I'm in the process of running line for my eventual dust collection system.
I'm using Bill Pentz's recommendations for 6 inch PVC sewer and drain
line. Fortunately, I can get the line locally. What I'm having problems
with is that the place I can get the line does not stock all the different
fittings I'm going to need. They are happy to special order stuff for me,
but I have to buy a case of a particular fitting at time.
Does anyone have a source that would be willing to sell individual
fittings? Particularly at a price something less that list?
I'm in the Columbia River Gorge area, about an hours drive east of
They are just today pouring the concrete for my 22 x 25 shop. I got my
pipe for the floor fron ACE Hardware here in GA. You may want to look there.
I also got one fitting from an underground irrigation co. The plan is to
put in all 6' and get a Cyclone from Penn State. The construction is taking
way to long..hehe
Is that "real" CFM or manufacturer's "touted" CFM?
Reason I ask, I have a horse and a half Murphy-Rodgers and
whilst it's somewhere in the "above a thousand" CFM in free
flow (no bag/no connections) Murphy-Rodgers is nice enough
to advertise it as 700ish (real world).
Real. I think. I learned it at a dust collection website. I think the guy
had to have been an engineer because I didn't understand half of what I read
He did say with a 1.5 hp collector, to get rid of the 4" trunk connection
and upgrade to 6" because that was necessary to collect the really fine dust
that kills people in the Republic of Kalifornia
Not exactly. I'm doing my DC design strictly from Bill Pentz's web site
(http://billpentz.com//woodworking/cyclone/index.cfm ). Seems that there
is enough ancedotal information elsewhere on the web that his data is
good. I'm not a good enough fluid dynamics engineer to figure out this
sort of stuff on my own.
BTW, thanks whoever it was who suggested Mesher and the Blue Borg. I'll
check them out this weekend while I'm in Portland picking up the
mother-in-law at the airport.
Here (mid-Missouri), one of the two plumbing suppliers carries the 2729
sewer and drain pipe. Both generally carry a few fittings, but were out of
wyes. Lowes, which doesn't carry the pipe, carries some 6" fittings. I don't
know if these will help you, but the sales numbers off my Lowes receipt are
1812 (6X6X4 wye) and 1807 (6X6X6 wye). They also carry 45s and short-radius
90s, but I didn't get any and so don't have the sales numbers.
Frank, try United Pipe & Supply. They should have anything you want; they
supply contractors. The one closet to you is might be the one on Columbia
Boulevard in Portland or possibly off Johnson Creek near Clackamas (I
think). They'll be in the telephone book. There are now two in
Vancouver. The ones I dealt with were always great and are not "snobbish"
to the individuals (individuals just don't get the contractors' volume
