    For sure Alan, I didn't mean to imply you wouldn't have a consideration for the make-up, just that I don't think its a 2K ACFM consideration for your 5HP DC. Now your fan for finishes may move that...

    My last shop was very small, less than a 1 car garage. While things were on casters, there was no room to move things around in there. I even had the DC piped and it was stationary, there just...

    What is 2.5 SF? Your collector may be rated 1850 CFM but it likely won't pull that much flow when connected to your system. For a 5HP unit, I would target 800 ACFM and run 6" everywhere. If you...

    Best scenario is to be able switch between filters and venting outside. I'm in TN and we have a lot of humidity. I like to work with the doors open in Spring, Fall, and most of summer, but I like...

    The company I work for does custom dust collection equipment for industrial applications. Not the same as a woodworking / homebuilding business but there are some conceptual similarities. I size...

    In regards to ducting thickness required, it depends on the negative pressure in the branch/system, not necessarily the collector capability. However, best practice is to design for the max pressure...

    My first question would be do you have enough DC to deliver 1400 CFM? Maybe you do if you don't have a cyclone? That is what it will take in an 8" line to keep the dust flowing without dropping out...

    Aside from the shop conditioning issue, there should be a noticeable performance increase in your DC system. You should get better suction at the hoods/machines, collecting more of the dust, and it...

    If you have any neighbors, you may not want to point the exhaust at them due to noise. If horizontal exhaust, make a 45 miter cut on end and put on bird screen. If you go vertical, you can use a...

    I would err toward farther away than too close. I used mine primarily for finger boards. I made my jigs to ride the fence.

    Make sure the table is waxed. Even if the saw is aligned correctly, friction on the table makes it hard to push.

    You can make a simple water manometer graduated in inches of water, or you can buy a Dwyer Magnehelic gauge, 0-2"wg should be fine for DP across a filter. A 0-5"wg would probably work too, but I...

    I noticed those too. I would want the flat side toward the work piece. If that's the case, then you have to raise them the full thickness of the head to rotate them. That is a problem if the...

    Hi Fred,
    First, I would isolate the two areas as much as possible, sounds like you have done that to a large extent. Your appliances (water heater and furnace) will likely draw all their air from...

    How thick of a face veneer do you typically use? I’m doing some doors that are barn door arrangement but not the rustic style. I think I almost got the veneer too thin on the stave cores. I’m doing...

    Just keep the two areas isolated from each other. I assume at top of the stairs goes into the house? Is that the door with 1” gap at bottom? You could always add louvers in that door.

    Still not...

    I just replaced a 4” recessed light in the house with an LED lamp. The lamp had controls that allow you to adjust color (2300-5k) I think. I wonder if any of the “shop-style” fixtures have that?

    Is it possible you may need new filters? For $125, they may be counting on the replacement filter sales.

    Need a good seal from clean to dirty side regardless.

    I plane to final thickness and usually start with 120 grit. When you dry assemble before glue, also look to see what is going to be hard to sand after assembly. I do very little sanding, if any,...

    Angle the board on the sled and tilt the blade. Probably use a different sled so you don’t mess up the zero clearance when blade is 90.

    Could also use a miter gauge with the blade tilted?

    If cutting the 50 pieces, I would use the tablesaw with sled every time. Even if accuracy is the same, it will be faster and I’m not start/stopping a miter saw motor 50 times.

    If I was doing 8-10...

    Not to detract, but how do the new Jorgensen clamps (parallel and bar clamps) compare to the ones made in USA? I really like the Jorgensen clamps compared to the other brands.
