« Part 4: Almost moving day! Part 5 of New Home Workshop series Part 6: Shop Setup Underway »

After considering removing the existing kitchenette, I think this layout works and allows me to keep it, at least for the time being. Now I just have to work out the details for the ducting. As it stands, I think I can get by with 4 ports. The band saw and planer/jointer can share one. The table saw and router table can share one as can the drill press and lathe. Those combinations were chosen because there is little chance I’ll be using those parings during fabrication. I will more than likely have a need to run the TS and the planer during an operation, but having things set up in this way, I will not have to remove/replace the flexible connections to each machine to continue an operation. The small bench top machines (belt/disk sander, Ridgid combo sander and spindle sander) that will go on the cabinet at the lefthand side of the shop will be serviced by a shopvac system, which I’ll need to work on when everything is in place, unless I can come up with a way to use the central system for this.

This may get some refinement, but I think all in all, this is a good working plan. Oh the dust collector is an Oneida 3HP Dust Gorilla Pro with Smart Boost. The room it’s located in has an existing exhaust fan to the exterior.

Bill, the layout looks very good. Did you have Oneida design it or is this another of your many talents? I do have a suggestion, however, I recall from some source that the cyclone benefits from having at least a 5’ straight run before entering the cyclone. This reduces/eliminates any turbulence in the air flow which increases the efficiency of the system. It looks like you have the space to do this easily. HTH

Hey Art. I sent off the drawing of the layout to Oneida, but haven’t heard back from them yet. This is my attempt at laying out the ducts for the collection system. I just was interested in seeing how this might work out.

I wasn’t aware of the 5’ rule :) Thanks for the info. I guess that will be one of the tweaks. The others being the lighting and how the ducts impact them. I don’t have my reflected ceiling plan here in NY so I’ll have to wait until I get back to Pittsburgh to review how the ducts will interact with the lighting. The fixtures are flush mount, so no issue as far as crossing below them, however the shop ceiling height is below 8 feet by a few inches and is suspended. The location of the collector has a ceiling height exceeding 8 feet. However I won’t be able to run the ducts above the suspended ceiling as there’s just way to many obstacles.

In the end, I’ll let Oneida design the runs and purchase the components from them. The design fee is credited toward the purchase.

Bill, don’t put a lot of stock in my recollection; please verify with Oneida or other credible sources.

Art even if it wasn’t the correct recollection, it sounds reasonable :) Oneida is going to do the design. The plan I sent them doesn’t show the dust collection layout, but only the placement of the machines. I’m realizing now, and I did inform them of this, that the TS will need it’s own port as I will incorporating overhead dust collection via a Shark Guard with a 4” port. The cabinet of the TS has the option of 5” or 4” with the supplied reducer. I would like to keep it 5” for better performance. We’ll see what they come up with :)
