  • Bandsaw dust collection

    I know I have replyed to others posts regarding this, but I have forgotten what the post headings were and did not read what other may have responded, so I thought I would start another post.

    Just wondering what you all do for a dust collection to your bandsaw. I have a 14" Delta that does not have a dust shut attachment. I have heard of cutting a hole in the bottom door and hooking a hose to that...pictures would be great if you have them.

    Thanks

        WD,
        That is a nice link. I have the grizzly 14" and they do have a dust port built in. I need to figure out how to get it to step down from a 4" port to let my shop vac attach. I have had no luck finding a step down attachment in this one horse town.

          Grizzly has the step down adapters. Another option is your local big box store with PVC fittings and some creative use of duct tape.

            Rockler has a lot of dust collection accessories and carry those step down adapters you're looking for.

              Had to get a step down adapter myself. As mentioned, Rockler and Woodcraft carry these. Just slice off the end to match your vacuum hose.

              Note to self: measure twice, cut once. Back to Rockler to get another.

                    Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                    And on each cloud touching the body ?
                    I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                    Thanks

                    I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                    Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                    What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                    Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!
