    So my shop is in a pretty cramped basement with no ventilation really besides the stair case down to it. I always wear a respirator whenever I set foot in there, but I'm thinking of finally investing in a dust collector (my current system is a shop vac and a broom). I'm planning on using it for...

    Hi there, I want to upgrade my dust collection. I just use an old vacuüm cleaner right now. I would like to collect my dust in a bucket before it gets into my vacuüm cleaner. I have watched some video's on youtube about this topic. Some just hook up a couple of hoses to a bucket. A few make a...

    Hello all, I am new to woodturning and I have a question regarding dust collection and safety before I get started. I live in Southern California, where I have the ability to turn outside and store the lathe in my garage. With a portable lathe (on workbench casters), do I need to worry about...

    So recently I got an old Craftsman 113.19063. I haven't gotten a chance to use it because we got evacuated during all these dumb fires in Cali. Anyway, I am going to build an ~4x6 table/stand/cabinet/outfeed table that it sits on/in and that I can store tools etc in. I have a small single car...

    Dare I be so bold as to assert something such contrary to common belief? It appears that aluminum tape is only for security, peace-of-mind and bling. (all of which are important) But as far as air leakage is concerned, I feel my tests exceed practical reasoning. Tests include: Negative...

    So I dug through the old forum posts looking for a strategy that was successful in dust collection on a table saw and i saw this thread where Marvs setup seemed to be the way to go.. however the images aren't appearing so I'm asking anew. My situation: I have one of the current model Dewalt...

    I have been enjoying my rebuilt and repainted Powermatic model 65 table saw for the past well over a year. All of a sudden in the last couple of days the circuit breaker has begun tripping. As well, I have discovered a sound that wasn't there before. It has worsened and now, after coming to...

    I'm installing ducting for my small shop system and can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I will soon buy a remote for my 240 v., 2 hp Grizzly collector. I been told the "Long Ranger" is a good choice. Grizzly has one for less money that may be good as well. This isn't a production...

    Anyone here know of a good circular saw that has good dust collection capability? I am thinking about one where a shop vacuum would attach to it to suck up the sawdust while sawing: at least 99% of it. Accurate, smooth cuts are also a must. About the 7.25" to 8" size, I would think. But any...
