DIY Sawdust Collector

Making an efficient dust collector is not difficult and doesn't even take very long to do! The only thing that you'll really need is a blower motor of some sort.  The one pictured in this post was given to me, but a shop vac motor or even a leaf blower will do just as nice… Continue reading DIY Sawdust Collector
