  • Dust monitoring tools

    I've been a happy Amazon Prime customer for almost the past year... There are some great deals on there...

    I've just ordered a wind speed device (anemometer) from there ($16) to measure the cfm of my current setup (7amp Toolex single stage), and improvements as I build my "2hp "(15amp) super dust deputy system...

    I am also ordering an air quality meter for $76 shipped that measure dust particles in the air (PM2.5 and PM10) I suppose it's marked to people living in heavy polluted cities - Beijing, Los Angeles etc... While it's not a Dylos (see woodgear videos), I think it should do ok for my purposes...Google: "Holdpeak 5800D"

    I did come across a site that measures PM2.5 (which from my understanding is particles < 2.5um suspended in air) hourly for Toronto.... Last night it was at 50 when I looked...

    I'll post in my 2hp HF thread... I believe the Dust Deputy will arrive today or tomorrow from KMS in BC....

    Re: Dust monitoring tools

    I am very interested in this. i have a Dylos that i think has finally bitten the dust so to speak as it has decided to stop working. Sadly the people as Dylos seem reluctant to do anything stort of sell me another unit. But as you quite imagine, that cost is significantly higher than the cost of the unit you listed on amazon. if it does about the same thing, then why bother spending for a black box if the blue one works just fine.

      You might want to look at the reviews of that dust monitor. quite a few problems with it, but it does seem like the company is quite responsive to problems and will exchange defective ones, but it is still a hassle if you get one that is DOA.

      a well I don't think this meter will stay on for long term air quality monitoring. (other similar ones don't, couldn't find a definite answer for this one)

        I've had really good luck with Amazon, although I I've never had to do a return.... Yeah, reviews are mixed, but I think since the one I bought is sold by Amazon.ca itself, I think I should have decent protection....

              Here's a reading after making 5 cuts in a 1x4 (not 2x4) without running my small single stage DC

                Made an adapter to charge the dust monitor.... Not CSA approved...

                Made from part of a power cord from a DVD player going to the dump and some scrap wood.

                  Are you charging at 220v at least?

                    Luckily, the adapter does 100-240v
