  • 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.

                    Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                    That is...

                    The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                    Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                    Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                    Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                    Now,...
