Dust Collection for Newbies: Introduction to Dust Collection

This is an introduction to dust collection. If you don't know anything about dust collection, or maybe just a little, then this is the place to start. I cover the concept of dust collection, learn the basic terms, and put together a dust collection system for my garage workshop. Also see my follow-up video on grounding: https://youtu.be/8rtSmTIPmVU


Dust Deputy
The original.

Dust Deputy & Bucket
If you don't want to bother with setting up your own bucket, this is the way to go.

Lid Opener
Best little tool in my shop. Well, maybe not, but it's definitely awesome.

Caliper - Digital
Features metric, fractional inches, decimal inches, with a nice case.

Vacuum Hose - 2 1/2" Expandable (Dust Right)
I have two of these, and I love them.

Hack Saw (Stanely)
Great hack saw.

Dust Mask
This is the dust mask I use. It fits my face really well, and doesn't fog my glasses.

Dust Port (Rockler)
I'm sure there are others out there, this is just the one I used.

Power Tool Switch (Rockler)
Sometimes this is on sale at Rockler, so check there first.

I used this for a couple of years, and it's great.
