Here’s some of my dust collector adventure! It was a big decision to cut the concrete in my basement shop!

That’s some nice duct working you’ve got there. I see we have the same taste in Dust collectors! I’m still hooking mine up again after the move upstairs. So is there a blast gate for the table saw as well?

Thanks for all the compliments. I have been pleased with the results. I think I was most proud of the cheap and simple pipe hangers.

There’s a right way to do things and there’s the “make do” way. You chose the right way. Kudos.

You have a real nice shop. Congratulations.

Thanks for all the comments. The system is working quite well. The only thing I would possibly do different is select a different dust collector. the Oneida system is a very good system but other brands on the market are much shorter which leaves room for a larger barrel. Of course I have only 8 foot ceilings in my basement shop. The blower motor is between my floor joists.
