  1. Thanks! Yes, it’s epoxy. I’ve already sanded it up to 2000, which is why I taped over it while I was sanding down the walnut.
  2. I’m making a waterfall river table with a walnut slab I found with some really unusual grain, what I like to call crotch rot. The slab was cut from the trunk of a tree, where a limb was growing from, and the slab was an unusual shape with holes throughout the piece. So, I ended up cutting it in half, flip the live edges towards one another, and I had to flip one side 180 degrees in order for it to be the size I wanted. I’ve already filled the voids with epoxy, along with the center “river” portion. I’ve also sanded the epoxy down to 2000 grit and taped over it so I can focus on the wood finish. I’ve gone over it with 220 grit sandpaper in some areas and a cabinet scraper in most since the grain is unusual. Just for testing purposes, I had another piece of walnut that I applied different finishes to. I applied some with grain filler in some spots, BLO, shellac, etc, but since this table with be in my living room where people can set drinks, etc, I don’t think shellac will be durable enough, especially since some of these drinks will be alcohol. Does anyone have any suggestions how I should finish this walnut and seal the grain so it’ll be durable enough for everyday use?
  3. Thanks! I’m planning to mount the blower on the wall and setup the SDD directly beneath it.
  4. Do you think it would be best to use the Super Dust Deputy, which will require reducing a 6” pipe to a 4” pipe, or eliminate the Super Dust Deputy and run 6” all the way?
  5. After years of using a ShopVac with a Dust Deputy, I finally decided to upgrade my dust collection system to something more designed for dust collection. My new Jet DC-1200VX arrived on Friday, so while I’m waiting for the electrician to install my 220 outlet, I want to get my piping in place. I was planning to hookup my Super Dust Deputy between the dust collector and my tools since I have a nice big container that it sits on, and it does a great job of collecting all the material before getting to the dust collector, keeping the filter clean of debris, but I have a question about doing this. My Super Dust Deputy has a 4” inlet and outlet and my Jet DC-1200VX can use either a 6” outlet or 2-4” outlets, I was planning to use the 6”. If I use a 6” to 4” adapter to connect the Jet to the Super Dust Deputy, should I also use 4” PVC for my runs or will I get better flow using 6” PVC? Now I’m wishing I would have bought the Super Dust Deputy with the larger intake, but that probably wouldn’t have worked very well while I’ve been using my ShopVac. The reason I’ve been considering running 4” PVC is because the Super Dust Deputy has a 4” inlet and outlet, and it seems to me that running 6” PVC after being reduced to 4” would be a waste. Am I correct? Another thought would be to not use the Super Dust Deputy and run 6” PVC directly from the Jet, but the Super Dust Deputy has worked so well I would hate to not use it, especially since I already have it. Does anyone have any suggestions on setting this up for optimal performance? Thanks!
