    I just want to make sure I have this correct. If I was to build one of these for my 2hp harbor freight dust collector then I should use 6 in pipe going from the impeller to the center of the lid, then from the side of the lid to my ducting? I have been doing research on this for some time and...

    I am re-arranging my two-car garage workshop to clear enough space to actually park two cars. This means moving my sliding compound miter saw against a wall. To that end, I'm planning to buy a Bosch GCM12SD Dual Bevel Glide (...

    This article compares a Dust Deputy with a homemade Thein baffle, paired with a shop vac. The author tests both fine particle removal and suction loss, using spices for visibility and nice aromas. It's an interesting experiment. If I can ever carve out out of a bit of time I would like to try...

    I have owned a Proxxon DSH Scroll Saw. Had it for 4 years and use it regularly, approx once every few months. I'm a blower and have never got the air nozzle working properly. Recently someone said hook a fish take air compressor up to it and my question is, is that something that is practical...

    Has anyone used a bucket head from HD attached to a table saw for dust control? Unfortunately I don't have a garage and have to work outside under a carport, only advantage is i do get air flow through my "shop." I'm curious because a bucket head would fit snugly under my delta saw and space is...

    Cabinet... Learning Experience Well here they are, my first attempt at cabinets. I decided I needed additional storage and organization in my shop. So I started building these a few months ago, in between other goings ons. They are primarily built out of scrap and I used the Kreg Jig to join...

    Air filter Drove out to Geneva today to pick up an air filtration unit for the new workshop. The painters have been complaining about sawdust in their art (oops). The fellow I bought it from built it himself from scratch. Despite that, it is very well designed, probably better than most...

    Lumber Rack I learned a long time ago that there are many ways to do just about anything imaginable. Some work better than others - but the main thing is that they do the job. I've decided to write a brief blog from time to time describing something that's 'worked for me' in my shop. If you...

    Found a way I like to cut straight-end, non-through rip and crosscuts in plywood This is probably a common technique, with a name, but it only occurred to me today. I gave it a shot, and it worked out really well. I'm going to use it from now on for non-through cuts, and by that, I mean rips...

    Media Filters I have been reading and commenting recently about shop air filtration and the concern for it. My decision to write this was to give the LJ's community some facts about air filtration. Let me start with my knowledge base. I started my own air filtration business after my son was...

    Drill Press Dust Collector Fixture Several months ago, I ordered the Peachtree Drill Press Dust Collector. When it arrived, I was disappointed because it never occurred to me that the product was not really intended for the type of drill press I have (Performax Model 90219). The problem is...

    AP400 filter upgrade! I got an exciting shipment in today - a canister filter for my Delta AP400 Shopmaster 1HP dust collector! Suction has been declining a lot these last months. The bag has been getting dirty but I just hate spending an hour blowing dust out of the thing. I'm always in a...

    Delta 50-760 with Cyclone Retrofit. I have declared war on dust in the shop. My shop is in the basement/garage and I have been spending more and more time there. Recently I was planing/jointing around 100' of rough cut cherry for a project which produced a lot of sawdust from all the power...

    Making progress - Making connections Hi all, I'm Jyl. I'm obviously new here and appreciate anyone who decides it is worthy of your time to read. I am a lover of wood, building, being creative and all things small. I came back to creating with wood (and other materials) because of a health...
  16. Hand Tools
    I'm building my first workbench. After a ton of waffling I'm trying to use old OOOOOOLD oak timbers that I already had. These are beasts at around 8×9 or so, and 15-20' long. Sadly they have a lot of mortises in them which severely limits their usefulness. Step 1: Cut a chunk off the timber...

    Well to start I want to say I have until 1/6/14 off work. I have been spending a lot of time in the shop planing. I was wondering what you all do to keep from over filling your DC. I have a custom 3 HP cyclone with a barrel separator in line before the cyclone. It can be seen here. It has a...
