Video: The Difference A Dust Collector Can Make

Posted on 16 November 2020 by cradmin

This video from The Fabricator Network shows how much difference using a dust collector can make. Andy Graves demonstrates sanding a deck seam with a 5-in. hand sander/grinder with 40 grit sandpaper. Dust collection cuts down the dust by about 95 percent.

Dust collection is an important aspect of the solid surface fabrication process. It’s even more vital when finishing a seam at a job site. Keeping the dust under control while working in a customer’s kitchen can help keep the space tidy.

Oneida Introduces BenchTop DC Personal Dust Collector

Posted on 06 November 2020 by cradmin3

Oneida Air Systems introduced its newest innovation, a personal dust collector designed specifically for use on a workbench. The BenchTop DC™ Personal Dust Collector’s unique design allows it to fit conveniently on a workbench behind the tool, where it moves airborne dust away from the source (and the user’s breathing zone) and into the unit’s highly efficient dual-filter system.

This portable unit delivers powerful source collection for hand tools lacking built-in or adequately sized dust ports, and for any activity that puts users in close proximity to dust generation.

Features of the BenchTop DC™ Personal Dust Collector include:

  • Six fan motors provide 535 CFM to tools without adequate dust ports.
  • Functional hood design ensures optimal airflow.
  • Variable-speed control customizes fan speed for any application.
  • Dual-filter system significantly prolongs the lifespan of the internal MERV-15 filter.
  • Includes supplemental 110V outlet for powering hand tools and accessories.
  • Slim design offers portability and ensures an easy fit on any workbench.

Oneida Air Systems Introduces Dust Deputy Bagger

Posted on 20 January 2020 by cradmin

Oneida Air Systems has introduced the latest addition to its Dust Deputy family of products—the Dust Deputy Bagger.

The new Bagger combines the patented Dust Deputy cyclone separator with an innovative wall mounted bagging system that turns any wet/dry vacuum into a high-capacity, two-stage dust collection system. According to the company, it is ideal for any workshop, garage or other space where wet/dry vacuums are regularly used.

The patented design of the Dust Deputy cyclone uses centrifugal force to capture and remove 99 percent of dust and debris from the air-stream before it reaches your vacuum’s filter, eliminating clogged filters and suction loss.

The Dust Deputy Bagger Cyclone Separator Kit includes a clear Dust Deputy cyclone, wall bracket and hardware, bag collection system with (5) clear plastic 25-gallon bags, and six feet of hose.

Alpha Professional Tools Introduces ESC-125 Wet/Dry Stone Cutter

Posted on 11 June 2018 by cradmin

Alpha Professional Tools® has re-designed the popular AWS-125 Wet Stone Cutter, and introduced the ESC-125 which was created based on the feedback from fabricators in preparation for the new silica rule change by OSHA in 2017. To reduce the silica particles,  a dust cover was added on the side of the blade guard to redirect the dust from the cutting edge into an attached HEPA vacuum for dry dust removal. The ESC-125 is equipped with a newly designed Water Jet System that delivers sufficient water to cool the cutting edge as well as removes slurry from the cutting line ahead of the stone cutter.

Equipped with the Water Jet is a Hybrid Kink/Memory-Free Water Hose that comes with a quick disconnect garden hose adapter.

The new Clamping System, located on the side of the blade, ensures cutting stability, whether doing a step cut 3cm sink hold cut-out or making a groove for the reinforcement rod with much smaller diameter blades.

Festool Introduces New CT Dust Extractors

Posted on 28 March 2018 by cradmin

Festool has introduced several newly updated models of its CT Dust Extractor product line which feature smooth suction hoses, optimized SYS-Dock with cord holder, T-LOC function and optional Bluetooth connectivity with remote control.

Many of Festool’s existing CT models can be retrofitted with the Bluetooth modules and remote starters and the new smooth hoses can be used with almost the entire CT product line.

The new smooth suction hose and optimized SYS-Dock with cord holder and T-LOC function for conveniently connecting SYSTAINERs to the mobile dust extractor features:

• The new suction hose is perfect sliding over edges, improved handling and a longer service life. With new CLEANTEC extraction sleeve for a secure fit on the tool.
• The CT 26, CT 36, CT 36 AC and CT 48 can be individually retrofitted with a Bluetooth module for remote operation via a remote control on the suction hose or a Bluetooth battery pack when working with Festool cordless tools.

The optional Bluetooth modules and remote controllers now enable you to benefit from Festool’s virtually dust-free system when working with Festool cordless products, too:

• Ideal for occasional cleaning tasks without having to change the CT Dust Extractor from AUTO to       MAN mode.
• Start the CT Dust Extractor with the remote control directly on the suction hose.
• The Bluetooth module communicates with Festool Bluetooth battery packs. The CT Dust Extractor is started automatically when the cordless tool is switched on.

Rockler Expands Line of Dust Right Solutions

Posted on 12 February 2018 by cradmin

Dust Right Vacuum Harness

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced new dust collection solutions to expand its line of Dust Right products. This wave of solutions includes several products to enhance the performance of existing dust collection setups, providing tighter fitting connections, as well as out-of-the-way pipe installation and hose management accessories.

Rockler’s latest products include:

Dust Right Vacuum Harness
When using a shop vacuum in conjunction with the Dust Right Separator, this harness straps them together so the user can roll them around in tandem without either unit tipping over, and without any of the hoses tangling with each other or dislodging from the fittings.

Schedule 40 Fittings
Thicker and more robust than Schedule 20 plumbing, this thicker piping requires fittings
that are made to accommodate the thicker pipe walls. Rockler has developed two adapters to fit Schedule 40 PVC pipe: one to connect 4-in. dust collection fittings and another to connect 4-in. dust hose.

Dust Right Dust Hose Mounting Bracket
This bracket facilitates attachment of a dust hose to a workbench, roller stand, stationary power tool or other shop fixture.

Dust Right 4-in. Handle Docking Port Kit
This storage solution for the Dust Right 4-in. Quick Change Handle and Expandable Hose consists of two rubber straps that mount to the wall to hold the hose, plus a wall-mounted docking port for the handle.

Dust Right Magnetic Floor Sweep Attachment
This magnetic insert attaches to the Dust Right Floor Sweep to filter out ferrous metal parts before they enter the dust collection system. Suitable to collect dropped screws and fasteners while vacuuming the floor.

Hose Coupler for Dust Right Heavy-Duty Shop Vacuum Hoses
Allows Dust Right Heavy-Duty Shop Vacuum Hoses to be connected end-to-end to create longer lengths of hose.
