  • Dust collector

    Sometime back a post was on here (I think) of plans for making a dust collector out of a five gallon bucket I need one for a wood lathe. does anyone remember? I don't know if it was this site or another, old age seems to be catching up.

      If you're willing to spend the money rather than the time, I would recommend the Dust Deputy: http://www.oneida-air.com/category.a...-B5C357DFE131}
      I have three at work on 5 gallon pails, on a table saw, band saw, and panel saw (no central system ). I have one at home on a 25 gallon fiber barrel. But, I'm not sure how well the small ones would work on a wood lathe. You might need one with a higher air flow volume to catch the flying chips.

        I guess it will depend upon how much turning you do but with wood a 5 gallon bucket will fill up pretty quick. My dad's wood shop uses a Grizzly duct collections system attached to his table saw, planer and joiner and it fills a 55 gallon garbage barrel pretty quickly with wood chips. It may be worth looking into something bigger for both air volume and capacity.

          Ohh... i missed the word 'lathe'.
          If you have not done alot of lathe woodworking, you might be in for a surprise in the amount of chips it can create (and the direction they fly)... myself, i used to use a shovel and garbage bag, then i boxed off a corner of the basement and dont bother cleaning... makes for a nice soft floor to stand on. When sanding i use a homemade trash can collector and shop-vac (my real dust collector is too far away) like posted in the links above, but for anything else theres just too many chips to be cleaning.

            Those are exactly what I was looking for, I turn pens and small bowls so I don't need a huge system don't have room for it anyway. This will help a lot thanks. I googled last night for a while and missed all those.

              I am with KMoffet.....The Dust Deputy works awesome for me on my sandblaster (NO dust)......It works so well I am going to build (2) doghouses to enclose vacuums with the cyclones for outside of my house. Then ridged pvc pipe to the side of the house----then a gate valve to flexible pipe to use on my pellet stoves for clean outs!!!

                I have one for my wood shop- works a treat. With a big Ridgid vacuum, it will keep up with the sawdust from a 6" jointer. The sawdust compacts in the bucket- it holds a lot more than you would think.

                Disclaimer: my nephew is an engineer at Oneida Air Systems. But I'd own one if he didn't.
