Additional Safety for Dust Collectors
SUSPENDED DUST PARTICLES AND IGNITION
SOURCES. DO NOT operate the dust collector
in areas where explosion risks are high. Areas
of high risk include, but are not limited to,
areas near pilot lights, open flames, or other
ignition sources.
FIRE SUPPRESSION. Only operate dust collector
in locations that contain a fire suppression
system or have a fire extinguisher nearby.
HAZARDOUS DUST. Dust created while using
machinery may cause cancer, birth defects,
or long-term respiratory damage. Be aware of
dust hazards associated with each workpiece
material, and always wear a NIOSH-approved
respirator to reduce your risk.
IMPELLER HAZARDS. DO NOT place your hands
or tools near the open inlet during operation
for any reason. The powerful suction could
easily pull them into the impeller, which
will cause serious personal injury or damage
to the machine. Always keep small animals
and children away from open dust collection
inlets.
DUST ALLERGIES. Dust from certain woods
may cause an allergic reaction in people and
animals. Make sure you know what type of
wood dust you will be exposed to in case
there is a possibility of an allergic reaction.
AVOIDING SPARKS. DO NOT allow steel or rocks
to strike the impeller—this may produce
sparks. Sparks can smolder in wood dust
for a long time before a fire is detected. If
you accidentally cut into wood containing
tramp metal (nails, staples, spikes, etc.),
immediately turn OFF the dust collector,
disconnect it from power, and wait for the
impeller to stop—then empty the collection
container into an approved airtight metal
container.
WEAR RESPIRATOR. Fine dust that is too small
to be caught in the filter will be blown into
the ambient air during operation. Always wear
a NIOSH approved respirator during operation
and for a short time after to reduce your risk
of permanent respiratory damage.
EMPTYING DUST. When emptying dust from the
collection container, wear a respirator and
safety glasses. Empty dust away from ignition
sources and into an approved container.
OPERATING LOCATION. To reduce respiratory
exposure to fine dust, locate permanently
installed dust collectors away from the
working area, or in another room that is
equipped with a smoke detector. DO NOT
operate the dust collector in rainy or wet
locations—exposure to water may create
an shock hazard or decrease the life of the
machine.
DISCONNECTING POWER SUPPLY. Turn the
switch OFF, disconnect the dust collector from
the power supply, and allow the impeller to
come to a complete stop before leaving the
machine unattended or doing any service,
cleaning, maintenance, or adjustments.
REGULAR CLEANING. Regularly check/empty
the collection bags or drum to avoid the
buildup of fine dust that can increase the
risk of fire. Make sure to regularly clean
the surrounding area where the machine is
operated—excessive dust buildup on overhead
lights, heaters, electrical panels, or other
heat sources will increase the risk of fire.
STATIC ELECTRICITY. Plastic dust lines generate
high amounts of static electricity as dust
chips pass through them. Although rare,
sparks caused by static electricity can cause
explosions or fire. To reduce this risk, make
sure all dust lines are thoroughly grounded by
using a grounding wire.
-9-
SAFETY
INTENDED USE. This dust collector is only
intended for collecting wood dust and chips
from woodworking machines. DO NOT use this
dust collector to collect metal, dirt, pebbles,
drywall, asbestos, lead paint, silica, liquids,
aerosols, or any flammable, combustible, or
hazardous materials.

DESIGNING THE SYSTEM
General
This dust collector can be operated as either a stationary,
central dust collector or a mobile unit. There are
advantages and disadvantages to both setups. The
advantage of the mobile system is eliminating the cost of
many ducts and fittings. On the other hand, the stationary
system is more efficient and customizable.
Whatever system you choose, always make sure there
are no open flames or pilot lights in the same room as
the dust collector. There is a risk of explosion if dust is
dispersed into the air.
Duct Material
You have many choices regarding main line and branch
line duct material. For best results, use metal duct for
the main line and branch lines, then use short lengths
of flexible hose to connect each machine to the branch
lines.
Plastic duct is also a popular material for home shops.
However, be aware that there is a fire or explosion hazard
if plastic duct material is used for dust collection without
being grounded against static electrical charge build-up.
This topic will be discussed later in this section. Another
problem with using plastic is that it is less efficient per
foot than metal.
-19-
SETUP
If using this dust collector as a stationary system, put
the dust collector in an out-of-the way location such as
a corner or separate room. The dust collector is capable
of collecting dust from up to two machines running
simultaneously. Woodstock offers a complete line of dust
collection accessories for setting up a stationary, central
dust collector system. Additionally, Woodstock offers
a complete guide book entitled Dust Collection Basics
(refer to Page 30 for additional details).
Always guard against
static electric build-up
by grounding all dust
collection lines.
Model W1666/W1685 (For Machines Mfd. Since 2/15)
Plastic Duct
The popularity of plastic duct is due to the fact that it
is an economical and readily available product. It is also
simple to assemble and easily sealed against air loss. The
primary disadvantage of plastic duct for dust collection is
the inherent danger of static electrical build-up.
Metal Duct
Plastic duct generates
static electrical build-up
that can cause fire or
shock. Properly ground
all plastic duct to
reduce this risk.
SETUP
Advantages of metal duct is its conductivity, efficiency,
and that it does not contribute to static electrical charge
build-up. However, static charges are still produced when
dust particles strike other dust particles as they move
through the duct. Since metal duct is a conductor, it can
be grounded quite easily to dissipate any static electrical
charges.
There are a number of options when it comes to metal
duct, but metal duct that is specially manufactured
for dust collection is the best choice. When selecting
your metal duct, choose high quality metal duct with
smooth welded internal seams that will minimize airflow
resistance. This type of duct usually connects to other
ducts or elbows with a simple, self-sealing clamp, is very
quick and easy to assemble, and can be readily dismantled
and re-installed. This is especially important if you ever
need to change things around in your shop or add more
tools.
Figure 20. Examples of plastic duct
components (Model W1055).
Avoid inferior metal duct that requires you to cut it to
length and snap it together. This type of duct is time
consuming to install because it requires you to seal all
the seams with silicone and screw the components on
the ends with sheet metal screws. Another disadvantage
is the rough internal seams and crimped ends that
unavoidably increase static pressure loss.
Figure 21. Examples of metal duct
components.

Model W1666/W1685 (For Machines Mfd. Since 2/15)
Flexible Duct
Flexible hose is generally used for short runs, small shops
and at rigid duct-to-tool connections. There are many
different types of flex hose on the market today. These
are manufactured from materials such as polyethylene,
PVC, cloth hose dipped in rubber and even metal,
including steel and aluminum.
The superior choice here is metal flex hose that is
designed to be flexible, yet be as smooth as possible to
reduce static pressure loss.
If using flex-hose, you should choose one of the many
types that are designed specifically for the movement of
solid particles, i.e. dust, grains, and plastics. However, the
cost of specifically designed flexible duct can vary greatly.
Woodstock offers polyethylene hose, which is well suited
for the removal of particulate matter, especially sawdust,
since it is durable and completely flexible. Polyethylene
is also very economical and available in a wide variety of
diameters and lengths for most applications.
-21-
SETUP
There are also many kinds of pure plastic flexible hose,
such as non-perforated drainage type hose and dryer vent
hose. Drainage type hose, while being economical, does
not quite have the flexibility required for dust collection.
The inside of the duct is also deeply corrugated and
can increase the static pressure loss by as much as 50%
over smooth wall duct. Dryer vent hose, while being
completely flexible, is non-resistant to abrasion and has
a tendency to collapse in a negative pressure system. We
DO NOT recommend using dryer vent hose in your dust
collection system.
Figure 22. Example of flexible metal duct.
Model W1666/W1685 (For Machines Mfd. Since 2/15)
System Grounding
SETUP
Since plastic hose is abundant, relatively inexpensive,
easily assembled and air tight, it is a very popular
material for conveying dust from woodworking machines
to the dust collector. We recommend using flexible hose
(flex-hose) to connect the woodworking machine to the
dust collector. However, plastic flex-hose and plastic duct
are an insulator, and dust particles moving against the
walls of the plastic duct create a static electrical build
up. This charge will build until it discharges to a ground.
If a grounding medium is not available to prevent static
electrical build up, the electrical charge will arc to the
nearest grounded source. This electrical discharge may
cause an explosion and subsequent fire inside the system.
To protect against static electrical build up inside a nonconducting duct, a bare copper wire should be placed
inside the duct along its length and grounded to the dust
collector. You must also confirm that the dust collector
is continuously grounded through the electrical circuit to
the electric service panel.
If you connect the dust collector to more than one
machine by way of a non-conducting branching duct
system and blast gates, the system must still be grounded
as mentioned above. We recommend inserting a
continuous bare copper ground wire inside the entire duct
system (see Figure 23) and attaching the wire to each
grounded woodworking machine and dust collector.
Be sure that you extend the bare copper wire down all
branches of the system. Do not forget to connect the
wires to each other with wire nuts when two branches
meet at a “Y” or “T” connection.
Always guard against static electrical
build up by grounding all dust
collection lines.
Internal
Ground
Wire
Attach the bare ground wire to each stationary
woodworking machine and attach to the dust collector
frame with a ground screw, as shown in Figure 23.
Ensure that each machine is continuously grounded to the
grounding terminal in your electric service panel.

Ensure that the entire system is grounded. If using plastic
blast gates to direct air flow, the grounding wire must be
jumped (see Figure 24) around the blast gate without
interruption to the grounding system.
We also recommend wrapping the outside of all plastic
ducts with bare copper wire to ground the outside of the
system against static electrical build up. Wire connections
at Y’s and T’s should be made with wire nuts.

System Design
Decide Who Will Design
For most small-to-medium sized shops, you can design and
build the dust collection system yourself without hiring
engineers or consultants. We have included some basic
information here to get you started on a basic design.

If you have a large shop or plan to design a complicated
system, we recommend doing additional research beyond
this manual or seeking the help of an expert.
Sketch Your Shop Layout
When designing a successful dust collection system,
planning is the most important step. In this step, sketch a
basic layout of your shop, including space requirements of
different machines.

For the next step, sketch how you will connect your
machines to the dust collector. Consider these general
guidelines for an efficient system:

1. Machines that produce the most saw dust should be
placed nearest to the dust collector (i.e. planers and
sanders).
2. Ideally, you should design the duct system to have
the shortest possible main line and secondary branch
ducts. See Figures 26–27 for ideas of efficient versus
inefficient duct layouts.

5. Each individual branch line should have a blast gate

6. The simpler the system, the more efficient and less
costly it will be.
SETUP
Determine Required CFMs
Since each machine produces a different amount of
sawdust, the requirements for the minimum amount of
CFM to move that sawdust is unique to the machine (for
example, a planer produces more sawdust than a table
saw). Knowing this required CFM is important to gauging
which size of duct to use.
Refer to Figure 28 for a close estimation of the airflow
each machine requires. Keep in mind that machines that
generate the most sawdust should be placed closest to
the dust collector. If the machine has multiple dust ports,
the total CFM required is the sum of all ports.
If the machine does not have a built-in dust port, use the
table in Figure 29 to determine which size of dust port to
install.

for machines, based on dust port size.

Write the required CFM for each machine on your sketch,
as shown in Figure 30.
Determining Main Line Duct Size
The general rule of thumb for a main line duct is that the
velocity of the airflow must not fall below 3500 FPM.
For small/medium sized shops, using the inlet size of the
dust collector as the main line duct size will usually keep
the air velocity above 3500 FPM and, depending on your
system, will allow you to keep multiple branches open at
one time.
Mark your drawing, as shown in Figure 31, but using the
inlet size for your dust collector as the main line.

The general rule of thumb for a branch line duct is that
the velocity of the airflow must not fall below 4000 FPM.
Note: Systems with powerful dust collectors work better
if multiple blast gates are left open. This also allows you
to run two machines at once. Experiment with different
combinations of blast gates open/closed to find the best
results for your system.

SETUP
For small/medium sized shops, using the dust port size
from the machine as the branch line duct size will achieve
the correct velocity in most applications. However, if the
dust port on the machine is smaller than 4", make the
branch line 4" and neck the line down right before the
dust port.

If two machines will connect to the same branch line and
both will operate at the same time, then add the required
CFM for each machine together and find the closest total
CFM in the table in Figure 33 to determine the correct
branch size.
If both machines will never run at the same time,
reference the machine with the biggest dust port in the

Calculating Duct Resistance
Adding duct work, elbows, branches and any other
components to a duct line increases airflow resistance
(static pressure loss). This resistance can be minimized by
using rigid (smooth) pipe and gradual curves, as opposed
to flexible pipe and 90˚ elbows.
To help you think about this resistance, imagine riding a
bicycle in a tunnel that is an exact replica of your duct
work. If the inside of the tunnel is very bumpy (flexible
pipe) and has a lot of sharp turns (90˚ elbows), it will take
a lot more effort to travel from one end to the other.
The purpose of calculating the resistance is to determine
if it is low enough from the machine to the dust collector
to meet the given CFM requirement for the machine. Use
the following tables to calculate the resistance of duct
work.

In most small/medium shops it is only necessary to
calculate the line with the longest duct length or the
most fittings (operating under the assumption that if the
line with the highest resistance works, the others will be
fine).
To calculate the static pressure of any given line in the
system, follow these steps:
1. Make a list of each size duct in the line, including
the length, and multiply those numbers by the static
pressure value given in the previous table.

2. List each type of elbow or branch and multiply the
quantity (if more than one) by the static pressure

SETUP
Additional Factors
Note: Always account for a seasoned filter, so you
don't end up with a system that only works right
when the filter is clean.
Additionally, when calculating static pressure loss
to determine if multiple lines can be left open at
the same time, only include the main line numbers
once.
5. Compare the total static pressure loss for that line
to the maximum static pressure loss found on the
data sheet for your machine (located toward the
front of this manual).
—If the CFM for your static pressure loss is above the
requirement of the machine, then the line will
most likely be successful. Congratulations! You’ve
just designed your own dust system. Compile a list
of materials and refer to Accessories beginning
on Page 30, to start buying the components
necessary to make your system a reality.
-28-
Figure 36. Totaling static pressure
numbers.
—If the CFM for your static pressure
loss is below the requirement of
the machine, then that line will
not effectively collect the dust.
You must then modify some of the
factors in that line to reduce the
static pressure loss. Some of the
ways to do this include 1) installing
larger duct, 2) reducing amount of
flexible duct used, 3) increasing
machine dust port size, 4) moving
machine closer to dust collector
to eliminate duct length, and 5)

OPERATIONS
Do NOT put hands or small
objects near inlet openings
during operation. Objects sucked
into the inlet will meet with
the impeller blade. Failure to
heed this warning could result
in property damage or personal
injury.

General
Operating a dust collector is simple and straightforward.
Turn the dust collector ON, then turn the dust producing
machine ON. When you are finished with the machine
operation, turn the machine OFF, then turn the dust
collector OFF.
OPERATIONS
Blast gates can be used at the start of each branch line to
control the air flow from the woodworking machine to the
dust collector. If a machine is not being used, keep the
blast gate closed to maintain higher levels of efficiency
throughout the system.

Disabling Switch
The paddle ON/OFF switch can be disabled by removing
the key, as shown in Figure 37. Disabling the switch in
this manner can prevent unauthorized operation of the
machine, which is important if it is not kept inside an
access-restricted building or in a location where children
may be present.
IMPORTANT: Disabling the switch only restricts its
function. It is not a substitute for disconnecting
machine from power when adjusting or servicing.
Machine Storage
When the dust collector is not in use, unplug the power
cord from the power source. Place the cord away from
potential damage sources, such as high traffic areas,
sharp objects, heat sources, harsh chemicals, water, damp
areas, etc.

MAINTENANCE
General
Regular periodic maintenance on your machine will
ensure its optimum performance. Make a habit of
inspecting your machine each time you use it.
Check for the following conditions and repair or
replace when necessary:
•
•
•
•
•
Loose mounting bolts.
Worn switch.
Worn or damaged cords and plugs.
Almost full collection bag.
Any other condition that could hamper the safe
operation of this machine.
To reduce risk of shock or accidental
startup, always disconnect machine
from power before adjustments,
maintenance, or service.
Lubrication
Since all bearings are shielded and permanently
lubricated, simply leave them alone until they need to be
replaced. Do not lubricate them.
Bag Cleaning
MAINTENANCE
Always empty the collection bags on a regular basis.
Emptying the collection bags allows the machine to
operate at a much higher level of efficiency.
Always wear the appropriate respirator or dust mask and
safety glasses when emptying the collection bags. Small
dust particles can escape the bags during emptying,
causing them to become airborne and easily inhaled.
This microscopic airborne dust is extremely unhealthy to
breathe and can cause serious health problems.
While the Model W1666/W1685 excels at collecting the
majority of wood dust produced by your machines, it
is not an air filter; therefore, we strongly recommend
the supplemental aid of a shop air filter such as the
Woodstock Model W1690. Air filters are designed to
collect the smaller dust particles in the air that escape
from the dust collector bag.
-32-
Always wear a respirator and safety
glasses when emptying dust collection
bags on the dust collector. Sawdust
may cause allergic reactions or
respiratory problems.
Model W1666/W1685 (For Machines Mfd. Since 2/15)
Replacing Bags
The lower bags should be emptied when they become 2⁄3
to 3⁄4 full.
To empty the dust collection bags, do these steps:
1. DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER!
2. Make sure you are wearing safety glasses and a
respirator.
3. Release the quick release clamp securing each
collection bag, then remove the bags from the
collector, as shown in Figure 38.
4. Place a garbage bag over each bag, invert the bag,
and shake the dust out.
Figure 38. Replacing lower bag.
5. Dispose of the dust and re-install the bags with the
clamps.
