    That’s super frustrating. I ended up wasting a lot of time and effort trying to troubleshoot. At least changing out a breaker is really easy :-).

    That's really weird. Do you have another 220V device you could test out the Long Ranger with?

    I just got done setting up my DC system with a modified Harbor Freight DC, and really like the 110V...

    I recently built an outfeed table for my tablesaw. Since I added a router insert to the far side of it, I wanted to be able to adjust it perfectly level with my tablesaw so material I push through...

    Thanks Jim.

    Final update if anyone is curious - I finally changed out the new breaker today. No problems at all with the new one in place! Goes to show you that brand new breakers can have...

    Well I think I had a double whammy with a bad capacitor as well as a potentially bad breaker. Just my luck. For those that have been following along, here's the latest:

    1) I got a new capacitor...
  6. Understood, Jim. I can try plugging it into my...

    Understood, Jim. I can try plugging it into my other new 20a circuit and see what happens. Could be a bad breaker, although brand new. I think the tests on the capacitor show that I at least have a...
  7. It does seem like your calculations make sense,...

    It does seem like your calculations make sense, but I don't trust the "20amp peak" on the HF unit. Also, others I've seen on the web with the same Rikon impellor I'm using have measured the current...

    It's instantaneous. I flip the switch and the breaker pops.

    A couple of updates today:
    1) The dust collector wouldn't even turn on today. Just blows the breaker immediately upon switching it on. As I mentioned above, yesterday it would blow at first...

    So today I opened the motor up as far as I could without taking piping off and removing this beast from the wall (which isnít much). Wiring in the switch looks good, the capacitor looks fine, and...

    That is really good info that you donít have the tripping problem. Iím starting to wonder if the centrifugal switch is bad on my unit. I did buy it used for only like $30 :-) and itís definitely seen...

    The new impeller is definitely bigger and heavier and many YouTube videos Iíve watched have documented the additional current draw (and additional performance!). I have not heard of issues like Iíve...

    Mine actually does have a label on it. I donít see how to add a pic here but the label says:

    Central Machinery model #45378 Dust Collector 70g, 2hp
    Motor: 2hp, 20 amps peak, single phase 60 Hz,...

    Interesting, ok. I did run 12ga copper wire and thought about that potential solution but thought I may have to run new 10ga to do that. You think the 12ga would be ok do ya? Another situation is I...

    Thanks, thatís really helpful info about closing the blast gates and goes against what I intuitively thought (Iím used to my shop vac screaming at me when it gets clogged, and figured this would be...

    Sorry, the HF unit runs on 120v.

    Ok thanks Sean. I was hoping to keep the noise down a bit for my family (this is in the 3rd stall in my garage) but can keep it running when I know Iíll be bouncing from machine to machine. Seems...

    Ok interesting. Thanks. I have this thing wall mounted up next to my garage door rails and it would be a total bear to take down. Any tips to finding and lubing the centrifugal switch should I decide...
  19. Harbor Freight Dust Collector circuit pops

    I added a dedicated 20 amp circuit after picking up a used HF DC. I installed an upgraded impeller from Rikon so I know power draw will be a bit more than stock, but many on the web have done this...

    Can you clarify what you mean by outside routing, and how do you attach your router to the track? Iím considering a track saw, but if there are other uses for the track I wasnít considering that...

    What does the 6 degree negative hook mean?

    I just picked up my first table saw (Craftsman 22124 used) so know nothing about blades. Would one of these 10 inch combo or finish blades serve me well?...
