The Dust Deputy requires the use of bags in the collectionbucket. If a bag is not used, the only way to empty the bucket isto turn the entire shop vac along with the Dust Deputy upside down.This is more on observation rather than a limitation of the DustDeputy.

Is the Deputy right for you

For me the choice of whether or not the Dusty Deputy has a placein your shop comes down to two criteria: size and expectedusage.

The Dust Deputy is bolted to an existi

Saw dust is one of the hidden dangers ofwoodworking. Prolonged exposure can cause a number of illnesses.The dust created by cutting some exotic species can even causeimmediate harm. Today it is widely accepted that commercialwoodworkers should wear a respirator around dust producingmachines.

In a residential environment where dust collection systems areoften not present or inefficient, this rule is of criticalimportance. In this environment it is unrealistic to assume thedust is going to be trapped at the source. A shop vac, forinsta

Why you need a Shop Vac in your Home

Shop vacuums are a very versatile tool to have.They have a place in every home.

Shop vacs can remove water

Shop vacs, sometimes called wet/dry vacs, have the capability tosuck up both dust an liquids. This ability makes them the essentialcleanup tools for the smaller or larger mess in your home.

Dust collection is often the last thing abeginner thinks about. We all seem to start in the garage with atable saw and nothing much else. Eventually fine wood dust coverseverything. The proper dust collection system comes much later. Idon't think this will ever change; even given the health problemscaused by dust. This is the way things are.

I hope to at least get people thinking about proper dustcollection. Here is the order I recommend new woodworkers on abudget buy their dust collection equipment.

by Lorenz Prem on 11-20-2009 9:49 pm

After avoiding the issue for the longest time, Irecently bought the Grizzly G0440 dust collector. It will be thecenter piece of the new dust collection system in my shop. I havebeen working without dust collection for over a year now. I regretnot getting a dust collector immediately when I started my shop.Like so many beginners I decided to invest in machines first. Thedust got so bad I did not want to work in the shop anymore.

Straight out of the box the G0440 makes a solid impression.Every part feels heavy

Grizzly G9956 Air Filter Review
by Lorenz Prem on 11-20-2009 9:41 pm

After procrastinating and covering the shop in afine layer of dust for years, I finally decided to spend the moneyand get an air cleaner. I did my research, or tried to. There wasnot much data about air cleaners out there. Nobody seems to havetested them. I eventually bought the G9956 from Grizzly.

The G9956 Air Cleaner

When I unpacked the machine I immediately noticed why there wasso little data out there. The G9956 is nothing more than a box witha blower inside. I naively expected engineering the be involved.Some so

"Drill/driver OK, reciprocating and circular saws are junk. No torque, circular saw won't cut thru a 2x4, reciprocating won't cut a 4x4 without bogging."
"Indeed, this one is the best 12V driver. Get it. You will not be disappointed."
"I use this one for heavy work. It can do it all. None better."
"Love this Router"
"Great driver with only minor issues. App is limited. The last gen is almost as good, yet a lot cheaper."
"This saw replaced a Delta Unisaw in my shop. It's rock solid, powerful, and well made. Fence rivals Biesemeyer or Unifence. Worth the price, IMHO."
"Excellent performance but tough to use at high speed with soft wood, tends to drive too deep before impact kicks in."
"This is my only true drill. The key-less chuck works flawlessly as does the power/speed switch which is handy for drilling various density material."
"A quality sander that performs well day in and day out. Not the best dust bag, that's minor for me. Fits well in my hand and no fatigue with prolonged use."
"A good option for those looking for their first saw, or those looking to upgrade from a "portable" job site saw. Buy a decent blade and you'll be happy."
