Drum Sander Vacuum Table

Mounting a drum sander on a drill press is a great way to sand the edge of a curved workpiece. But it produces very fine sawdust that is unhealthy to breathe -- and a nuisance. So to cut down on the sawdust, I built an auxiliary drum sander table that works with my shop vacuum.

Downdraft Sanding Table

I could never justify spending $800 to $2000 on something that did not add another capability to my shop, but once I figured out a way to build one for a much lower cost, I realized it is worth whatever it costs.

Dust Collector Port, PVC

Recently when building my own router table and fence, I found that an ordinary 3 inches to 1 PVC reducer works great as a dust collector port.

Sawdust, Take Aim at Power Tool

Rather than invest in shrouds and pipe connections for both my drill press and scrollsaw, I use a stand-mounted boom that adjusts to put suction just where I need it.

Dust Collection Cyclone Barrels, Blind Depth Gauge for

By Grant in Iowa - Since the bin is under vacuum, the small air leaks around the dowel should be insignificant to system efficiency. You can then mark the dowel like a dipstick: Empty, 1/2 full, Full, and Holy schtick!

Dust Control, Box Fan Filter

Like a lot of woodworkers, I made a cheap air cleaner for dust in my shop by attaching a furnace filter to a box fan. I just set the fan on my workbench whenever I am sanding. It works so well that I decided to make a more permanent air cleaner.

Dust Collector Saw Overarm Guard

I spent 18 years breathing sawdust in junior high school wood shops before I started doing mechanical design. When I retired I bought a 2HP dust collector that blew all the fine sawdust back into the shop. Enough was enough.

Trash Can Dust Collection

What I did was replace the loose cloth bag with the sturdier and more convenient combination of a garbage bag inside of a rigid plastic trash can. Thereby reducing the messy job when using the cloth bags.

Flex Hose HookUp

Connecting a 4 inch flexible hose from a dust collector to a shop-made fixture (like the sanding downdraft table shown here) can be a nuisance. To avoid all that fussing around, I used a 4 x 3 inch PVC toilet flange to make a dust-collection port.

Dust bag for Mitersaws, MEGA

Collecting sawdust from some mitersaws is about as efficient as catching a thunderstorm in a shot glass. But the big old bag dust catcher that I built for my mitersaw collects about 90 percent of the debris.

Dust Collector, Make your own

Pictured [at this link] is a very efficient portable unit built from a dryer blower / motor, cotton bag, vent hose and some scrap plywood. A call to your local washing machine repairman should supply you with a source for a used blower/motor combination, the rest is easy.

You can create the same dust-collection capabilities with a shop-built dust table connected to a vacuum system. I used Baltic birch plywood, although veneered ply or even fir plywood would work fine.

Drill Press Table and fence system (PDF)

When I turn to the drill press, it is because I need precisely placed and perfectly straight holes. But the standard, cast iron table will not support anything but the smallest workpiece. Then, trying to clamp a workpiece in place can be a frustrating exercise. And you can forget about dust collection. The table and fence system in ShopNotes No. 94 solves all these problems. It turns your drill press into a precision woodworking tool. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra.

Air Filter for Workshop Computer

After getting a new shop computer, all was happy until the computer case fans started to whine and make way too much noise. Popping the side off the case revealed about half a pound of dust bunnies and that the fans had a thick coat of crud on them. Given that the computer is used in an office attached to an industrial shop, a better solution was needed.

Dust Collection

To make the plastic blast gate housings self-cleaning, I clipped the closed corners, as shown, to give the dust a means of escape. The slight draft through the corner holes when the gate is open does not noticeably take away from the collectors power.
