Our shop needs *real* dust collection. Here lies the start of plans to rectify that.

Dust Collector

A whole room dust filter may also be in order.

Ducting

6" sewer & drain pipe http://www.lowes.com/pd_5752-1814-S/M+06006++0600_4294765358__?productId=3134721&Ns=p_product_qty_sales_dollar%7C1&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNs%3Dp_product_qty_sales_dollar%7C1&facetInfo=

Automating this stuff

No one will use it if it doesn't turn on automatically. It *must* be automatic. I've read that using less than 3" ducts with a large 15-16" blower is a problem.

I drew up some plans based on these resources:

This is a 2.5" duct, 'cause I originally planned to use the shop vac. The hole can just be enlarged to 3" w/o other changes. For 4" or 6" gates, the plates should be enlarged, and linkages will probably need lengthening. I made a lot of paper models to get the geometry right. Someone with experience modelling moving parts with CAD could probably do the scaling more quickly. Blast gate front.svg

Machines that need collection

  • Table saw (needs retrofit 6" pipe inside and out, maybe 5" and an overhead 3" collector)
  • Jointer
  • Mitre saw (needs a shroud built)
  • Bandsaw (needs front plate of drive wheel replaced with something allowing for collection)
  • Belt/disk sander (probably needs a shroud for the belt, or just a better sander)
  • Planer (could probably use side shrouds)
  • Stationary and pedestal grinders (hot metals)
  • Grinder (cold metals)
  • CNC mini mill.
  • Wood lathe (needs a shroud)
  • Drill presses

While all of these machines need dust/debris collection of some sort. Some of them may be better served by water buckets instead of a central dust vacuum. For instance grinders should have their exhausts feed into a bucket with water in it.

Electrical Needs

The dust collector should be on it's own circuit, switched on by a relay. Switches should be conveniently located near machines, or interlocked to certain machines.
