Default I have dust collector info

Well I used my Delta AP400 dust collector today fill the bag 4 times using it with my planer got all the wood planed and ready to go. That dust collector is a true up grade of anyones shop I only had to use the broom and shovel for 1 scoop. The rest went into the bag and I just emptied it in to the garbage can so I can give to my bud that has horses. I just can't get over how it worked. I was using a shop vac what a pain never knew when it would fill up and then it was the down time for unclogging the planer. I reccomend it highly now that I know how good it works. It's not a plug for delta get anything that you can afford or have room for you won't go wrong.

If Lowe's has their 20% off sale on Monday, I'll be picking mine up then. I'll still have to get the fittings ordered and won't get to use it until then. I think the wifey is more excited than I am, as I work out of my garage without any dust collection at all. Looking forward to it. By the way, did you get a grounding kit for it? Do you even need one?

Kevin there is a grinding kit? Never even heard of that. If there is please give me the info on it because I was lucky I almost had a knot from the hemlock go through I caught in time. I know you can get a dust thingy for a 30 gal garbage can collector between the machine and the collector so to catch the heavy stuff. But I never heard of a grinding kit. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Ha Ha!!! Glenmore, I said GROUNDING KIT. It's supposed to keep a static charge from building up and shocking the heck out of you, or sparking and igniting the dust in the tube and/or unit. I'm not sure you will need one. I know "they" say that if you run PVC, you should you use one. You can go to www.billpentz.com , go to dust collection and cyclones, and read up on it. I just recently found this site and there is lots of information on there about dust collection systems. I'm not sure if they really pertain to these systems, I haven't really had a chance to give it a good read. As for the separator you mentioned, I am going to invest in one of these. I can't see myself chasing a chunk of wood down a hose. I'm probably not as fast as you.
I appreciate the Christmas wishes, and wish you and yours the very same. God bless my friend.
Kevin

Kevin sorry about that hahahha that's what I get for having only 3 hours of sleep today. I didn't notice any sawdust clinging to the hose usually I did notice static electricty on the hoses when I was using the shop vac though. Luckily the knot I noticed was at the end of the board that I was planing just lucky I seen it.

I just picked up mine today and put it together. I'm going to order all the fittings and stuff tomorrow. I see what you mean by quiet. I may have to buy a car port for the wife as I finally used up enough room to push her out of the garage.

Get and use the grounding kit. It is better to be safe then sorry.I know some people say you have to have them and some people say you don't.I my self have one, It does keep the static down.And as far as the inline Trash can goes for the big chips that is also a must. I sucked up a bath towel one day an I was glad I had that trash can. Can you just see the stuck in the DC, And if you suck up any nails or stuff like that it really helps. Learning Herb

Only problem I have with getting the grounding is that I don't have a regular place for it I'm always rolling it around from machine to machine I mean what would I ground it to. That is the question. Well a towel I have you beat I almost had my flannel go through the planer got caught on the board I was planning I happen to be lucky to look down at the board and saw it before it got to the blades.

The general consensus (sp?) is that if you use PVC you probably should use a grounding kit. But, the AP400 uses the spiral hose that has wire running through it thus grounding it. I'm not sure, but I'm going to take my chances as I won't be expanding my DC for some time.
