  1. Appreciate the replies. Shop vac it is. Thanks!
  2. I'm running an Oneida dust collection system with 6" hard piping. At one port I've attached the Dust Right 4" system which works great as a vacuum as well as when I attach it to my Dewalt planner. Dual usages which is great. Today I was doing some biscuit joining and the collection bag was jamming up causing a problem. I'd like to attach a hose to the 1 1/2" port on the joiner. Rockler has a kit that will work that plugs into a shop vac. They also have an adapter that would accept the 2 1/2" shop vac end on one side AND the Dust Right 4" on the other. So I would be going from 6" to 4" to 2 1/2" to 1 1/2" . Am I going to be disappointed in how much material this setup is going to pull? The joiner and I'm guessing a router would be the same in that they don't really blow the chips with much force so I'll be relying on the sucking power of the system to keep things clean. Appreciate any help. Thanks!
  3. The Schedule 40 coupler did not fit into the inlet of the Oneida. I purchased a rubber fernco that looks like it will work. Still need the 4" adapter with threaded hose end. Does anyone have an amazon part that they have used? The one from Grizzly is for a Schedule 40 pipe which I don't think will work with thin wall PVC? I've got these two.. Any idea which one has a better chance of fitting? :) Thanks.
  4. Thanks for the replies. I already purchases 6" blast gates which fit great with the 6" SDR35 pipe. I also have the 6" to 4" SDR reducers. I have a thin wall 4" PVC pipe that fit inside the reducer and could use that as long as the flex hose will fit over it. Waiting on delivery of the flex hose. I would prefer something with threads on it which should hold the hose on the fitting more secure. I am aware of some of the differences between SDR35 and SCH40. First one that caught my attention was the price.. I'm actually heading out tomorrow with the inlet section of my Oneida V3000. Just got delivered yesterday. Someone posted where they used a 6" to 6" adapter that fit snug into the Oneida inlet port. The 6" to 6" SDR adapter is too small..rattles around. Guess the next problem....I mean challenge... if the Schedule 40 fits the Oneida inlet port adapting the Sch40 to the SDR35 pipe. I'm seeing a big rubber Fernco connector in my future.
  5. Can someone share what part they used to connect 4" PVC to 4" flex hose? Right now I have a 6" to 4" SDR reducer with bells on both ends. Would like to have a connector that I can screw on a 4" flex hose. Can either fit into the bell of the 4" or I can put a short piece of 4" pvc into the bell and then insert the adapter. I purchased one on Amazon and it doesn't fit. Instead of trial and error I figured I'd ask the group. Thanks for the help!
  6. Thanks. I did find an irrigation supplier in town. Been driving past them for years and never knew what they sold. I picked up the SDR 35 piping and fittings along with a 6" coupler. If it doesn't fit when the DC arrives I'll take the coupler and blower with me and exchange for something that does. Would be so much easier if they made these all industry standard..
  7. Does Oneida provide any coupon codes for free shipping or % off on their DC system? Figured I'd ask before order. Thanks
  8. Sounds perfect. Did you run schedule 40 or sewer and drain pipe? Just realized the couplers would be different size based on pipe used.
  9. I’ve Decided on the Oneida V3000 dust collection system. The inlet port is 7 inches and I want to connect it to 6 inch PVC pipe. The 6 “ side should be a female connection and the 7” side should be a male connection. Anyone know of a source for this? Adapting PVC to DC duct plumbing seems to be a challenge Thanks.
  10. I took another look at the Oneida's V-3000 system and I was sold. I was trying to decide between building my own using a 2hp Grizzly blower or getting the Jet JCDC 3hp setup and neither one was satisfying what I was looking for. I felt the Jet was the better of those two options but seeing how much dust makes it into the filter just didn't seem right. The V-3000 seems to have everything I was thinking about building into my own system. Yea it doesn't come cheap BUT I know I'll be happier in the long run. I really do appreciate everyone's help! Wasn't an easy decision for me to figure out on my own..
  11. Thanks. I don't like the short cyclones either. Guessing that's why users are seeing more dust in the filter collector. I'm installing in my basement so I do have height restrictions. Building my own had me excited and I feel it might even do a better job but not over confident it will be strong enough for the distance I have to run. I'm pushing the limits of what I want to spend too. Started out with the HF unit and HF with mods and now a 3hp 2 stage system. Once I got on this slide I couldn't stop. I'm leaning heavy towards the Jet JCDC 3hp. system. They are also on sale for 10% off and free shipping until Monday so I'm giving myself the weekend to come to grips with it. I figure the 2hp should work and the 3hp will definitely work. Rather do overkill for a couple bucks more than be sorry I didn't get it. Is there ever a problem with going bigger on the collector?
  12. So instead of building my own system.. which I haven't thrown out yet.. I started looking at cyclone systems. Jet has two that look interesting. Their 2hp model states 938 CFM with a 6" inlet. Their 3hp model states 1240 CFM with an 8" inlet. I have to believe that reducing the 8" inlet to a 6" will decrease the CFM but should increase the sucking or velocity? So in the end you might end up with two machines producing the same CFM BUT the 3hp will have more sucking power at the tool?
  13. Appreciate the response. Blower will create X negative pressure in the pipe. Negative pressure is the removal of air which causes the sucking. . Losses in the system, tight bends and leaks and such will decrease the negative pressure causing less sucking power.. The size or ability of the same blower to create the amount of negative pressure will fluctuate based on the size of the pipe. So if the blower has a 6" inlet rated at 1500 CFM and you connect a 6" pvc main line pipe straight out of the blower inlet for 30' and at the end of that 30' you should still have about 1500 CFM and X amount of suction? If you cap off or blast gate close the 6" pipe you will create a maximum negative pressure that the blower can produce. Open the 6" blast gate and you flood the negative pressure with 6" of air. Lots of air but will get minimum or the same X amount of suction. Reduce the end of the 6" to a 4" pipe and you reduce the amount of air feeding the negative pressure. Because it's a smaller diameter it's going to produce more suction trying to feed the negative pressure so you should get greater suction than the original X. Am I on the right track? I don't think so cause I'm still confused... So why does the CFM go down at the end of the 4" pipe if it's sucking more air at a greater speed. If I open my outside water faucet all the way I can fill a bucket in 1 minute. Lots of volume with little pressure. If I spin the nozzle reducing the outlet size it increases the water pressure BUT it still fills the bucket in 1 minute. Same water going through the same hose just at a faster pace. Why wouldn't the 4" duct work that sucking more air at a quicker pace produce the same?
  14. Would linear speed equate to sucking power? So dropping from a 6" pipe to a 4" pipe would increase the sucking power?
