    Thanks Matt. I was the Australian agent for Clearvue and introduced the product to Oz with success but the current agent has been forced to stop importing due to transport costs. We are now finding...

    A comment and a question, if the cyclone is exhausting to atmosphere then I have found a typical Grizzly style short cone works as well as a long cone and the exhaust debris are not noticeable.

    With no disrespect to Matt his post illustrates my point regarding how we look at sizing dust extractors. In the great big scheme of things 1-1/2HP tells us very little about the flow capacity...

    As long as the HP is adequate to turn the impeller at full speed the HP is not the important factor, the impeller size is. If a 13" impeller is driven by a 3HP motor or a 5HP motor both at full speed...

    1000 fps is the delta that Bill Pentz arrived at and it has become the default number that is aimed. Actually my statement on 6" is what we use in Oz because 7" is not available here in any shape or...

    1000 FPS is easy to get, use 6" duct and ports on the machine and a 15" impeller at 60hz/3450RPM and the job is done. No magic is involved, it simply works.

    On a closed cabinet like a bandsaw it is all about making sure there is an additional port allowing replacement air in at the same rate as the extracted air.

    I should clarify what I wrote above, when I say 3 phase I am saying that a three phase motor is used by utilising a VFD from a single phase power supply. I was able to introduce Clearvue Cyclones to...

    Yes, but the option is still there using any three phase DE. If Oneida were really serious they would not sell single phase machines at all as they clearly have internal VFD's that does the job. I...

    That can be done automatically with a VFD if it is programmed correctly. I did a commercial installation where the system did exactly that but don't ask me how the programming was done because I...

    Any 3 phase dust extractor with a VFD will do exactly the same thing including Cleavue. Personally I would not buy a single phase dust extractor if you gave me the money and I can't understand why...

    Everyone has their own individual take on our approach to working but I think most of us tend to over complicate things and be to clever for our own good. When I started out using the F&F jig it was...

    Here are the pics of how I can set up a parallel guide using two fences and a length of aluminium extrusion. It can have a low or high position which could be an advantage as well.

    The problem with that is I can't see how it helps to have a measurement system on the F&F jig if the rip fence is used as a stop and my rip fence has a Wixey on it with a fine adjuster on the rip...

    In that case use a 15" impeller and if you need any more at any time wind up the VFD to 70hz. This is the approach I use but the one disadvantage is the extra noise generated. A 16" impeller can be...
