  1. Cyclone filter quick disconnect

    I have had a Cleavue Cvmax cyclone for around 3 years now. I like it except when the filters get too loaded up, the suction is horrible. I have a 37" dual drum sander I use as a planer. This would be the culprit to loading up my filters. I love my drum sander too much to get rid of it. The...
  2. Easy Dust Separator

    This is the build of a dust separator. I needed something to pull the dust away from power tools that had a 2" or smaller hose attachment. My 1.5 hp, 6" hose double chamber vacumn didn't pull enough suction when necked down to the smaller diameters. I had downloaded the Bill Pentz...
  3. A little box with inlaid dovetails - and its plain "sister"

    These are now complete, but I have not taken photos of them finished. I will donate them to a Silent Auction, which will take place this coming Saturday, at our daughter's church. I used quarter-sawn sycamore; the finish will be Waterlox Original, buffed to a satin finish. The top photo...
  4. Jatoba with a bloodwood heart

    The spousal unit and I were cruising the lumber store, looking at wood-porn and just having a nice time. The budget was very tight, so we didn't expect to take anything home…but there was this pile of flooring remnants. Three-foot-long pieces of a very unimpressive looking wood, sort of muddy...
  5. Refinished Table

    So my wife had been discussing getting a new table, but I, being a bit of a titewad, didn't want to spend money on a new table when there was nothing wrong with the one we had. While visiting my parents house one weekend, I noticed that my dad had stripped and restained the family table to a...
  6. Three mission style tables

    These three mission style tables were all Mortise and Tenon joinery. The white oak is rift and flat sawn. This was a real work out for the two newest tools in the shop. A Shop Fox Mortising machine and a Jet 22-44 Plus drum sander! I don't know how I ever built anything before I got the new drum...

    I'm wondering does anyone knows of a review, etc., where the CV1800 was added to an existing single stage DC? Thanks.
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm in the process of remodeling my shop. I'm building cabinets for storage,painting and installing a new cv max cyclone from clearvue. I had a tough time deciding on what kind of pipe I wanted to use in my shop. I ended up going with Nordfab pipe. I already put in a $1,000 order and it came...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I just purchased a CV1800 for a small shop that I'm building out. Was originally planning to use S&D PVC for the ducting, but-since it's such a small shop (16' x 10' with the DC installed in an adjacent 5'x5' utility room)-I feel like I can spring for CT (Nordfab-style) steel pipe: 6-inch for...

    ClearVue Cyclone Installation Since I started woodworking about 2 years ago I've been using a Powermatic canister dust collector along with a overhead air filtration unit for dust control in my basement shop. It did a nice job of chip collection. But, after a while I noticed there was always...

    My introduction to woodworking When I first got into woodworking, I had just purchased my first house and bought a used fish tank I wanted to refinish. As I was working on it, I bought one tool, which turned into 2 tools, which turned into 3, and so on and so on. Eventually I was doing more in...

    Mitre Saw Dust Collection Quick video of my simple MS dust collection. The constant cough that I had after making a lot of cuts on the MS was what drove me to get a DC in the first place. After experimenting with a variety of hoods and DC setups and I found that the hood design doesn't really...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    Hi All! I'm actually posting this question for my wife, since she doesn't have a LumberJocks profile (yet). We just bought the new scroll saw (Porter Cable from Lowes), and my wife is planning a Christmas-themed intarsia project. I'm certain that certain woods are better for intarsia than...

    For those with the TS-3650 or the CT-146 here is a video just posted today from Busy Bee.
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi all, I have finally put together my dust collection system. I started with the Clearvue 1800LH model that has the 5hp 240v motor. I then ran 6" ASTM 3034/SDR35 (green) with the white SDR35 wyes and 45 degree elbows. Here are my questions: 1. If I take 1.5" screws and screw them into...
  16. Focus on the Workspace
    Hello, I have debated on wether or not to get a Clear Vue Cyclone for some while now. I live in Norway, but a while ago they offered free domestic shipping, and 220$ off on international shipping. This definetly helped in their favour! :) I'm not buying a motor from CV, because the Hz in...
  17. Focus on the Workspace
    Why not just set up the DC exhaust outside and avoid the need for $200 filter? I have my DC setup with a good ducting system, etc., but I'm concerned by Bill Pentz's warning that it's the dust I can't see that is the most dangerous. I wear a 3M 7500 series mask when using ROS and hand sanding...
  18. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I am a woodworking hobbiest who has a shop in the basement. It's not ideal, but I love my shop. I crank out a lot of work and am proud of my results. I currently have a 3hp dust collection unit that does a great job of collecting (via 6" ducts) the majority of chips produced by all of my...
