NRA shill who thinks homeless people would love to live in migrant border camps. Help me realize I am a bigoted piece of shit.

I have it, it works fine. I have no experience with other dust collectors so I don't really know what if anything I'm missing out on. I remember the assembly being a bit frustrating; I think there were some very similarly-shaped bolts/screws, and some kind of fiddly bits that were tricky to hold in place while getting the connectors connected. But it's held up well through a few years of intermittent use.

Groovy. Anticipating making it a 2-stage and having it live on the 2-car side of the garage with the piping coming through the wall to my shop, where space is a premium. Getting tired of emptying the shop vac after each hour of routing/dadoing.

I should investigate how big a pain in the rear end it would be to make fireplace “logs” from the chips/dust.

Can you use an old engine block and hydraulic press to make large wood pellets?

Speaking of dust collectors, has anyone experience with the harbor freight 2hp model?

May soon pull the trigger on it, after I track down a discount coupon.

The only thing I can tell you about this one is it's a white labelled chinese import; I saw it show up under half a dozen different brands when I went looking recently. So it's absolute bargain basement, but with an advantage that you can just buy whichever version is cheaper near you.

I finally moved into a house with a garage and get to spread my tools out - for a long time I've been using a shop vac hooked up to a dust deputy and running a hose from that from tool to tool which works fine, but I also have a table saw connected to a 3/4" hp harbor freight single bag collector and it doesn't really seem to collect very well - when I'm ripping something there's plenty of saw dust getting thrown off the blade and it doesn't seem to pull much down through the plate. Do I need to look into getting some rubber to seal the cabinet up a bit more? Or look at a blade guard that has a collector in it?

Well, the reviews seem to indicate that it is identical to a comparable Jet and Shop Fox. Who manufactures those ones?

Not sure, I was looking in the UK, I just recognise the machine.

I have 2 of the HF ones. They’re fine but nothing stellar. Good for the money, IMO.
