Unranked in Dust Collectors
Tired of making do with your wet/dry shop vacuum? We donít blame you. Step up to this JDS collection system make all the sawdust you want. After the initial setup (which is a little tedious but not taxing), itís all but maintenance-free; just empty the bag when itís full.
This unit moves 1,250 cubic feet of air every minute Ė thatís equivalent to exchanging all the air in a room thatís 12 by 13 feet with 8-foot ceilings in 60 seconds. Thatís pretty impressive. The top bag filters particles down to 1 micron Ė one millionth of a meter Ė keeping your shop air clean and clear. On the bottom is a replaceable clear plastic bag that lets you see exactly how much is in your collector, and we like the choice of either throwing the bag away with the contents or emptying it out and reusing it. Itís got a 42-gallon capacity, so unless youíre making chips eight hours a day, it likely wonít need emptying too often. Weíd recommend not letting it get full, though, because 42 gallons of sawdust is no picnic to lift.
The motor is wired for 110-volt service, a standard household outlet, but itís easily rewired for 220 volts, depending on your shop setup. Itís got an abundance of power for running one tool at a time, even a planer, but itís probably not sufficient for more than that. The casters make the unit really mobile, so you can roll it around your shop and connect it to whatever tool youíre using, but the casters could be beefier, we thought. We think youíll find, though, that after you use this collector for a while, youíll want to build a system with blast gates and a remote for the unit. Itís a natural progression for tool hounds.
The woodworker who finally ditches the shop vacuum and brings in this JDS collector will wonder why s/he didnít do it sooner. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste
