We’ve been on a quest to upgrade our dust collection. There was a lot of back and forth about whether to go single stage or cyclone. Fortunately, I came across a great deal on an Oneida Super Dust Gorilla with a good amount of spiral duct. We finally got everything in place and dialed in this week.

Looks amazing. Your shop should stay pretty dust free with that set-up.

Actually that picture was taken after a full day of cabinets. This system is doing a great job. I am finding a real issue with the fiber drum and the plastic bags. It simply isn’t working. I’ll be replacing the fiber barrel with steel barrels this weekend because the fiber just isn’t durable enough for our environment. Other than that, this thing will suck the chrome off a trailer hitch. I’m a happy camper!

You got yourself a very nice dust collection system Bill.
I believe in cyclone. It does a better job. Steel barrel should do it.
Oneida sell the barrel.

I have that same DC (mine’s an older model) but I sure wish I had that spiral pipe you got…that’s probably worth more than the DC. Nice job.

Bill I notice you do not have a hood around your chop saw,is your new DC connection enough to collect the majority of the saw dust from your chop saw ?
