  1. Thien Baffle

    Thien Baffle

    I recently built this Thien Baffle for my Delta dust collector. I mocked it up in Sketchup and then tweaked the design as I went. Had some scrap marine grade plywood that I used for the top and bottom, which is very smooth and works well. I used 1/8" thick acrylic around the sides of the...
  2. HFDC Barrel Top - 2 Stage Thien Cyclone

    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...
  3. Thien Baffle, Version 1

    Thien Baffle, Version 1

    My first attempt at a Thien Baffle. The stats: - 16" high top hat chamber made out of 1/2" MDF. - 55 gallon drum with 99cent 3/4" pipe insulation as sealing medium (hay… it works!). - 6" short piece of spiral pipe squashed with my foot to become 8.5" x 4" oval at the inlet. - 1/16" lexan x 16"...

    Loft bed

    I made this for my nephew about 5 years ago. It was my first piece of furniture and used my first mortise and tenon joints in it. The mortise's are all cut by hand as I didnt have a mortiser yet. Thankfully the pictures and stain hide most of my sins the joints are far from perfect. It is...
  5. Modified HF Dust Collector (March 2013)

    Modified HF Dust Collector (March 2013)

    Also featured on my website This is going to be a long picture and video filled post. Hopefully a one stop shop for those who want to do the same thing. I didn't want to spend any more money on a nice can filter for the unit so I decided to vent outside. This creates a negative pressure inside...
  6. Thien Baffle - Highly recommend!

    Thien Baffle - Highly recommend!

    So impressed how well this works! I finally installed a Thien Baffle on my Delta 2hp dust collector. Amazing difference, especially for just a couple hours work. The fourth photo is what I was having to clean out of the filter canister after each bag, and I was emptying the bag when only 3/4...
  7. HARBOR FREIGHT DUST COLLECTOR CONVERSION

    HARBOR FREIGHT DUST COLLECTOR CONVERSION

    I saw the idea of converting the standard Harbor Freight Dust Collector with a separator and Thien Baffle on a mobile cart here on LJ's. I want to first begin by thanking Cory and Bert for sharing their ideas and creativity here. These two projects inspired me to make my own version. Cory...
  8. Reclaimed Pine Dining Table

    Reclaimed Pine Dining Table

    I built this dining table based on the overall look of the Toscana table at Pottery Barn. My friend liked the X leg style and the overall informal and warm quality of the table. I obtained some beautiful salvaged heart pine that felt almost as heavy and dense as white oak. I used the best wood...

    Over-eater, Driftwood Carving, Josh Carte

    This fella' just doesn't know when enough is enough. I've heard of folks having eyes larger than their bellies, but this guy is taking it to a whole new level :) I carved this unique, free-standing sculpture from a piece of driftwood. It is 6 1/2" tall x 7" wide x 2 1/2" thick. I used rotary...

    A Series of Unfortunate Events

    This is a mash-up of a blog and a project with some very important lessons learned: I recently came across a great deal on some rough-sawn hardwood so I bought 200 bf of cherry, 200 bf of walnut, and 200 bf of soft maple. Since all of the lumber was rough sawn, I had a bit of planing to do. I...
  12. Hand Tools
    Hi all, This is my first post, so here goes: I've been at it for under a year only, but I'm a sucker for hand planes- that is cleaning them, identifying them and learning their history. For the most part I have been able to figure them out, but now I've run into a puzzler. It's a 13 1/2"...

    Yesterday I went down to Harbor Freight to check out the dust collector that they were running for $139. Based on the other good reviews I've seen on here I decided to give it a shot. I've got it home, assembled, and I've 'dry run' it a bit and it seems like it is going to be good. That being...
  14. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Hey Guys, I'm new to the forum but have been trying to find someone who has the Oneida Super Deputy XL in use w/ their shop. I'm looking at upgrading my 3HP dust collector to a 2 stage system and I'm also upgrading to filter cartridges/canisters. I haven't been able to find any reviews or info...
  15. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    So, I'm still new to the Forum but have been reading lots of the different posts about dust collection. I'm currently running a 3hp 2800CFM DC w/ a cyclone. I currently have the 2 bag version and I'm wanting to upgrade to canisters. ...BUT… Given the price of canisters and where I live it would...

    I'm wondering does anyone knows of a review, etc., where the CV1800 was added to an existing single stage DC? Thanks.

    So I built this 5gal bucket separator. My objective is to separate out most all of the fine sanding dust before it hits the filter. Mostly this is to save me having to knock out the filter every 15-20 minutes (It clogs fast). No Thien Baffle just a 90 degree inlet and a strait centered outlet...

    FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT! Maybe "LOVE" is a strong word. But I'm really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It's been over a year in...

    day 1 And so.. my personal Thien Baffle challenge begins. 1/2" MDF (i have 2 of these 4×8' sheets..might as well use them). First time ever working on MDF with a power tool. To date… MDF 1, Eric 0 for dust control. This baffle will sit on top of a 55 gallon plastic drum, be 12" high (to...

    Harbor Freight 2 HP Dust Collector Mod Picking up on the idea of converting the standard Harbor Freight Dust Collector with a separator and Thien Baffle as described by KDC68 here, I did my own build based on KDC68's design. I'm not going to go into the repetitive details of my build, but will...
