Thread: Front Loading Dust Collector Interest

  1. Default Small DC units for the CW


    0 Not allowed!
    What small DC systems are some of you running. Right now the closest thing I have for a DC system is a Sears Shop Vac which I do not want to sit there for hours running while I am carving, it would probably burn up by the anyway. I am eventually going to get a big Oneida Gorilla setup in my shop when I get it built. With that said I am thinking of just getting one of the small Squirl cage units $100-$200 that I can use for awhile as a DC for the Carvewright, along with some of my other power tools. Any experiences in what to get or what not to get?

    Thanks

    CaptinKidd,

    I have a 1HP 650 CFM Delta collector for my CW. It runs in the neighborhood of $200.00. I got a little better price than that at Lowe's as it was a floor model.

    It does a great job with the CW when running both my down draft and top mount insert. I do not try to run other equipment with it while carving for a couple of reasons. One being I need to do some electrical re wiring to separate some circuits (isolate my CW) and the other is I do not think my low 650 CFM would support good dust collection for multiple tools at the same time.

    If you are looking at one to use while the CW is running I would look for one that is at least 1000 CFM.. The is my best guess..

    Mine DC is an upright 2 HP about 1700 CFM I sure it is sold at HF for less than 200. I does suck well as well as sucking the power on startup

    I have it on its own breaker at 30 amps

    it has 4 inch inlets X 2 I run 2 CWs with DC hoods and DD tables and still have suck left over for thr planner or whatever

    now with the rocks on it is the most noise making thing running

    I built a simple DD using a squirrel cage off of a furnace and a couple of furnace filters. It gets most of the dust out, just a little clean up after the carve. Need to do some modification to it to get a little more from it.
