  1. 6" Blast Gates for Sheet Metal Ductwork

    When I prepared to install my new Dust collection system, 6" gates were a premium item. I looked around the internet for a good homemade solution and found many that used PVC pipe.

  3. Door or mirror

    This one is a work between my wife and me. She put the idea and the art. I make the part of wood. If the door is closed , is a mirror, only. Only the handle of the door, it seems out of place. The meetings of the corners, they do not stand out, it looks like a closed frame. With the opened door...

  5. DIY 3hp Automatic Dust Collection System

    This is my 3hp dust collection system. I am trying to make the most efficient use of my limited space (21'x21' 2-car garage) and have designed this system so that it takes up zero floor space. While it is not a traditional cyclone collector, it does have a very functional separator which, so...

All are for a 4"hose except the 2, 2 1/2"universal fittings. Some still in original packaging. They...
  8. Focus on the Workspace
    I really appreciate the CV1800 cyclone dust collector setting in my shop. However, I really do not like dancing through the shop opening and closing blast gates. I know there are automated blast gate systems, but I am too cheap and lazy to install these, so I will keep dancing. The problem I...

    I'm about to move into my newly constructed shop and need some advice. My cyclone dust collection system will be located in the "crawl" space below the shop thus the ducts will come to most machines from holes cut in the shop floor. I plan to have separate gates for each tool to improve...

    This is a 2HP Grizzly Dust Collector. To the best of my knowledge the unit is about 10 years old, but has seen hobby-level duty for the past 6 years. It takes about 5 seconds to full spin up when you turn it on, but runs great. It ran continuously for 4 hours last week without issue. I'm selling...

    Shop Dust Collection Thought I'd share my dust collection set up since I struggled to find something that gave me what I was looking for. Part of what I've been working on lately has been my "must have" shop projects and the first was dust collection. I had an older Jet 650 that I bought of CL...

    Dust Collection & Health Risks from Wood Dust I recently had a health scare about my lungs - everything is ok now, but it reminded me again why respirators, vacuums, dust collectors, and air cleaners are so important. I don't see enough of this type of information on YouTube to educate...

    Hello all, I am now the proud owner of a 96 model 5hp Delta Unisaw. It does need some work, but should clean up nicely. I need to run a dedicated 220 circuit for it, and was wondering if anyone uses GFI when putting these circuits in. Of course, a GFI would be nice, but the breakers for these...

I'm not a big fan of having all the duct work on the walls and ceiling so I...
