We picked up this Shop Fox W1685 dust collector for the woodshop. With our recent addition of a planer and router/router table we decided it was time to do something about all of the dust and shavings. Looks like I will need to make some collection attachments for the radial arm saw, jointer, and table saw also along with making room for the new equipment.

Dump the bag and get a canister filter, much more efficient and better for your lungs.
I plan on it later when I replenish the bank account. For now the unit will be rolled outside during use.

If you're like me, this could be the start of an obsession. I bought a DC about a decade ago because I had a large planer. Since then, I've become obsessed with connecting everything I own to the system. First it was the jointer and bandsaw. Then it became tablesaw, routers, sanders. I've not been 100% successful but I remain undeterred. I've even had custom hoods made for some of the machines. I can say, not having to sweep up after planing and jointing stock is something I cherish.

BTW, Taunton press has a great book on workshop dust collection; it contains quite a few good tips and suggestions.

Good luck and enjoy!
