Dust Collection Work Day - Saturday, July 31st, 2021, 1:00-5:00

Hey woodshop users! let’s plan on having the next Dust Collection Work Day on Saturday, July 31st, 2021 from 1:00pm-5:00pm.

Last weekend we got a fair bit done, we:

  1. Installed the external vent for the cyclone to vent outside,
  2. Installed all the necessary wye fittings in the main duct for each branch, and
  3. Installed the branches leading to the sanders and the bandsaw/jointer.

The goals for this workday will be to:

  1. hang the remaining branches to the router table, planer, miter saw, and drill press/scroll saw
  2. connect the tools we have blast gates and adaptors for
  3. inventory the remaining blast gates and connection parts we require to get every tool connected to dust collection

With the number of duct lines we need to hang, there is room for many hands on this project! 6 to 10 people could easily be put to work, and no prior experience or knowledge is necessary.

I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Just a reminder, the next dust collection workday is next Saturday (one week from tomorrow). I look forward to having a large crew and making big progress! if anyone has additional ladders they coudl bring, that would be very helpful.

Bump! Please come help Saturday!

Tomorrow is the day! Please show up so we can get the rest of our duct runs hung!
