I have a friend that is an HVAC specialist and we sat down and designed this unit together which he then ordered some custom parts to be made. After $60 in materials, $85 for the dust collector and a cutting board for a trade off, that left me with $145 out of pocket. Not too bad, I don’t think. It works good, but can only do one tool at a time. Oh, and I also spent about $40 on the 4” hose and 6” duct work into the trash can.
I wired its outlet to the wsitch there to the right of the collector. That way, I can turn it on easy when at the tablesaw.
No large chips in the bag. Of course my next upgrade is to get a 5 micron or smaller bag….This one is 35.
