    I picked up a box of clear lawn bags from a big box. It's nice being able to just toss the bags, when full. However, I haven't been able to use them in my collector barrel for the cyclone, because of the common problem of the bag getting drawn up. A week or so ago, I bought a roll of fencing...

    Hello fellow Lumberjocks, I need some advice. I have a very small shop(10' x 16'). I am in the market for a dust collector, and I would love to know if anyone has any advice for the best bang for the buck collector? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I cannot seem to find the answer I am looking for. I am in the "design on paper phase" of setting up dust collection in my shop. I am looking to buy the Harbor Freight 2hp with the canister upgrade by Wynn that many here have. I originally was going to have a bit more elaborate runs using 4"...

    I purchased an old dust collector for $100 and I've hooked it up and it makes a LOT of noise and seems like it would suck the chrome off a trailer hitch. So I'd like to use this in my shop for dust collection. I know how important it is to properly size the duct runs, and it would be nice to...

    I live in Argentina. Affordable dust collection systems are not available commercially, so I need to go the homemade route. As I research DIY systems online, I see that the air filters are always the LAST component right after the motor/blower. Does anyone KNOW how the system might function...

    Hey, Guys. I just bought a used Delta 50 - 850 roll around dust collector. LAST NIGHT. I got it to the shop this morning, immediately connected it up to my planer and went to work. After operating for less than two hours, smoke was pouring from the power switch. I immediately shut down the...

    This is a re post!!! Since I have made many new friends here, and some are asking me kindly why I have these pains, I have decided to re post this post that I made in the now gone coffee lounge before it was closed. No sad song, but a song some times out of tune! Just a little perspective to...

    My new workshop is just about complete. The workshop has a room upstairs I can use for the sharpening station, storage, etc. I want to store the dust collector upstairs also. My question is can the dust collector collection container be down stairs and still work as it should. I purchased the...

    I got a dust deputy for my old shop vac about a month ago and love it so far for cleanup and some light dust collection. What I don't love is holding myself back from hurling it, and the mess of hoses out into the yard every time I attempt to move it around the shop and the constant bucket...

    I currently have a 2HP Harbor Freight dust collector with a 55 gallon fiber drum dust separator inline. I've seen the Thein Baffle but don't have that feature currently. My question/idea is to add another dust separator ahead of the 55 gallon fiber drum or one behind it. I'm wondering what...

    I have been planning to build a Morris chair for some time and the plans from a recent edition of Popular Woodworking look pretty great. However, one of the reasons I started making my own furniture is because I am a much larger (6 foot 7 inches tall) than the average person. Up-sizing desks and...

    Please forgive me for possibly stirring up an old and settled subject. I have read hundreds of threads about whether or not two blowers can be joined to improve performance. Some say it isn't possible or it offers no improvement. Some have advised that running parallel verses in series is the...

    So I think my HF dust collector motor might be going out. I noticed that the circuit breaker had popped so I went and reset it. By the time I got my hearing protection back on it had popped again. So I started to look at my equipment and my HF dust collector motor was hot as hell! The chord that...

    I'm planning to install my dust collection system soon and would like to do it only once. I have an old 55 gallon drum type system, 2hp with 6" in and out. The outlet goes to a bag filter, but I'm pretty sure it is no where near 1 micron capability. I'm wondering if I can build a box frame...
