Workshop Vacuum

The process of mechanical processing of wood blanks is always accompanied by the release of dust or scattering of chips and sawdust. In modern power tools, it is possible to connect any installations for the collection and removal of wood waste, but their purchase for domestic needs is not always justified. At the home level, the improvised device successfully handles the problem of dust removal. Let us consider in detail the procedure for producing a vacuum cleaner for a workshop.

Materials and tools needed
The basis for the project is an old household vacuum cleaner, which uses the following components: • Motor part; • Power regulator; • Power supply cable; • Suction hose; • Nozzles. A polyethylene barrel with a capacity of 50-80 liters is chosen for the hull of the homemade, obligatory but with a snap-on cover. You will also need: • A piece of plastic sewer pipe with a diameter of 50mm; • Plywood 5–10 mm thick; • M6 bolts and nuts - 14 pieces each; • Galvanized sheet strip; • Air filter from a minibus; • 220 switch Volt; • Threaded stud with washers and nuts; • Building sealant; • Sandpaper; • • Glue sticks; • • Corrugated corrugated hose for washing machine; • • Corrugation electrical installation PND 32. Docking units are made of plastic tubes and fittings, selected depending on the size of the nozzles on the tools and the diameters of the suction hoses of the vacuum cleaner. used tools: • Glue gun; • Drill; • Locksmiths; • Screwdrivers; • • Cutting pliers; • • Electric jigsaw; • • Sharp knife;• Files; • Gun for sealant. The process of manufacturing a vacuum cleaner for the workshop Stepping back from the top about 100 mm, on the wall of the barrel mark the hole for inlet pipe and drill it with a drill. Then, with a knife, the hole is oval-shaped so that the inner end of the tube is placed close to the wall and directed downward at a slight angle. Degrease the surfaces to be joined and, using a glue gun,fix the pipe in place.

In the same" hot "way, an adapter for the suction hose is fixed on the outside of the pipe.

A jigsaw cut out of plywood two circles with a diameter slightly smaller than that of the barrel lid. In the blanks first make two holes for the bolts and fix the parts with them on both sides of the cover. Next, drill the remaining holes, remove the circles and remove the burrs with the skin. A sealant is applied around the perimeter of the blanks, the parts are placed on the lid and the fasteners are fully installed. In the center of the plywood circles a hole is made for the hairpin, and a little to the side - under the air intake by the motor unit.

With an air filter Pliers remove the metal grid, otherwise it will be clogged with sawdust and interfere with the cleaning of the vacuum cleaner. One end of the cylinder is closed with a plywood cap.

The prepared filter element is fastened with a wing nut on the hairpin.

The motor part, as a rule, has round shapes. Therefore, for ease of installation, the plastic parts containing the engine are cut out of the case of the old vacuum cleaner. Thanks to them, only one clamp, made of a strip of tin, is needed to fix the unit on the drum lid. A switch and a power regulator are placed next to the engine, placing the latter in a suitable box. It remains to connect the elements with each other by wires and connect the cable with the plug. Making sure the connections are correct and in the absence of bare contacts, they supply power and check the operation of the device.
 Motor part
The standard suction hose of a household vacuum cleaner is too short - it is built up with a corrugated tube for laying wiring or other similar product.

Making nozzles and adapters Cleanliness workshop begins with a bench.To clean the workplace fit the standard brush that goes in the configuration of household appliances.
 Making nozzles
Connect the nozzle with a rubber adapter, cut off from the corresponding caliber tube, for example, from the nipple car cooling systems.

One of the most littering electro Instrumentation is an electric plane. The discharge connection of the tool is large enough, most likely, the vacuum cleaner hose will connect without problems.
 Discharge fitting
For a manual surface grinder, you will need to make an adapter, soldered to the dust bag retainer.

In this case, a thinner hose from the drain of the washing machine and the possibility of An electronic reduction in the suction power of a vacuum cleaner so that the casing does not shrink.

Using the matching method, the corresponding parts are found for the pallet of the circular saw.
look inside
The design does not provide a filling sensor - the first time you should look inside more often, to prevent overflow of dust wasp.
 the result of doing it yourself
Clean and tidy at the home workshop - the result of doing your own work, achieved with a minimum of cash investments.
