spotted a tool table driving by a yardsale today and had to do a u-turn. got a barely used porter cable pancake compressor for $60 and a really old all-metal sidewinder saw for $10. I of course plugged everything in and checked before buying them. I let the compressor fill and shut off to make sure them regulator was still good.
What brand is that sidewinder? How about a pic?
“ram tools”. i’ll have to get a pic of it later.April 28, 2014 at 12:01 pm #124909AnonymousInactive
This one is a pneumatic stapler. I looked on Amazon, all I could find in DeWalt was one you have to squeeze the handle…
The Dewalt is a squeeze handle stapler but it takes a LOT less effort than most of the other sqeeze staplers.
I won an Arrow brand squeezer a while back and it claimed to be easy, But, Since then I’ve got an electric one that’s much easier LOL. I don’t use any of the manual ones anymoreApril 28, 2014 at 7:15 pm #125089
I have an electric one too. Don’t have a lot of use for it though, but it is nice to have when I need it.April 28, 2014 at 7:50 pm #125128hdproProUpstate, NY
I bought this Bostich stapler the other day…it uses T50 staples. I’m really impressed with it so far, I’ve been putting up batt insulation with it.
I’ve been eyeing this Bostitch one ever since it came out last year. I don’t use a stapler that often, but the air assist sure seems like it would be nicer than the squeeze trigger I have now.April 28, 2014 at 8:58 pm #125185April 28, 2014 at 9:05 pm #125190overanalyzePro
Finally got the dust deputy setup. This thing works GREAT!
I keep thinking that would be nice to have setup with multiple inlets like you have. It works well then Brad?

I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner. Yes it works fantastic. You have to remember to throw the gates open and closed and it isn’t very efficient if you have both gates open.
It makes me want a full on dust collection system, but this is pretty good for now as I just don’t have the room.

We have a portable dust collector that slides under our workbench and stays hooked up to our shop table saw. I was thinking this would be nice for our larger trim jobs. Maybe set up close to the miter saw and cut table.

That’s what I am using for, my portable table saw and my mitre saw. I have no complaints.

Congrats Brad. Yes, they really do make a big difference in your vac’s efficiency.April 28, 2014 at 10:36 pm #125262
Nice Brad, been planning to pick up one of these once I get my mitre saw station built out and dedicating my old shop vac and a dust deputy to that. Did you get the baffle setup from LV?April 29, 2014 at 12:01 am #125283DirtyWhiteBoyProHonolulu,, Hi.

Thank you for making me spend more of my money. Been thinking a lot about this lately, and since that thread Jason did, I think that I’m now sold.April 29, 2014 at 9:06 am #125395

This place can have that effect on you. This really is a must have if you are using a shop vac. I vacuumed the shop with it last night and I got maybe a 1/4 in the vac. Almost filled the cyclone. I think it’s going to do wonders for motor life and efficiency.

Does it improve the suction of the vac or is it simply the efficiency of how it collects the debris?April 29, 2014 at 10:02 am #125410

Nice haul. Any pics? I’d love to see if you had some time to do up your van to store the toughboxes.April 29, 2014 at 11:51 am #125455April 29, 2014 at 11:18 pm #125773
Got home today to a nice big box on the doorstep. Some loot from the Festool video contest. A Sys-Midi toolbox and a shirt and hat. Just when I decided only Festools would go in the systainers they send me an empty toolbox, it’s a big sucker too, not sure what I’ll put in it.April 29, 2014 at 11:41 pm #125780

That should have been a 1/4 cup in my previous post. I don’t think there was even that. I was doing some power carving tonight and I will take pics of it in the morning.
It doesn’t improve suction, but it maintains it. The vac doesn’t lose suction. Does that make sense? No plugged filter.
I do notice that anything more then about 12 feet after my manifold I do notice a loss of suction.
