    Basement Shop in Floyd - More Progress - Dust Collection

    Made a lot of progress in the last week or so after the 4 day power outage and the 15" of snow a few weeks ago.

    I got the Dust Collection Ductwork installed. I took a hint from Jeremy and Bill Clemmons as to how to install the main run. It is 6" snap together duct from Lowes. I used furring strips that I cut a 1/2" x 3/8" deep dado in. These were screwed into the rafters and then zip ties used to hang the duct. Turned out to be super easy compared to using the hanging straps normally used for the purpose. Took 24" zip ties to go around the 6" ductwork.




    The ductwork all feeds back to the Laguna 2HP Cyclone.





    First drop is the big Band Saw then the Table Saw (2-1/2" above and 4" below).



    Then we hit the Jointer and Planer drop.



    And around the corner to the Drum Sander, band Saw and disc sander. The Router table will be moved over to that portion of the shop as soon as I finish unpacking boxes and installing cabinets.



    I'm still cluttered and still unpacking but it is coming along.

    The lathe has its own small DC right next to it.

    Nice progress, Ken. Looking good.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    The play house is looking good. By the way; what model is your Laguna dust collector? What is the horsepower? Thanks.

    Great job. Looks really good. How does the 2 1/2” hose work on the top of the tablesaw. Got a pix?

    It's the 2HP Model. I got a great deal on it from one of our members. It was a year old but never used so I got a new unit at a used price.

    I like it a lot - works really well with the 6" main duct and 4" drops. Very easy to empty and the "full" sensor makes knowing when to do that easy.

    Thought I had a pic of it but can't find it. I'll have to take one. It basically attaches to the back of the blade quard. One of the better features of the SawStop is the good dust collection (above and below) and the easily changeable blade guard and riving knife.
