  1. Pre Dust Collector Dust Collector

    My Brain said that I needed this. Actually it will help a lot with carting sawdust up the stairs. Emptying that plastic bag was always really messy, and I would allow it to get way too full. Now I parked a 20 gal trash can in the empty space of my Delta DC, and its job is to gather most all...
  2. 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...
  3. Thien Top Hat dust collector separator, Thein baffle, and 3 station manifold

    I had a portable Jet DC. It had a Wynn filter on top of the Jet spin chamber and I was real happy with the filtration. However, I was very surprised at how much dust came out of the filter when I cleaned it. I beat it for 20 minutes and vacuumed out the inside and I still got more dust when I...
  4. 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...
  5. Thien Dust Pre-Collector for my Delta 50-760 Dust Collector

    I made this pre-collector for my new Delta 50-760 Dust Collector. This project is 1000% worth it, I've emptied the can 3 times and there is no more than a quart of dust so far in the Delta's plastic bag. I chose the 50-760 because it came highly recommended and has space for the collector can...
  6. Hillbilly Introduces Thein to Tyvekboy

    This is a project that has been on my "to do" list for several years. I finally got around to it this past winter. The construction details for the Thein came from a December 3, 2010 post on Charles Neil's old "In the Workshop" forum entitled "How to Build a Thein Dust Separator," by Pitbull...
  7. Easy Dust Separator

    This is the build of a dust separator. I needed something to pull the dust away from power tools that had a 2" or smaller hose attachment. My 1.5 hp, 6" hose double chamber vacumn didn't pull enough suction when necked down to the smaller diameters. I had downloaded the Bill Pentz...
  8. Plying templates

    As part of my yarn-spinning-related Etsy shop I made these plying templates last night. They're maple wood with 7mm holes and tung oil finish. Handspinners use them to make the yarn plying process a bit easier and less "tangley". They were surprisingly straightforward to make - I am quickly...

    Attach to a tree or a fence, screw corn cobs to the 4 screws… And watch!
  10. Thien Separator

    I built this Thein separator to go with my HF 2 HP dust collector a while ago, before I had even joined LumberJocks. I actually never ran the dust collector without the Thein separator and Wynn filter cartridge. Both have proven to be good additions. The separator takes care of 100% of the...

  12. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    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...

    Modifying the standard collector, would it work? Something I've been thinking about for a long time. Since I'm involved in whole house renovations at the moment I won't get to building it for awhile but maybe someone might and find it doesn't work and put me out of my misery in thinking about...

    Modified Harbor Freight Dust Collector Modified Harbor Freight Dust Collector I made this before I started creating videos for YouTube. This is my interpretation of the Thein Baffle reconfiguration of a Harbor Freight dust collector. I did this for a couple of reasons: First, my shop is...
  15. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I have two photographs of my work bench that are the same project. I uploaded (by accident) both photos as separate projects, not knowing that I should have uploaded both under the same project to show the progress as it went along. My question is, how do I remove the one project listed under my...

  19. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I'm looking for advice regarding which kind of dust collector I should buy. I have a basement shop that I'm just setting up. I have ample floor space, but limited headroom. (83" from the floor to the joists, and another 5" between the joists that I could spill into if necessary). The only...
