  2. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have been reading as many posts as I can to figure out a dust solution for my shop. I should say that I do not plan on buying a dust collection system, I will be using a shopvac with a dust cyclone setup. I am also considering getting a wall mount shop vac, but I digress. My question is can I...
  3. Table Saw Dust Collector

    As I've posted before, I tend to take equipment, and materials work the best they can for my needs. I have gone to a whole new level now with permanent, "fixed"(I hope), dust collection. I have a "screamer" table saw that I built a massive rolling workbench for, with miter slots, and storage. I...
  4. Dust Free Router Table w/ Free Lift

    Dust Free Router Table with a Free Lift Been asked again about my Router Table which also an extension of my Table Saw, so I decided to make a post for it. The table is basically made out of melamine sheet with an exception of the top that is two ¾ sheets of MDF glued together and laminated...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. Mesquite Bar Stool

    Made it for my uncle who had been wanting one since i started making these "works of art"
  8. My Fancy Home Made Dust Cyclone

    It is made with a cone sold for sports usage. The dimensions are were not calculated or copied. Simply built as a test project that provides amazing results. Connection of tubing to the cone is tricky and most glue types didn't work. Actually it is still not glued as expected but it will soon be...
  9. Shop Air Cleaner

    I acquired an older furnace blower saw it as a perfect opportunity to make my shop a little cleaner. The unit itself is pretty large at 33"x22"x19" tall. I have two 16"x20" filters on each side and the air blows out the top. I splurged and installed a one hour timer on it. It's mostly made out...
  10. Benchtop Downdraft Sanding Table

    I put together this downdraft benchtop sanding table from some scraps I had laying around the shop from other projects. I started with a small pieces of ½" MDF, ½" ply, 1/8" pegboard and a leftover 45 degree PVC elbow. The size was somewhat determined by the scrap pieces, but the long MDF...
  11. Clear Vue -- Thein Top Hat Dust Collector

    Thein Top Hat Separator gets married to a 16" Clear Vue impeller & blower housing with a 5hp Leeson motor. The result is a DC that outperforms the "short" cyclones from the major manufacturers for a fraction of the cost. In addition, when I get my dream shop one of these days with tall...
  12. 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...
  13. Air Cleaner

    I have been admiring the brand name air cleaners at the local woodworking store and those built by other lumberjocks for quite some time. About a month ago, there was a craigslist posting offering a squirrel cage blower and motor that was used to dry basement floors. I checked it out and found...
  14. Limey Tom's Thein Top Hat

    I've finally got round to sorting out my dust collection setup. I moved my big chip collector up into the loft space to gain more room, but that then raised the question of what to do about emptying it. Replacing those dust sacks is a big enough pain in the arse as it is without also having to...
  15. Harbor Freight Dust Collector Mod

    After buying the Harbor Freight 2hp dust collector right after Christmas, I knew I was going to be making some changes to it. First, I dumped the upper bag and added a Wynn 35a filter. Second, I really wanted to put a pre-separator on the unit to keep from having to change the lower bags as...

  17. The increase in the pocket for the sawdust to the miter saw

    My mitre saw has already been equipped with a rubber pocket for sawdust. But its efficiency, even when working with a vacuum cleaner was bad. I decided to expand it, and cut a pocket larger (about 2.5 times) from a plastic bottle. Established a new pocket I directly to the old two screws. As...
  18. MFC Upgrade

    We needed additional work surfaces that worked with our Festool clamps, Veritas planing stops, and a way to attach our Woodtek picture frame jig and corner V nailer pneumatic gun. After looking at the Festool table we concluded we did not have enough space for another work table. This led us to...
  19. HFDC Barrel Top - 2 Stage Thien Cyclone

    Just thought I would share my version of the HFDC Thien Baffle transformation. I didn't want to have my motor permanently mounted to a wall above the barrel, so I decided to attach it right to the metal lid of the barrel, which worked great. I plan on venting it outside since there is very...
  20. For WOODTURNERS ONLY, spindles, 100%, Dust collection better than expected. Truely LIFESAVING

    In my last posting I made a dust collector shroud out of a bucket to collect the dust from sanding bowls. If you have not seen that one don't forget to check it out and watch the video While I was building and testing it out, I got an idea to make one for sanding spindle type turnings, my head...
