By the way of introduction I did carpenter work for many years. I also drove a school bus for 30 years. Due to health problems I had to retire and get disability. I now just do my wood working. I build furniture,cabinets,stools,shelves and the like. My specialty,is crafts,toys,and models of trucks,cars.tractors,bulldozers,school buses,and the like. My shop is 20 by 24. I just recently got a 10 by 12 room that used to be attached to a mobile home. I moved it and put up against my shop. I have cabinets for patterns and a desk and shelves to store crafts on untill have a craft show. Someone asked if I had 220.I do have 220. I have a 200 amp service for my shop on a separate meter from my house. I have quite a lot of tools that I have collected over the years. I have a table saw, lathe.drill press,disk belt sander,scroll saw,band saw and a lot of small hand tools. I have a 1and1/2 hp motor off of a craftsman table saw and a furnace blower. That is why I am trying to build my own dust collector. I am on a very tight budget so I am trying to use what I have on hand. I replaced the squirrel cage with a 12 inch plywood impeller. I have it picking up some but not enough. I need to get the suction up a little more. I have it going to 55 gallon drum vented to the outside. Any advice would be much appreciated. gmcooter. By the way I got that nick name from the kids on the buss.
