Ah, the addiction begins.

For dust collection consider the HF unit – wait for a sale – if you cannot find something used. But don’t use that filter bag, 5 micron stuff is not so healthy to breathe. Some people build a Thien separator, skip the filter bag, and send the exhaust through a wall to the outside. Otherwise pop for a filter kit. I am much happier in my home shop now that I have decent dust collection.

But you can do a lot with the kit you have now.

I would recommend the jointer right after the dust collector.

This compressor is supposed to be quiet. I’ve got a noisy pancake compressor, but I don’t use it so very often. Once I start using compressed air much I’m going for the quiet compressor.

It seems like a nice comfortable shop with lots of room to grow.
