Merry Christmas to ME !
I bit the bullet today and ordered my Dust Collector for the shop. Powermatic TurboCone Dust Collector, 3HP 1PH 230V, 2-Micron Canister Kit, Model PM1900TX-CK1, ONEIDA AIR SYSTEMS Super Dust Deputy Molded Cyclone with ONEIDA AIR SYSTEMS 17-gallon Steel Drum For Super Dust Deputy. Also got some new blades for the Table saw and the Miter saw. Freud LU91R012 Sliding Compound Miter Saw Blade 12” x 1” Bore x 72 Tooth ATB, and Freud LU87R010 Circular Saw Blade 10” x 5/8” Bore x 24 Tooth Flat Top Thin Kerf.

My plan is to build a inclosed area at the back wall that will hold the DC, I have some 20×20x1 filter housings that will vent the area to the outside of the shop area. If needed I can add a fan to help with venting.
After New Years I will head over to the lumber suppler and order the needed lumber for framing the walls. Then on to the electrical and DC plumbing. As my wife says “All you got to do is …...”

Wow! That is quite a present for yourself. I hope you did at least as well for your wife.
