Outfeed table/router station

I recently moved into my new place about 4 weeks ago, since then, I've made some new stuff to create a good work flow. You can see below that I started with a new outfeed table by taking off the router extension on the right of the saw table, and building one unit that wraps around the saw. I needed to remove the router extension because I had to set the saw against the wall (almost) to get clearance on the left side, since this is a downsized shop from before. After building this table I mounted the router table against the wall and soon found out (on my first job in here) that I didn't have enough room on either side to rout long pieces. So, I built it into the outfeen table and then fabbed up a new fence. Hope you like!

Cyclone seperator

I have a friend that is an HVAC specialist and we sat down and designed this unit together which he then ordered some custom parts to be made. After $60 in materials, $85 for the dust collector and a cutting board for a trade off, that left me with $145 out of pocket. Not too bad, I don't think. It works good, but can only do one tool at a time. Oh, and I also spent about $40 on the 4" hose and 6" duct work into the trash can.

I wired its outlet to the wsitch there to the right of the collector. That way, I can turn it on easy when at the tablesaw.

No large chips in the bag. Of course my next upgrade is to get a 5 micron or smaller bag….This one is 35.

Basically you are saying we all need to court a HVAC specialist friend. Would you recommend flowers or chocolate to attract them?

Sweet, cheap, and compact. Good for you. I like it.

I really like having a 1 micron bag. Nothing gets airborne. I also use the one machine at a time rule, but this maybe because I am too lazy to pipe the whole shop.
