My Dust Collection System

Filed under: Historical Material,Of Interest,Proper Tools,Shop,Techniques,Uncategorized — Stephen Shepherd @ 10:18 am

It is 100% reliable, totally effective, environmentally responsible and cost less than $200.00.  The brooms were made by a friend and the tin dust pan made by another at Hot Dip Tin.

  1. How do you deal with static discharge? Do you plan on adding a gate system for future expansions? Perhaps a venturi blower to separate chips from dust?

  2. That’s interesting Stephen. You’re dust collection system looks very much like mine. I think I may have to check into copywriting laws and commiserate with my lawer over this. Fair warning.

    Now where to start looking for a good lawer… there seem to be some big rocks over yonder. I may have to roll a few over in my search. ;).

    It’s perfect Stephen, just perfect.

  3. Gary,
    A simple sprinkling of water on the floor takes care of the static discharge issue. I am considering the addition of a bellows.

    I feel that this method is grandfathered in and is in the public domain. Is there any such thing as a ‘good’ lawyer?

  4. To settle this impending lawsuit, I checked with Msr’s Moxon, Nicholson, Felibien, Roubo, et al. I’m sorry to inform Mr. Olson that Mr. Shepherd’s cleaning equipment is in the public domain as it has been mentioned more than once in print, or inferred, prior to the inception of the current US and international laws.
