    The concept and method of separation Harvey is using is nothing new. In one application I'm aware of, the air intakes of helicopters have used similarly functioning centrifugal separators since the...

    Bill,

    You are expecting too much if you are hoping for very fine dust collection from a "bucket" separator. I tried both large and small versions of what you built and the results were about he...

    Added an under table pick-up to my Jet 18'. A manifold made from MDF, an HVAC fitting and some PVC pipe. Manifold outlet is 6", it fits over the stock 4" port in the lower wheel housing. Better...

    +1 on the UpULA loader. My thumbs would never have survived pushing 17 rounds into a Glock magazine over and over again.

    Interesting that many have not found floor sweeps convenient. I use mine frequently, but I will admit, not every time. I have a shop vac hooked up to a Dust Deputy and use it for some cleanup. My DC...

    Scott,

    You should be able to get a replacement filter from Wynn Environmental, (there are other sources as well), that would work with your machine. Give them a call, they are knowledgeable about...

    I used a 35 gallon trash can on my Super Dust Deputy cyclone. If you have a choice, buy the can with the thickest metal you can get. I didn't even try to use the metal lid since I was convinced it...

    I'm guessing it would do no harm and would probably increase the flow through the blower. Was there a hose from the blower exhaust leading to the filter on this unit? If so, that's the reason for the...

    Tony,

    The best practice is to run a 6" duct from your Laguna to the port on the machine. Have the port on the machine sized at 6", or use multiple ports to approximate the 6" area. For example,...

    Within limits, increasing the pipe size will improve the airflow rate through a pipe. It's dependent on several things like the blower capability, roughness of the interior walls, sharp bends, etc....

    I've got one of the older Fein Turbo II's and it is the most powerful vacuum I own. I always have to be careful when loose tools, nuts, bolts, etc. are around and I'm vacuuming the bench. I wish they...

    +1 on adding a small cyclone (Dust Deputy, Clearvue, or other) to the inlet on your shop vac. It will reduce the "suction" a bit, but will totally solve the filter plugging issue. I have a washable...

    +1 on the use of a dial indicator. I have metalworking tools as well, so I already had one. They can be had with a magnetic base quite inexpensively nowadays. The first time setting the knives is...

    The adapter that Oneida sent with my Super Dust Deputy, slipped into the inlet with no trouble whatsoever. No extra crimping, cutting, bending, taping needed. As did the big box store fitting I...

    I have a 22-44 and after needing considerable help just to get it up onto the factory stand, I decided it was too heavy to put onto a swiveling or rotating base. It's probably possible, but whatever...

    There are a few smaller dust collectors, but their performance is quite marginal due to small motors and impellers. Rocklers' Dust Right for example. Most dust collectors up to about 2.5HP have close...

    Steve,

    The fitting I used for the Dewalt 734 is commonly called a register boot. It's an HVAC fitting. It sits in the same place as the location of the Dewalt factory dust chute you can see in...

    Carl,

    I've never really carefully measured the amount of bypassed dust, but in six months light use, I never had enough to cover the bottom of the 12" diameter catch bucket. I have a Performax...

    Really excellent work! It's too bad more tool manufacturers wouldn't put a little time and effort into designing really effective dust shrouds for their machines. Even if they were offered as...

    Steve,

    Here is a portable unit I built using a metal SDD+Penn State blower+Wynn filter. You won't need some of the features that allow portability, but it will give you an idea of how compact an...

    Without increasing the impeller size (or efficiency) the only advantage of putting a 3HP in place of the 2HP motor would only give you a cooler running motor. With a 12" impeller, the motor should...

    Another vote for at least an 8" jointer. I bought a Powermatic 6". It's a great tool and works fine, but it's the only tool purchase I regretted. Should have bought at least an 8 incher.
