My Cyclone dust collection system build.

My Cyclone dust collection system build.

I built this Cyclone dust extraction system in 2006, Its Bill Pentz Designed Cyclone,
I had a lot of fun building this project, and it works really well, It took me about 6 months off and on to complete. Its an important part of my workshop.
Here is a link to his site where the plans for the cyclone came from http://billpentz.com//woodworking/cyclone/CyclonePlan.cfm There is a lot really good information on Dust collection.

Thanks Jay,  I started looking at a better dust collection system than what I had around 2004, I spent the next couple of years researching and built this in 2006, and I really like how well it works, Its something that is an important part of my workshop when I am using my larger machines. for my hand tools I use my mini cyclone.

Wow Al, You have completed a difficult project in a very nice looking and efficient manner using very little of your useable floor space.  Looks as if you are well on your way to saving your health from breathing all that lung and respiratory damaging dust.  This is something that I have yet to totally build to my satisfaction and is something I have been planning and needing to get done for a long time now. 

Thanks to you you have given me some very good ideas and will be definately be knowledge that I will use.  You  have completed a very well put together package of documentation of how to build a complicated system that will be appreciated by others as well as myself.  Nice job and thank you for sharing such a necessary item in the woodworkers life.  Have a great week.

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
