your Shopsmith Dust Collector for optimal performance:
Shopsmith DC-3300 Dust Collector requires practically ZERO
maintenance. The Main Housing contains no user-serviceable
components. Here's what we suggest:
Any time you notice a drop in collection efficiency
-- Tap the Filter Hood to dislodge the dust build-up inside.
If you're generating a lot of fine dust, you may have
to tap the Hood more frequently to ensure the maximum
time you change Collector Bags
- Tap the Filter Hood to dislodge the dust build-up inside.
the Filter Hood
Filter Hood may be removed periodically and washed, in the
event it becomes soiled and/or clogged. It should be hand
or gently machine washed in COLD water, using a mild
detergent. Line dry or tumble dry on NO HEAT.
BEFORE removing the Filter Hood, remember to tap it
several times to dislodge the built-up "dust cake" into
the Collection Bag. Failure to do this will result in large
quantities of fine sawdust being discharged into your plumbing.
the Dust Collector
remainder of the DC-3300 Dust Collector may be cleaned with
a sponge or cloth that has been slightly dampened with
a soap and water solution. Be sure to wipe or dry all parts
