  1. Dust Deputy Cart

    I was inspired by postings I saw on Lumber Jocks to build my own Dust Deputy Cart. This works flawlessly. I use it for dust control on my table saw, jointer, shaper, and for vacuuming in my shop. This is very similar to others described on this site. If you recognize your design, I thank you...
  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 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...
  4. Another! Vacuum and Separator Cart

    Like so many other LumberJocks, I got tired of the transportation issues associated with a separator system. Two units, hoses, wobbles, tangles and the like. So, I decided BUILD A CART! Mine isn't anything special, it's all 11/16 ply and joinery is via my Kreg Jig kit. I used what I had on...
  5. Clyone form a traffic cone

    Hi There, my name is Jean. I study mechanical engineering & management in Munich. After I finished my Bachelor Thesis about particle seperation, I decided to build a cyclone for my vac and explain a few details for you guys 'in the internet'. The drawing (in millimeters of course - this is...
  6. Simple dresser

    Sort of loosely inspired by campaign furniture. Carcase, web frames, and drawer fronts are 3/4 birch ply from Home Depot edged with 1/4 inch oak strips. Varathane oil based American Walnut stain, finished with oil based satin Varathane poly. The finish job isn't the greatest, particularly on...
  7. Cheap dust collection solution

    I have been using this dust collection contraption for well over 2 years and frankly I love it. It does everything my small shop requires, and does it well. I have a nice craftsman table saw, a jet 16/32 drum sander, grizzly 14 inch band saw, and a home made router table. This configuration has...
  8. Thien separator V1.0

    After thinking about it for a long long time, I braved making Thien separator. it was actually very very easy. I made a router jig for cutting circles and after that it took less than 2h to build. I think I can make another one now in under 1h…. total cost including rubbish bin and DC elbow and...
  9. Pull Out Dust Bin For My Separator

    I finally added a pull-out bin for my Dust Collector Bin. One thing that I noticed is, although this system works VERY well, the dust and chips collected in the front left corner of the bin as seen in the 3rd picture. This was true even before I added the pull-out bin. The problem with that is...
  10. Dust Collector Upgrade

    This is a great way to make a a Delta 50-760 single stage collector into a double stage collector w/o increasing the footprint. The first thing I did was to add a sturdier floor to the base made of OSB. That really strengthened the rather flimsy original, plus the original doesn't go all the...
  11. Festool CT15 Pre-separator

    My wife bought me a Festool CT15 dust extractor for our anniversary a couple weeks ago. I decided I wanted to add a pre-separator to extend the life of the bag. I search online and found a design somebody was selling called a Festopper. I liked the concept but since the CT15 cannot accept...
  12. My New dust collector Setup

    Hey guys, I just wanted to post my project that I have been working on. I used a Harbor Freight dust collector motor and blower Mounted on the wall and an Onedia Super Duty Dust collector cyclone on top of garbage can. I piped the exhaust of the HF blower out the wall so that I do not need any...
  13. Sign Post - Updated

    Just an update - So many requests to see the "YARD WORK" so some attached photographs, not the spring has eventually come. Hi Folks We have had a holiday weekend ( 4 days) here and the wife is away, but I have no time to play! I promised her I would not go into the workshop, this weekend...
  14. Zebrawood, Padouk and Wengé box

    Appologies for the bad quality of the pictures. They are made with my phone instead of my camera. The grain of the Zebrawood goes around the box and, a little hard to see due the bad quality of the picture, the Padouk is bookmatched with the Wengé in between. Resawing is done with the bandsaw...
  15. HF 2HP Dust Collector Mod

    After purchasing the Harbor Freight 2HP dust collector the other day on sale @ $139, I got to work modifying it as many others have done. I bolted the motor to the wall and connected a separator underneath. I cut the two hose sections from the existing hose that came with the DC and used those...
  16. DIY 3hp Automatic Dust Collection System

    This is my 3hp dust collection system. I am trying to make the most efficient use of my limited space (21'x21' 2-car garage) and have designed this system so that it takes up zero floor space. While it is not a traditional cyclone collector, it does have a very functional separator which, so...
  17. My Mini Cyclone

    I had to replace my shop vac. Sanding dust destroyed the bearings in the old one way to early. So for this one I wanted to keep as much dust away from the vac as possible. I started with Bill Pentz's cyclone calculator and only planned to build the cone, similar to the Dust Deputy. I made it...
  18. Tv Shelf and Fish tank Stand

    I built this fish tank stand and TV shelf to be used in my master bedroom. I built both using some reclaimed Oak wood and Oak plywood and stained it all with red mahogany and top coated with oil based poly. I weigh 250 and the shelf can support me so no worries of the TV ending up in the tank...
  19. Refinished Table

    So my wife had been discussing getting a new table, but I, being a bit of a titewad, didn't want to spend money on a new table when there was nothing wrong with the one we had. While visiting my parents house one weekend, I noticed that my dad had stripped and restained the family table to a...
  20. HFDC Done!... nearly

    I thought it was about time I should post a project. My apologies for the photo quality, dark basement with phone's camera. I finally made the stand/cart to hold all the components in a more space efficient way. I went with the common cart design out there. Built it with scrap 2×4's and ply...
