  1. Alright . I'm not very tech savvy as it turns out .It flew over my head , and I wondered each time I heard it . Thanks .
  2. I don't want anybody to violate a sacred secret , but what is Marc talking about with the Q. O. S. ?

    I was leery of the price . Almost too good to be true .

    that is very interesting . what are it's limitations ? I looked at the link and I was not sure .
  5. Hand plane ? Powered planer ? What exactly is the question ?
  6. how do you like the Jet 10/20 drum sander ? I think it might work for me , but wondered how others felt .
  7. Glad to see it . It will lower the fine dust levels getting to the bags . If you can replace some of the flex hose w/ pipe , you will see improvement even more .
  8. The old version of Wood Talk got to be a hassle to keep on You Tube . Is that still the case ? I assume that nothing has changed , but I have not heard , either way .
  9. I am curious what specific 3 HP collector you have , and what you will be hooking up to ? Is it lathe only ? If space is getting tight , have you considered a shop built cyclone . Saves room compared to a 3 HP DC with a Dust Deputy/ Barrel sitting nearby . Hundreds of them on YouTube to consider . Might work for you .
  10. My first shop built cyclone used the cyclone in Tom's post . Had a 2HP grizzly blower , worked great w/ 6' PVC ducts . I also wonder if he is still in business ? I think it was $200 or so . It was less than a Dust Deputy XL . Anyway I traded it for my daughters first car to my buddy , about 2 yrs. ago .
  11. The Grizzly Growler is a poorly designed cyclone. Period. It is way too short for it's diameter and length . It also has a 7" exhaust out the top side- again , too big given it's size . It could be modified , but I'd buy the Super Dust Deputy XL . It will work great with a 3 HP 2-bagger .I almost bought it , just for the barrel , with plans to modify it .Oneida is really good , that carried the day for me .
  12. I have had a few 1HP collectors , and I currently use 2 " Duststoppers " in workstations I've built . For the investment of a 4" to 2" reducer , I would see how they did together . Collecting from a lathe is something I've never done.
  13. I would wonder about using 6" to 4" reducer from the top of the dust deputy to the 6" inlet on the blower . I don't know on that cyclone how it might change your CFM . Leaving the blower opening at 6" will pull more air , but what will the smaller dust deputy move thru it ? A reducer is about $12.00 , but in your situation I would try that . Who knows ?
