They can greatly impede work flow of the shop, and tripping and falling into a cast iron machine with a spinning blade can really put a damper on your whole day.I designed my shop with the collector unit outside.It keeps the noise outside, saves space in the shop, and makes emptying the dust bin much.
After using such a setup i found the 2 length of hose that was needed was too cumbersome and hard to store.I also had to put new outlets around my previous shop to accommodate tying in to my dust collector.Then i always was having to get special connectors to hook the 2 hose with the larger collector.
I cant tell you how many times i would go over to a tool and make a couple of cuts and never turn the dust collection system on because it was too much of a pain to go over and drag the hose across the room, connect it to that tool and then go back and turn the dust collector on and then turn the tool on.
Something that would make my life easier and my productivity higher.My old method just wasnt working and it drove me crazy.Im partnering with rockler woodworking and hardware to show you how i improved my time in the shop with their dust right 1250cfm dust collector and how you can do the same it doesnt need to be complicated.
From what i understand the cyclone is great to use in conjunction with a dust collector to minimize the dust that makes it into the grizzly bag bonus you see the hose i have.I need something sturdy that i can use coming out of the cyclone into the woodworking equipment 4 ports, which will facility a lot of plugging in out all of the time.
I also have a shopvac with the usual 2.5 hose.The shopvac has more velocity than the dust collector, but overall the dust collector will take in more.Now for another observation i have a 4 to 2.5 adapter and have plugged the shopvac hose onto the dust collector hose i even tried it directly on the dust collector as a test.
Building another mini dust collector my first mini dust collector had a 16x25 filter, but i had the idea of using a 20x25 50x60 cm filter, folded in half, to get more filter area in a smaller box.I cut part of the cardboard frame of this filter to allow it to fold better.
I should note that flexibility comes with a small price.My 2 hp dust collector causes the hose to shorten a little when its turned on.Not a big deal, but you may want to allow for it.I suggest you hook it to the dust collector and leave the other end unconnected.Turn on the dust collector and see how much the hose.
I can put these i have more than one on various power tools band saw, disk sander, jointer, etc.And have the ability to just move my dust right hose from tool to tool especially since i am in a small shop and all big tools are on wheels so they get used in the center of the shop for the most part and the hose can be centrally located.
Making a dewalt sander work with a bosch or festool dust hose.And now my dust hose works with one more tool.I wouldnt want to run my shop vac for a long sanding session because it gets a bit warm and its suction is a bit too much for sanding, but the big dust collector is pretty choked up because of the tiny opening inside the.
Here i ran a 6 port from below into a shop made hood, and ran a short section of hose off the tools dust port, directing that dust toward my duct.This is perhaps the hardest tool to capture dust from, especially for sliding saws, so you will want put some thought into this one.
Or make a short section of pipe or metal duct to put on the inlet of your dust collector.Attach your dust collector hose on the other end.You can attach the manometer tube to the short section of pipe.You can also look at the blog i recently post about measurements.The schematics show where i connected on my.
It would go nowhere, except to prove that scientists, like most of us, fail to agree on much of anything.In short, you will continue to see all sides weigh in.You want my opinion my own shop dust collection system is piped with 4 plastic sewer pipe, which, by the way, is abs, a plastic both tougher and more flexible than pvc.
In most cases, yes but the cyclones efficiency will vary based on whether your vacuum is also turned on.The dust deputy cyclone needs a consistent airflow rate to spin the dust out of the airstream if your tools fan blower is pushing air in while your vacuum is also sucking air out, this can disrupt the airflow rate and reduce the cyclones separation performance.
