  • Re: Dust Collecter

    :-/ I would think you would want all the suction power you could get so the ability to turn on less than all of the fans would have no real advantage. Just wire them all together. That also eliminates purchasing and mounting separate switches for each fan. Make sure the wire you use is rated for more than the sum of the amps drawn by each fan. I would also wire nut AND tape each termination to keep the dust out of the connections. Keep the fans, switches, and terminations clean, free from dust accumulation as the dust is a source of ignition if something overheats. Your dust collector could become a flame thrower!

    Also, make sure the fuse or circuit braker that carries the juice to the combined fans is of the proper amprige.

      I'm setting up a woodworking shop and would be interested in systems for dust control. Missed the ? on this post. Any advice? Thanks!

        Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

        OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
