  • Dust Hoods (how to keep in place)

    Now that I have a dust collector, I want to start doing some intarsia. I just purchased a dust hood to put behind my flex drum sander.

    My problem is, when I put the hood behind the sander it doesn't seem to stay and I guess it's because of how heavy the 4 inch hose is. Does anyone have any tips, tricks or some kind of fix to make the hood stay put? My shop is small so I cannot affix any permanent tubing or hoods behind each machine. I have to keep things portable. Thanks for your help.

    I'd get an old floor fan to convert or build something out of 2" x 2" like this.

          Not my idea actually. A local toool company sells them but for $100.00. I figure it is almost as easy to make my own.

              I admit it... I splurged on a new "toy"

              So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
              I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!
              In a small shop I couldn't live without the mobile base.
              I also added the...

              Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

              Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
