    Colin is taller than me! I can’t reach the struts on a typical drop ceiling!



  2. MrBubbajohnson1 on August 19, 2022 at 12:09 am

    Thanks Colin and happy new year!



  3. E Caff on August 19, 2022 at 12:11 am

    Thank you for sharing. I love you remote on a string. Also, I installed a muffler on my shop vac that reduced the noise and minimized the dust blowing all over the shop. Excellent video and process again thanks for sharing.

    really?. this man is covered in dust, so obviously something is not working right .. ๐Ÿ™



  5. Jetsetscotty on August 19, 2022 at 12:12 am

    Great videos as usual and I like the magnet trick. Trouble is my extractor is plastic :O( The bags can be a pain to put on.

    Good stuff Colin. Cheers John ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ

    A remote for the dust collector, this guy is pimpin’



  8. Doug Butler on August 19, 2022 at 12:15 am

    Good vid though



  9. Eric Doersch on August 19, 2022 at 12:16 am

    Thanks for the idea of the sack on the shop vac exhaust port! Why didn’t I think of that?



  10. Mike M on August 19, 2022 at 12:16 am

    remote control- why not just clip it to your clothing? Always at hand. It is what I do…



  11. Buckaroo on August 19, 2022 at 12:18 am

    Nice video Colin ๐Ÿ˜€



  12. Tim Walden on August 19, 2022 at 12:22 am

    I donโ€™t understand why every creative idea for accomplishing a goal has to be a โ€œhack.โ€



  13. harry clod on August 19, 2022 at 12:22 am

    If you are looking for something like this, you will find it on the Woodglut website.



  14. GordWing on August 19, 2022 at 12:24 am

    Great tips… Where did you get the large port that you use on the drill press. The one one with the swiveling wood piece attached. That would be perfect for me. Thanks…



  15. Tom Andersen on August 19, 2022 at 12:27 am

    Can you add a link for the remote start. Thanks for the great ideas.



  16. Coastal Bliss Adventures on August 19, 2022 at 12:28 am

    I found your videos about a month ago, Colin, and just found out I live down the road from you. Thanks for all your great videos! With a little more home time recently, I have been outfitting my shop and dreaming up projects to keep my sanity. You are a big help. Keep it up.



  17. Pamela Pollock on August 19, 2022 at 12:28 am

    what’s the name of that rectangular cone that you were cone to use on your drill press to gather up the drill shavings? thank you!



  18. vetteman892000 on August 19, 2022 at 12:28 am

    Great job as always Sir๐Ÿ‘



  19. RM Hutchins on August 19, 2022 at 12:30 am

    I enjoyed your videos. They are very helpful. Thank you!



  20. Jeff Bingaman on August 19, 2022 at 12:30 am

    I don’t like buying anything that doesn’t have multiple uses.



  21. thetraindriver01 on August 19, 2022 at 12:33 am

    The dust sock on the shop vac was a great idea, thanks ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘



  22. ร†re Fรธrst on August 19, 2022 at 12:33 am

    Colin, instead of using the bag which will cause some drag on the vacuum motor, just put a deflector in front of the vacuum exhaust port so it blows the air up instead of down.



  23. wurly164 on August 19, 2022 at 12:35 am

    The roll of red tape you were showing, will that work on my mother in law mouth ?



  24. Matthew Hale on August 19, 2022 at 12:36 am

    What material is that bag made out of that you put on your shop vac?



  25. Bruce Novotny on August 19, 2022 at 12:37 am

    Great ideas and pretty inspirational, Colin. Thank you sir. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ



  26. Tommy Apache on August 19, 2022 at 12:37 am

    Great hacks, enjoyed watching the video, thanks for the tips mate.



  27. Joseph Romero on August 19, 2022 at 12:39 am

    craftsman makes an exhaust filter for about $15 that works amazing too. it redirects the air in several directions so u barely notice it



  28. DaveEP on August 19, 2022 at 12:39 am

    Great tip for using the magnets for holding the bag while securing with the strap. Just spent ages struggling to get my bag on a similar machine. Thanks!



  29. Craig Monteforte on August 19, 2022 at 12:40 am

    I always enjoy your " hack" videos and reccomend your videos to many of my freinds getting started in Woodworking as a hobby



  30. ILLECEBRIS on August 19, 2022 at 12:42 am

    Colin Connect!



  31. Tom Truesdale on August 19, 2022 at 12:47 am

    Another great video with more useful tips and tricks.



  32. Francois Fouchรฉ on August 19, 2022 at 12:50 am

    Great tips … thanks !
    Here is one for you … I got rid of the metal clamp for the dust bag, I replaced it with a hook and loop (velcro) strap, it works great.



  33. MAGA MAN on August 19, 2022 at 12:56 am

    A magnet from a lamp and a tape measure? Where are you buying you lamps and tape measures? I’ve never seen one of either with a magnet on it.



  34. glen schumann on August 19, 2022 at 12:57 am

    Thanks.



  35. Grampa EJ W5EJM on August 19, 2022 at 12:58 am

    Just a tip, for your shop vac sock. Install an elbow, to direct the exhaust upwards, and away from the other equipment and the floor. That way it helps to not blow up the dust on the floor, you haven’t gotten to. Also, your sock will ‘drain’ back into the vac.



  36. Weekend Warrior on August 19, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Excellent.



  37. nick dispensa on August 19, 2022 at 12:59 am

    good jpb



  38. Stephen Brown on August 19, 2022 at 1:01 am

    You should try to put your shop vac in series with your 4" system. Take the place where you put that filter bag and connect it to your big system. You will be amazed. I have also put a small floor mounted 4" motor with impeller in series with my main collection on a table saw to get more effective dust collection. This is in fact putting them in series.



  39. Roger Whiting on August 19, 2022 at 1:02 am

    When you say you have a 2 inch system.. do you mean 2.5?



  40. Doug Butler on August 19, 2022 at 1:04 am

    Hacks… Makes me cringe



  41. Coconutfilipino on August 19, 2022 at 1:04 am

    Wordy….pitter patter. get after it, no one cares where you got the magnets-say what you want to say and move on.



  42. Juho Torvikoski on August 19, 2022 at 1:04 am

    I salute you sir, thank you for this video. I just started my own workshop, these kind tips are priceless. Every day i learn something new, thanks for this chanel.



  43. Sportenet Webdesign on August 19, 2022 at 1:05 am

    hi got a Q about your rack for the wood planes! – do the bottoms slide down to get them out?



  44. Eric Chapman on August 19, 2022 at 1:05 am

    I Have an identical machine the dust bags That has a pocket sewn in to the top for the clamp ring sewn in when supplied. No Twatting around with magnets or bits if string



  45. Jeff Bavely on August 19, 2022 at 1:06 am

    My shop vac is weak enough already. How about just running the vent straight up?



  46. G. Fortin on August 19, 2022 at 1:06 am

    the magnet tip ! I’m gonna use that one thanks !



  47. Frank Sulka on August 19, 2022 at 1:06 am

    Colin, I can’t thank you enough for all that I have learned from you.



  48. Tim Walden on August 19, 2022 at 1:06 am

    We were teased about that drill press adapter. Just when heโ€™s going to tell us what it is…jump cut!



  49. Paul Soundevolution on August 19, 2022 at 1:07 am

    Great tips thank you. I was woundering if anyone ever tried using a portion of the output air to further push your sawdust towards your suction port



  50. Brett Miller on August 19, 2022 at 1:08 am

    I like the magnet on a string idea for the vacuum remote. Iโ€™ll just hang mine from my exposed Sheetrock screws on the ceiling. Theyโ€™re everywhere!
