The Super Dust Deputy

09-15-2013 10:58 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 217 comments »

I recently converted my single stage dust collector into a 2-stage system using the Super Dust Deputy by Oneida. In this video I share my initial impressions and performance of the system. I do not cover all the modifications although you see the overall setup and I give a basic price breakdown of the cost. I will cover the specifics of my conversion in the future. If you have been thinking of getting a Super Dust Deputy to convert your single stage DC into a 2-stage system, but are on ...

Tips for Designing and Finding Inspiration

09-14-2013 05:56 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 50 comments »

With the release of my latest article in WOOD magazine on design, it prompted more requests for a video on designing and how I find inspiration. In this video I share the lifestyle habits I have that allow me to keep finding inspiration, recording those ideas, and developing the designs. For an example, I share how I turned a Japanese torii gate into a stairwell barrier, bucking the standard design of newell posts, balusters, and handrail. While the subject of designing can get pretty d...

Reinforced Mounting Lid For The Dust Deputy

04-23-2013 08:30 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 48 comments »

Since I did the Dust Deputy Review in Episode 27, I have been getting questions and have decided to answer them publicly with a video so everyone may benefit from the answers. In this video I show how I reinforced the 5 gallon bucket lid that I mount the Dust Deputy to. In Episode 28 I gave information to help the woodworkers decide which shop vacuum size might be the best to use with the Dust Deputy. Here are the last 2 videos: Episode 27: Dust Deputy Review Episode 28: Choosi...

Melamine Part 2: Apply Edge Banding

01-30-2013 04:52 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 46 comments »

I just finished up the video for applying edge banding to melamine. This video follows Part 1 on how to get clean cuts in melamine, which can be quite a challenge without the right blade and techniques. Once the melamine is cut, often it will need to have edge banding applied. So I cover this topic in Part 2. I could have made a 2 minute video that shows me applying a piece with an iron and trimming the excess, but that can leave a person with a lot of questions. In these videos, you no...

Getting Clean Cuts In Melamine

In this video I share my tools and techniques for creating clean cuts on both sides of melamine. The blade I use in the video is a triple chip Freud LU97R010. It makes the cut on the back side as clean as on the top side. The images of the cuts in the video are of the backside of the material where chip-out tends to occur. In Part II I will show you how t...
