Revitalise Shed Dust Extraction

I’ve been looking again at the shed dust extraction system with a view to refine and revitalise it – as recently discussed I have again moved the dust extractor into the lower shed for a number of reasons, so it is a good time to reassess things. My main issue is wanting to remote-start the extractor, and just supplying and cutting power does not achieve that for the unit I have.

One thing I have been considering is getting the whole ducting off the ground, possibly up at waist or head-height – better access to the blast gates, stops the system getting buried under typical shed detritus. I recently purchased these blast-gate mounts from Rockler

So it was rather coincidental when I went into Carbatec and saw one of their brand new products:

It may seem a bit unnecessary having clear tubing, but I actually prefer the concept – it gives a clear indication of how well the extraction system is still clearing particles, and also to reveal the location of any blockages.

Combining this with the Super Dust Deputy Carbatec have recently started selling and it could make for an interesting extraction system.
