After researching central vacuum systems for my workshop, I decided to build my own central vacuum system. I used a 6-gallon bucket underneath a DIY cyclone. The system works great and emptying the bucket is much easier than emptying the shop vac. I also have the unit mounted near the ceiling so that it is out of the way. I use a remote control outlet to turn the system on and off.

If you run into a situation where the barrel collapses from the vacuum pressure then the wall is too thin. You can combat this occurrence by adding wood strips to the outside of the barrel, screwing them from inside the barrel into the strips on the outside.

The Hoffmann Jointing System is an extremely versatile and effective way of jointing wooden components. The system has confidently been used for over 10 years worldwide and is now recognised as a high quality durable joint. The patented dovetail key provides the ideal joint because the precise double dovetail shape, and the exact matching slot produced on the machines means the two pieces of timber are accurately and precisely drawn together to form a secure and permanent joint. Applications include mitre joints on architraving, door linnings, picture frames, window beading, plinths etc. It can also be used in straight but joints for general furniture, drawer boxes, kitchen cabinet face frames etc. In addition shaped staircase handrails can be jointed along with large section heavy frames or garden buildings. The machines themselves are very simple to use and operate and as standard are available with manual or pneumatic, bench or floor standing. For special applications there are a number of semi automatic models available or machines complete with saw units for producing the cut joint to be dovetailed. Video Rating: / 5
