    I recently upgraded my shop with an automated dust collection system that includes automated blast gates, automated switch the dust collector, and remote controls. At the same time I piped the shop with PVC thin wall pipe and added a floor sweep! Check it out. YouTube Link: Automated Dust...

    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...

    I am getting a Harbor Freight dust collector this weekend. (20% off Coupon will be valid valentines day weekend). Anyway, I know it comes with a fabric bag that is not very efficient. I am going to modify the collector with a Thien baffle with trashcan. The problem is I just can't afford a...

    I have long been very frustrated by the above table dust collection arrangement on my TS. The dust chute was supported by the riving knife, and to make this possible, the knife was around 1.5" taller than the blade, so you had to take the knife off to be able to use a crosscut sled etc. Taking...

    Hi Gang, I recently purchased a Ridgid R4510 for my woodworking hobby. I chose this over a cabinet saw for a couple reasons. One is that my shop is very small and I can fold this saw up against the wall. I can also roll it out (with some difficulty) up the basement steps and into the yard if I...

    Well, we have finally moved back to sunny New Mexico from dreary, cold Chicago. We are now in the process of finding the right contractor to build our new garage/workshop and cannot wait for it to be built. I have moved my Craftsman shop vac from tool to tool as needed for years and want to...

    Here is what I finally came up with for a Walker-Turner bandsaw. I cut off part of a plumbing "j-trap" and cut the clearance slot on the table saw. The wood that fits in the cast webbing has flat magnets epoxied to hold the whole assembly in place. Hooked up to a shop-vac. It is VERY...

    It is past time that I set up dust collection in my basement I have a miter saw, lathe, jointer, table saw, and planer. I've been using a broom and shop vac. Here is my thinking and please tell me if I should change it. I am thinking to buy a dust collector possibly a delta 50-760...

    I've narrowed down the best choices for my shop dust collectrion system to either the JDS 3100K or the Oneida 3HP Smart dust collector. They both would do a good job in my environment but have different key features. Does anyone have experience with either of these machines or seen a...

There was nothing I could find as far as reviews online. Need some input. There dust collection systems...

    I've had an issue for a long time and I'm wondering if anyone has an idea for a solution. For several years I have had a small shop in my unfinished basement and its probably obvious that the ventilation in awful. Whenever I am routeing, ripping on the tablesaw, doing any kind of serious...

    How can I get a 20 amp dust collector with an induction motor to only use 15 amps? Also, how can I measure how much current I am using? I ordered a heavy-duty speed control from MLCS Had 2 questions: Is there any reason this shouldn't be used with an induction motor (I know nothing about...

    Okay! So I have a Workshop in my shed outside my house, It's about 18' by 11' with a porch on it. I have mostly benchtop tools to conserve space. I recently purchased a small dust collector to cut down on dust in the place. I just had a few questions that some of you may be able to help me...

    I'm curious in the members' response to this. If you were setting up a woodworking shop from scratch, what is your list of tools to buy, if one is trying to do this on a budget? Which would you buy first, which one next and so on. Also, when it comes to dust collection, should I make that my...

    I read alot about building your own air filtration unit from a box fan or furnace blower but I am still looking at manufactured one to get the extra features like timers, etc. I think that if build your own and buy 2 or more levels of filters and bags or electrostatic filters you are...

    Hello: I recently got a table saw with a router table built into one of the cast iron wings. It uses the rip fence of the saw as a fence, but I want to construct a fancier, more functional fence for the router to mount to the saw's rip fence. I am thinking about dust collection, and I plan on...
