Small dust collector plans for sale

The small dust collector is smaller than a big dust collector, and is quieter and uses less power than a shopvac. Using a cyclone made of transluscent buckets for collection makes it easy to see when it gets full. Handles fine chips and planer shavings.

The plans include:

  • Detailed drawings of every part of the dust collector
  • Dimensioned 3D views and assembly drawings
  • More detailed photographs of the finished unit
  • Full-scale 1:1 drawings of the critical parts so you can just paste them onto the wood instead of making measurements.
  • Detailed instructions on how to build it, with over 130 photos
  • Hardware list
  • A SketchUp model which allows you to view them from any angle, disassemble it, or regenerate each of the views in the plans by clicking on the 'scene' tabs in SketchUp. SketchUp is a free, easy to use CAD program, downloadable from Google.

The plans are in metric units, except for drill and dowel sizes, which are in imperial units. You can generate plans in imperial units simply by changing the units to "imperial" in SketchUp under "model info", but the units will not work out to even numbers like they do in metric.
