Muskegon, MI
United States

My workshop is in the basement. It has grown over the years so that now it takes up most of the space in
the basement. I recently got the Sawstop 1.75 hp. Professional Table Saw and have been very happy with it so far. I just finished the outfeed support table for it, which works great. I also just added the Harbor Frieght 2 hp. dust collector and a seperator after reading the good reviews on this site.

Hewy, this looks like a pretty nice shop to me. You have managed to add quite a bit of storage to your shop with the shelving and you look like you have plenty of room in your shop. You also have put together a good looking collection of tools. I am sure you enjoy working in there as I know I would.

Thanks for the tour. I had fun visiting your shop.

The Harbor Freight 2 hp. dust collector works very well. It has plenty of suction. I think this is a very good dust collector for the money.

Great setup!

Take a look at my writeup / review of the HF 2HP DC. That is the best bang for your buck for sure. But I strongly suggest changing that 5 micron filter bag out for a 1 micron or better bag, or better yet a cartridge filter… They are cheap enough… Even with upgrading the bag, you are still plenty of money ahead of competing units!

Thanks for the comments. One of the thiings I plan to do in the future is add a Wynn cartridge
filter to my dust collector. I have read your review and others,which rated the Hf 2HP DC as a
very good dust collector, this is why I decided to buy one.

Thanks again
