I recently picked up a jointer, and after a few minutes of use I realized it was time to get a dust collector. I don’t have space for a commercial collector, so as usual I turned to the net to look for alternatives. After a few hours of searching I came across Phil Thein’s website, and quickly realized I had found the solution I was looking for.
- The motor of a Harbor Freight Mini Dust Collector
- quarter sheet of 3/4″ MDF
- quarter sheet of 1/4″ Hardboard
- 4″ elbow
- 30 gallon garbage can
