Upgraded Dust Collector with Super Dust Deputy Cyclone

If you watched my shop tour video then you saw the upgraded dust collection unit I built.  The video below talks more about that system and some of the CFM reading I got as I made changes to the system.  If you're considering making changes to your system to adding a Cyclone, you'll want to check this out.

Shop Tour

So I'm finally in my new shop and its mostly setup. Click on the video below if you'd like to see where I'll be "making" soon. Couple of things I didn't mention in the video and people already asked about.
  • Wood storage will mostly be in the other garage but I'll put some in the corner where the heater is (not too close of course).  I may use the space up high on the walls but that just seems like a pain. 
  • Assembly will be done mainly on top of the table saw and the out feed table, bench and the floor - yeah not ideal.
  • I do have a couple tools in the other garage like my Lathe and my Ridgid Spindle sander. They'll probably stay over there on mobile carts and I'll just get them when I need them.
  • Oh, and I pre-ordered a Shapeoko 3 - but I really don't know what I'll use if for yet.
