Well folks, if you’ve been following my blogs you know I’ve been working on a thein baffle separator for my HF DC. Since I’m not completely installing all my runs I’ve been trying to plan for the future. I’ve been stuck on the wye piece out of the separator for a couple weeks now. The reason why I “need” to run the WYE is b/c of my shop set up and where I wired my 20 amp breaker plug for the HF DC.
During the planning stages of this project I’ve always wanted the best possible flow for my system, that’s why I was trying to run 5” main pipe with reducers to my machines. Well, it just so turns out that 5” pipe/connectors/etc. are rare to come by. Anyways, I was packing up the Penn State box to return my blast gates and hose when I looked up and saw the Original 5”x4”x4” wye from the HF DC and said “Maybe I should just use that?????”. I was having problems with the weight of the wye and blast gates anyway, why not run the original wye out of my separator with ABS blast gates, CHEAPER and lighter!!!!!
After hours of planning and ordering parts the solution was right in front of my eyes…...........
I think I’m still going to run 4” 26 gauge ducting through Kencraftcompany.com. There stuff is really reasonable for metal ducting.
