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

Dust Collector



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 drew up some plans based on

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
