  1. Collinb - well I Picked up the remote you showed . It is surprisingly small . I almost grabbed it back in March , but finally did it . It is just what I need . Thanks .
  2. wood whisperer did a review not long ago , not super impressed as I recall .
  3. Second point , the Rikon has a bag filter . A cannister is a big upgrade , in CFM and filtration .
  4. I have had 3 1HP machines over the years , and think they are all limited at best . CFM claims are unreliable . If the Dust Right has a bigger impeller , it will move more air . My Rikon has a 9" impeller , and it was the weakest of the 3 I have owned . Have a look at Grizzly also . 650 CFM at the end of a 4" flex line is a reach . If you find one w/ 10" - 11" impeller , you'll get much better results . I'd advise larger DC , even if you had to wait a while . If you expect to be in the hobby long , a 1HP machine will soon be " too small ".
  5. 2 inch hose is for shop vacs/ extractors - not your central DC system . Exceptions are TS over-arm port , router table fence only , possibly under the bandsaw table . Do some research on DC vs. Extraction from small tools , there are differences .
  6. I use 2 in my miter station . 12" DeWalt and a 7 1/4" that can be handy also . That said , I generally then go to the crosscut sled for final sizing . Just depends on what it is .
  7. I gotta say , Meatwad is one of the best "nicknames " I've seen . Well done , welcome .
  8. I did a box for 2 12"x24" filters , from the Jay Bates idea . If it extends the life any , or keeps the internal area cleaner , I'm happy .It sure can't hurt .
  9. Are you hoping for "work stations" w/DC in them , and avoid a large central DC and pipes ? It's possible , but a 1HP collector or the shop vac/dust deputy aren't ideal for everything . Plan well .
  10. 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 .
  11. I don't want anybody to violate a sacred secret , but what is Marc talking about with the Q. O. S. ?

    new remote

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

    new remote

    that is very interesting . what are it's limitations ? I looked at the link and I was not sure .
  14. Hand plane ? Powered planer ? What exactly is the question ?
  15. how do you like the Jet 10/20 drum sander ? I think it might work for me , but wondered how others felt .
  16. 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 .
  17. 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 .
  18. 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 .
  19. 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 .
  20. 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 .
  21. 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.
  22. 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 ?
  23. Being retired makes me cheap and blessed with time on my hands . I'd probably break the bench apart , save all I could (casters , etc. ) , for the next shop furniture build . It's coming I'm sure .
