Reader rboyett2001 just made my hit list. Check out this sweet-ass deal he scored for his shop. If the title of the image is correct, it’s a Jet DC-1100C model dust collection system.

I got a great deal today. This is a $600 dust collector that has barely seen any use at all. The previous owner barely got any sawdust into it. I got if off ebay for $228.00!

Mr. Boyett: hats off and beers up to you; excellent bargain hunting, sir. And it looks to be in great shape. We hope it turns out many years of dust-free service. Now if you’ll excuse me, I feel the need to go sweep the shop.

    Thanks for the complement.

    Now I need to figure out what to do with all that flex hose. There is a ton of it. I’m planning to put up some ceiling mounted ducting, so I won’t need all of the hose. I wonder how much I can get for it on CraigsList.

    It also came with several gates, fittings, spare bags, etc, etc.. Definitely worth every dime..

    I also need to find a jointer (^_^)

    I would strongly suggest getting the ridgid jointer. I have found it to be a great work horse of a tool. and the best part is now freud makes replacement blades for it at a very reasonable costs ($20) What a great job it does, good stability, and great accuracy after initial setup.

    If you want any other details don’t hesitate to email

    I’ve test driven the Ridgid and I do think it is a decent jointer but I’m looking for an 8″ jointer. I’m not falling into the “I should got an 8″ trap. I’ve got plenty of boards that would need an 8” too. I’ll most likely be ordering one from Papa Grizzly (^_^)

    The addition of the DC has forced me to clean up my shop and get it organized. I’ve still got a ways to go with that but I’ll have pictures up on the Toolmonger photo pool in just a few minutes…

    From my experience if I were you I would use the flex hose until you know for sure where you want to run ducting- I changed mine around 3 times before getting it dialed in- got tired of all the sheet metal work.
