  1. DIY Dust Collection (On the cheap)

    Got a new Porter Cable Table Saw and I have been making ALOT of sawdust. They way the it is built it forces all of the saw dust out of a dust port out of the back of the saw. Sawdust was getting over everything. Needed a cheap solution to capture the dust. I don't have enough money for a full on...
  2. My Version of a Thien Dust Separator

    I was so excited on how well this worked that I just couldn't wait to post this project. This is my version of the Thien Dust Separator. It worked better then I even expected so I was just excited to share this. My little shop is in my garage which is attached to the house and thus dust...
  3. Thien Baffle Dust Separator

    Hello All, I made this dust collector in order to extend the life of my shop vacuum. After clogging my shop vacuum filter and having to blow it out in order to restore the performance of my shop vacuum. After some research online I found the Thien Baffle and was very interested in its...
  4. DIY Router Fence with Above/Below Dust Collection and Micro-Adjustable Fence

    I have been using this fence system for a while and still have not seen another one like it, so I thought I would share it with everyone. The fence mounts to a box that slides within a bigger box. This inner box is spring loaded to the retract position. Wedges/ramps then adjust with a knob in...
  5. Makita 2040 Dust Collection Upgrade

    Well, I started with lwllms design (http://lumberjocks.com/topics/10827) with the 4" vent and rubber pvc cap, and it worked ok, but, it was hard to seal, and harder to get all the chips from BOTH sides, usually just the one. So I took it apart and realized there was plenty of space inside the...
  6. Craftsman 113 rear cover for dust collection

    I was looking to improve the dust collection on my Craftsman 113 table saw and found the design Leec posted here (https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/264002) but couldn't find dimensions anywhere. After a cardboard template and lots of trial and error and many tweaks I traced the pieces out and...
  7. I'm all in!

    I was asked to make poker chip tray inserts for a poker table. My rendition was made out of Packing crate poplar and off-cut Plywood pieces. The 'client' (my dad) made me swear I wont use expensive wood. So This is what I came up with. The wood all just worked so well together forming a faded...
  8. 45° jig / sled for perfect miters

    I needed a jig to cut dead on 45° miters for keepsake boxes. using the blade set to45° will create a bit of a bow in the miter. Keeping the blade at 90° keeps the gyro effect and the force of inertia true. Some years ago I saw something similar, and the concept stuck in my pointy head. Now...

  11. An Electrical Engineers Solution to Dust Collection

    I am fairly new to woodworking and like many of you have a small shop which for me is a one car garage that my wife very kindly lets me use for my hobby. As I have gotten more and more into the craft of woodworking and naturally started to acquire tools I recently found myself at the age old...
  12. Thien Dust Pre-Collector for my Delta 50-760 Dust Collector

    I made this pre-collector for my new Delta 50-760 Dust Collector. This project is 1000% worth it, I've emptied the can 3 times and there is no more than a quart of dust so far in the Delta's plastic bag. I chose the 50-760 because it came highly recommended and has space for the collector can...
  13. yet another SCMS DC hood

    I rearranged the shop and decided to upgrade my SCMS DC hood (from my old trash can solution). Design objectives were: 1. Easily removable, so the saw is still portable. Two 1/4-20 wing carriage bolts with wing nusts detach hood. 2. Light weight, so as to not make the fold up stand tippy. 3...
  14. My first (good) pens

    These are the first pens that I have made that I consider to be up to the standard that I feel comfortable selling them with my name on them. (They are on the website in my signature under "Items For Sale" ) I do have a bunch of substandard "practice pens" and key chains that I don't know what...
  15. Arts & Crafts Clock

    We needed a clock in the large living room and we have all Mission-Style of Arts & Crafts furniture throughout the house. I made this little clock to match the "Rainbow coming out of the house" project I had done earlier. I truly think one the best tools in my shop are the Veritas Set-Up...
  16. Oscillating Spindle Sander Enhancement

    This is a prototype fixture and not sure what to call it. I needed to sand some legs and don't own a drum sander or sand flee. I used some scrap flooring and plywood to create an enclosure for the spindle. I had to make some recessed cauls to facilitate clamping and an "emergency" hole in the...
  17. 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...

  19. DIY Mobile Tablesaw/Router Workstation w/Integrated Dust Collection

    I know there are more than a few garage woodworkers out there. My home has a 21×21 attached garage, so I wanted to design an inexpensive and practical workshop, but without dedicating the space only to woodworking. I found a lot of great ideas on the web, but I couldn't find a complete shop...
