool Using An Old Office Chair Base

    My wife was cleaning up our daughters old room and came lugging out an old office chair that the kids had destroyed at some point. Instead of taking the base to the dump with the rest of it I decided to hang on to it and see if I could make something with it. This is what I came up with…a...

    Hi All, Do You have a weight problem? I do… Here is a Doctor that has some pretty good ideas on how to SOLVE the problem… and it seems to be SO SIMPLE… I am passing it on to you… Maybe it will make a difference with you! (us) I plan on watching the rest of the videos and hopefully, it...
  12. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I'm looking to make my first dust separator for a shop vac system and was leaning toward the Thien Baffle lid for a 7 gal bucket. Regardless of which ones I found online it seemed like some saw dust would always make it through to the shop vac. I also found many people saying a trifecta type...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a Grizzly GO710 (1 hp.) DC and am thinking of building a thien baffle mounted on a 30 gallon metal trash can. I have been using a 5 gallon plastic bucket (Home Depot style) and my 10 gallon shop vac. with a Dust Deputy and have at times had problems with the suction collapsing the bucket...
  14. Focus on the Workspace
    I've strewn all kinds of fragmented pictures and verbiage about my little system on several posts and responses to others' posts since I joined LumberJocks. I have never really tied it all together as the project that it was. It is what it is… and this 4 minutes and 48 seconds is about it.

    Modifying the standard collector, would it work? Something I've been thinking about for a long time. Since I'm involved in whole house renovations at the moment I won't get to building it for awhile but maybe someone might and find it doesn't work and put me out of my misery in thinking about...

    HF-DC Dust Collector Optimization I know that many people have modified the HF-DC but I just wanted to put my spin out there. I have been doing a lot of research on the many different styles of updates/modifications that have been done and holy cow there are a lot. But, most of them rely on...

    Modified Harbor Freight Dust Collector Modified Harbor Freight Dust Collector I made this before I started creating videos for YouTube. This is my interpretation of the Thein Baffle reconfiguration of a Harbor Freight dust collector. I did this for a couple of reasons: First, my shop is...
  18. Focus on the Workspace
    Hey folks, My home shop is set up in the attic. It's a 20' x 30' footprint and is peaked, altough it is a very decent working/living space. The peak is about 10' from the floor's center and I have 2 small dormers to give you a rough idea of what I'm talking about. Right now, all the roof...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I recently got fed up enough with all the dust in my garage to start to get serious about dust collection. I basically copied another Lumberjock post from Cory I never even turned the collector on when I got it. I decide after lots of reading to go the HF route and modify it to avoid...
  20. Focus on the Workspace
    I have a HF dust collector. Last year I got a 55 gal plastic barre off of CL and installed a simple box separator and vented it outside. I was very pleased with the suction, but it seemed like a lot of the dust was being vented outside. This weekend I put a pile of dust in front of the floor...
