dust collection for tools with links
this is for anyone who has tools but hasn't throw out cash for a dust collection system. It' called a cyclone system and it can be made for very little. I built one to connect to my saws and sanders and I think I have about 20 bucks in it(mine is a smaller unit though) and it works great. I had my doubts as to how happy I would be with it, but it really does work fantastic and I can't praise it enough. I went with it because it can be made from just about anything, there are no special filters, and if your poor like me a little creative thinking can make it fairly cheap. It also doesn't let the smaller particles escape, this first link is to a guys page that has a lot of useful info as well as his reason for building one, (i'm not sure if he actually designed it or not)
this second link is to an Australian woodworking forum were alot of the members have built them and they have posted pics, you'll have to search the forum for cyclone dust collection for the threads
hope some of you can get some use from this..
