  1. Building a Picket Fence on A Slope

    I work here in Georgia and most commonly when I build a fence, the land is very uneven. So everyone always wants to know how much more it's going to cost to have to build the fence on the slope. Because of the way I build my wood fence, it takes right at the same amount of work, so I tell them...
  2. 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...
  3. Harbor Freight Wagon Mod

    I was looking for a wagon to transport coolers over rough terrain and lawn. Pneumatic Tires on the Harbor Freight Wagon was a plus but the 4' length was more than I needed and not easily transported in an SUV, Mod was in order I made a new deck recycling some oak paneling left over from when I...

    I am mounting the blower of my DC1100 on the wall and want to rotate the blower housing so the outlet will face 90 degrees from where it is now. Now the intake would be down and the outlet will be perpendicular to the wall I want to run the exhaust parallel to. Problem is, I can't figure out...

    I've got a 2HP Craftex dust collector with a canister filter. It's basically the same as the Grizzly of similar size. I've got a 4" line running through solid pipe to all my tools. This connects to the collector via a 3 way split into the machine. Before the split the machine has some metal...

    This is my current set up. I reconfigured the Harbor Freight special ala April Wilkerson and early Jay Bates. I also changed the impeller to the Rikon 12". I kept the run pretty short and tried to keep it big and straight as long as I could. The total run is about 10 ft distance. I feel though I...
  9. Focus on the Workspace
    I know a bunch of folks have swapped the stock HF impeller for a larger Rikon model, but has anyone done a similar swap with the Grizzly G0548ZP 2HP canister DC? I've built a sheet metal cyclone and put the blower assembly on top, but I'm wondering if there's a way to squeeze more performance...

    I'm looking for a blower with a 14" - 15" impeller. I already have a 3hp motor. Does anybody know where I'd find a blower with that size impeller?
  11. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Hello, I just purchased a Delta 50-904 dust collector with a cracked impeller. The impeller is about 15 pounds of cast aluminum with straight fins that are about 5 inches long. I am very concerned that a weld repair might not be adequate and that trying to spin the repaired impeller might cause...

    Hey all - brand new here. I have a Shop Fox W1666 dust collector that I am using as the heart of my DC system in my garage shop - hobby only - 1 tool at a time. The DC specs: 2HP - 220v 12" impeller 6" inlet/outlet I am adding a Super Dust Deputy (5" inlet, 6" outlet) and a wynn filter...

    Long story short - clean up your loose tools before using the dust collector to get the rest of the sawdust, or you may ruin your impeller, as well as your pants. The unit still works, but sounds like ********************, and doesn't suck as well. I've tried to straighten the blades out, but only had limited...

    I've heard people say that things can get sucked up into the impeller and they break. How many of you guys has that ever happened to? What brand of DC system do you have? What caused the damage? Of course, if it has never happened, I'd like to know what brand you have or why it's never been a...
