    Hey guys. This didn't come up on a search, so i hope it's not old news. I get a new magazine the other day, and it had a 25% off one item coupon from Harbor Freight. Their 2hp dust collector is also on sale for $199.99 at the website. That's $150, plus shipping and any applicable tax. I got...

    So I went by Sears today to pick-up a Dado throat plate for my table saw ($10.00). I started looking around and found a floor model Craftsman Professional 1-1/2 hp Dust Collector being clearanced. So I end up buying my first dust collector for $125 out the door. Now does anyone have one of...

    I recently got fed up enough with all the dust in my garage to start to get serious about dust collection. I basically copied another Lumberjock post from Cory I never even turned the collector on when I got it. I decide after lots of reading to go the HF route and modify it to avoid...

    I have a DC3300 Shopsmith dust collector that I plan on using in my garage for dust collection with a table saw, router table and band saw. I know nothing about these and would like the opinion of others concerning the efficiency of the collector.

    Just as the title suggests, would it be a effective to keep it running to clean the air in my small shop, (two car garage)? Can I take off the hose from whatever machine and just let it collect the surrounding air?

    I bought this new in 1987 when I started my business and used it with a table saw and planer for about three years when I moved my shop. I haven't used it since. It is made to sit on a 55 gal drum to collect the chips, but it was a pain to empty. I built a cabinet that it is sitting on so the...

    Can anyone give me some tips on re-soldering broken bandsaw blades? I always end up with messy welds that break as soon as I put pressure on the blade. I have one of the kits from Lee Valley that holds things together while soldering, but I've never done any soldering before, so maybe I'm...

    I was just diagnosed and have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. My Vascular Surgeon wanted me to have a chest x-ray and it showed blockage in the lungs. I smoked for 35 years and quit 10 years ago so that had some effect but the hard breathing and bad coughing just started to increase...

    So I'm looking at some DC units. I've heard (surprisingly) great things about the Harbor Freight 2 HP freestanding DC unit. http://www.harborfreight.com/2-hp-industrial-5-micron-dust-collector-97869.html#.UzSG_a1dV5M People on youtube etc have shown some really cool ways to make it work for...

    Hey guys. I have the HF 2hp dust collector. The inlet y-shaped piece that fits over the fan inlet casting broke. The fan inlet casting itself is too big for a 4" hose to fit on it. I called HF and they no longer support spare parts for the unit, so that is not an option. Looks like I'm...

    I just got my Harbor Freight 2hp Dust collector and I'm planning how I'm going to set up my basement dust system. I've found the optimal corner to set up my collector and run pipes to my tools. The only problem is that it is right next to my house's fuse box. Is there any danger of sparking...

    There's always some thing on the floor around the back door at home. I 'm thinking this might help . I was just wondering if I should replace the tread with something stronger as the bracing might have to be conpensated? If you have done this how do you safety lock the drawer so they don't pop...

    Hey all. I tried out my woodcraft dust collector trash can separator lid, and it didn't do a darn thing. Hardly any dust in the can, lots of dust in the bag on the collector. I've heard of people having good luck with these…so what am I doing wrong? I have lost the directions, so I've been...

    I think I just made the haul of a lifetime…. I'll admit there have been times ive seen where others have scored a great deal on an item, and while im happy for them, ive silently wondered "Why cant I ever seem to find a deal like that"? Well I think that all changed today! I was on the hunt for...
