Re: Rare Earth Magnets

Sounds like they'd work. WIth the brittleness issue, you might want to go with the nickle plated ones or consider a thin layer of buffer to keep chipping down.

I bought the mystery sample pack off the site I ended up on.

Ah, well there you go.

I have used Lee Valley's 3/4" magnets successfully in one project. Two of them mounted in the advertised cups are used to attach a homemade dust collection intake to my bandsaw. They hold extremely well, even against the pressure of the "flexible" 4" dust collection hose.

I have a Jet 1200-DC, the version prior to the canister filter. I have it connected to all my stationary equipment via 4" drain pipe with short runs of flex tube where needed. It would be serious overkill for just a planer, but I really like the result after putting in the effort to build the everything-connected system.

Yeah, a Shop Vac is marginal on a planer, although one guy I know is just getting by with the biggest Sears vacuum and the vacuum-sized model of the Lee Valley cyclone lid.

As long as he keeps the width of the board under about 9", the vacuum can keep up. When we tried an 11" hunk of oak we ended up with a mighty clog in the hose ...

I just recently added the cyclone lid to my DC system, using a fiber barrel for the collection container. I am loosing some suction, but I think a little creativity with weatherstripping might help! :-)
I can't say yet if it was a no-brainer, but it seems like I am not having to empty the bags on the DC as often. It was every other month before the lid, now it's looking like twice a year will be the schedule.
Now that I think about it, that *is* a win. Emptying the bags on the DC is a *pain*. Although I have come up with a few tricks to help.
Of course if you get one then you *have* to get the Lee Valley clear plastic model, so you can satisfy your curiosity about how the thing is working.

Well, with the cyclone lid, I end up with two classes of waste; shavings and dust. The dust I just pitch into the refuse stream, I haven't found a use for it yet. The shavings however make great mulch for flower beds. Although I avoid using walnut shavings since I have heard rumors that the shavings exhibit the same herbicidal effects that the trees themselves demonstrate in their understory. I have not yet found anything credible to verify the rumor, but I'm not going to risk the wrath of the wife by just trying it on her petunias! :-)
