View larger

Keep your workspace free of dust and debris with the Shop Fox W1685 dust collector from Woodstock International. For use with woodworking machines, this dust collector is equipped with a 1-1/2-horsepower, single-phase motor that operates at 3,450 revolutions per minute (RPM), along with a heavy-duty, 12-inch steel impeller that moves 1,280 cubic feet of air per minute. This machine has a powder-coated finish that resists scratches, chipping, fading, and other wear.

6-inch Inlet with Y-Adapter

The W1685 features a 6-inch inlet with a removable Y-fitting with two 4-inch openings. The Y-fitting is used to branch lines to service more than one machine, perfect for those looking for a convenient multi-machine set-up. If two ports are not needed simply remove the fitting to expose a 6-inch inlet or cap-off one of the 4-inch inlets.

Safety Switch

This dust collector includes a safety switch to protect against unauthorized use. The switch provides a greater degree of safety over other switches due to its oversize paddle and removable lockout key. No more fumbling around to locate the OFF button. Simply slap the paddle down to switch off power.

By all appearances it is a good quality product as advertised.
G. Jacobs
I'm a pretty amateur woodworker, so dont get a TON of everyday use out of this, but when its hooked up right, it sucks like nobody's business.

I purchased the Shop Fox W1685 elsewhere for $199 and I've got no regrets. It's solid and heavy. The supports for the dust separator are 3/4" pipe and the support for the upper bag is 1/2" pipe, very solid. I had a little trouble with the nuts and bolts that it came with, they're CHEAP!!! Stamped out at some other Chinese factory where the quality control isn't up to snuff. I had to replace a couple of bolts and nuts because the threads were badly formed. The rest of the unit is excellent, all of the mounting holes lined up perfectly.

It draws 16 amps on startup. So you better be prepared with either 2 circuits, one for the dust collector and the other for your power hungry tool, or be able to start the tools sequentially. The latter is what I do.

As for the noise level, I'm quite pleased for now. It's much less than the shop vac I've been using until now and the pitch is much lower and therefore not irritating. But, combined with other tools one should still wear hearing protection.

I don't have any problems recommending this dust collector to anyone.

Most people that buy this dust collector will probably not use it as much as I do so I might be a little harsh giving it just four stars BUT I'm going to tell you some things that you may need to think about.

I run a small one man cabinet shop with quite a bit of small equipment. It can handle two small machines running at a time, or one planer. It cannot handle a drum or wide belt sander.

If you have a number of machines that you want to connect via 4" to 6" pipe then you'll want to keep it under three or four different machines, still only using one at a time.

Like I said before, it cannot handle a drum or wide belt sander, and for two different reasons. First, the cfm rating is too low, and the second the particles from a sander will pass right by your 30 micron bag... eventually causing respritory problems as you hack it up for the rest of the day.

This is a great dust collector for machines that generate medium size chips, like a router/shaper, or a small planer/jointer. If you want to connect more than four machines, go with a 3 hp dust collector minimum.

This machine is fantastic. The warranty is good too. I hooked this up to my thickness planer and man let me tell you "this thing really sucks"....but this is a good thing.
I shopped all over for this and Amazon has the best price. Free shipping helps but it did take a little while but it is very heavy so no complaints.
If you are looking for a well built central vac system for your shop then you have found it. I highly recommend this as your major dust remover and a great place to start for your system. I plan on hooking this up to numerous machines now that I see its performance and abilities.

this little unit has a very nice small footprint. It comes with casters so you can move it around the shop or out of your way if need be, it went together in about 45 mins....yours may be faster as mine required some tweaking of the motor bracket in order to bolt it down. The unit though load is quite compared to other things like a shap vac for instence...it hums a long and it is amazing how much this unit can suck up before you need to clean out the bag. Why didn't I buy this sooner?...The one star knocked off is for the motor braket issue and also i was missing one bolt (thank god for the bolt jar right...lol) i have this unit hooked up to a table saw and a planer...i have not had much success hooking this unit up to my compound miter yet but thats my next project...can't seem to catch as much with that system as I like ...but on the table saw and the planer it was really heaven. I planned about 500 linear feet of 1x5 rough down smooth both sides and then changed the bag...just awesome..and most importantly it got it all....a quick note once running its a light draw so you can run this and a saw lightly on the same circut...just no 5/4 oak ok....enjoy

I previewed a whole group of dust collectors before making this purchase. I was very close to purchasing the 220V model that has a little more CFM, but due to the extra cost of running another 220V curcuit I changed my mind, and i'm glad i did.The 1.5 HP is plenty and the 1280 CFM is more vacuum than i expected. So far this unit has preformed with out any issues and isn't as noisey as the shop vac's that i was using. I read some where that, when your shop looks like a show room for shop vac's you need a dust collector, LOL. I would recomend this unit to any one or two man shop and by purchacing through Amazon.com I was able to save money and it was delivered sooner than some of the other venders offered. Thanks Amazon.com and thanks Shop Fox for an excellant machine that is preforming above expectations.

Just received this today and assembled it in about an hour. Others have commented on the instructions, saying they were not clear or complete, but they seemed sufficient to me. There were a few minor items that were unclear, like where the washers were supposed to go, but as the unit went together it became clear than any bolt that required a nut used a washer on each side, and any that did not just used one under the head. In one instance the instructions said to install a bolt and nut where the bolt actually threaded into a tapped hole. These are minor inconveniences, and most likely have to do with product revisions that haven't been updated in the manual. It was somewhat amusing that two combination wrenches are included, an 8/10 mm and an 11/13 mm, which is nice, but you need 2 10 mm wrenches and 2 13 mm wrenches to tighten the bolts with nuts. You also need a Philips screwdriver, and that is not included, so including these wrenches seems a little pointless, since you need additional tools anyway. The bag supports are under the Styrofoam in the very bottom of the box, and are easy to overlook.

The unit works and looks good. It is much quieter than expected. I only plan to use it few time a month, so it looks to be a great unit for the price.
