    (Finally) Upgrading from a Shop-Vac So for the longest time I've heard how much a Shop-vac doesnt quite cut it when it comes to larger machines, and how much quieter "real" DC machines are compared to a shop-vac, but being a weekend warrior, my budget is limited, and space was a big issue for...

    The need for change For some reason I have had a problem lately with the bags on my dust collector (DC) coming off during use. Needless to say it made quite a mess. It seemed that I couldn't get the cloth belts that held the bags on any tighter. My first thought was to get a canister as a...

    Design and Adapting the Air Filter Since we're replacing our well pump this week, I won't be buying that spiffy new dust collector this fall that I've been eyeballing. Instead, I opted to modify my current DC, a very humble, very 1-horsepower-ish Shop Fox W1727. The plan is to replace the...

    Dust Collector I modified my Harbor Freight dust collector. I run it through a dust separator first which works like a charm, and then the fines end up in the black can. I was tired of struggling with the bags so I added the black plastic can, i went overboard on the lever latches.

    Hi, I'm contemplating which dust collector to start of with? currently I am using a shop-vac, and only have a table saw, jointer, drill press, and a router table - so for most part it does a good job, but I would like to have something a bit bigger for the tablesaw and jointer. I see the Delta...
