Whoops, I left out the β€œfelt”, apply a 1” Strip of felt with double sided tape to the dust collector frame. This acts as a gasket.

Heylar says:

Great tips Colin. Where is the link to your watch Can't seem to find it.

martino amello says:

I like the extensions.. Now I have a project to keep me busy this week.
As far as the term 'hacks' ? Ehhh.. Just call em modifications. Hacks sounds like it's some super secret stuff that requires a secret hand shake or something.. It's not that complicated Collin.. lol

Harry Davis says:

Thanks, Colin.

Hey Colin. Thanks for the new tips. We have just been doing a room divider using MDF AND PUTTING 5mm Parota plywood on its faces. You tip on edging plywood with a wood edge with painters tape in theory would this work putting the plywood on the MDF using the same method?

Thx. for the clamping tips. I'm a wood carver, bear hand carvings of all sizes and chainsaw bear carving for years. And I do use clamps for many purposes.

Bottle caps are also good for "C" clamps. I use them in pieces that I do not want to scratch, and they're free. Good video!

Great tips Colin!

Great video. Loved the simple C-clamp idea about hanging them upside down. I have always had to tighten mine down to keep them from slipping off.

Hans de Groot says:

Very useful hacks/tips. Thanks for sharing.

Another hack for clamps is run a piece of 2in blue tape down the clamp and the glue squeeze out lands on it and when done clamping can pull it off easy clean up.

Stephanie Berry says:

Great tips.

Cork/silicone pads for a non-marring surface….so simple, yet so obvious, once you point it out!
