Does anyone own theSouth Bend SB1099 - 3 HP Cyclone Dust Collector?

And if so how do you like it?

https://www.grizzly.com/products/south-b...tor/sb1099

I have low 86" high ceilings in my garage shop and this unit is 81" high. Most of the 2 or 3hp machines are too high for my shop. I really liked Laguna but they are too high.

I want to cry once, and upgrade, so don't want to have to do this again. I want to have some idea if South Bend has decent quality, reliability, and fit and finish. I could only find two reviews on it, on the Grizzly site.

Putting the shooting board to work

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


You may remember I developed a couple of different shooting boards earlier this year. Today I used the bevel feature to shoot the ends of the aprons that wrap around a bench I'm working on.

The aprons wrap around that shelf on the top of the legs. BTW, the bench is cherry veneer over plywood.

I cut the apron pieces on my chop saw maybe 1/32" long and thentuned the final fit with theshooting board. You get much cleaner surfaces off the shooting board.



The advantage of the tilting bevel over the donkey ear approach isn't obvious with this piece, but the long aprons are 59" long, a little hard to hold in good alignment against a donkey ear but easy on this shooting board, just add support for the outboard end and go to it w/o struggling. And in case you forgot or didn't know, this shooting board can do any miter angle and mostbevel angles, separately or in combination.

Here's what it looks like on one end after shooting the miters.



Thanks for looking. I'll post something when the bench is done.
