as woodworkers, we strive for the best dust collection possible, well maybe no the best but enough that our machines will work. I’ve seen many videos of people showing their set-up, however I haven’t found one similar to mine, so hear is my video.— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXC0T1fUDOo

Nice video, thanks for sharing your setup. It seems to be working well for you.
If you flip your blast gates so they face the other way, they will seal better. Basically if the thumbscrew is on the upstream side, and the gate handle is on the downstream side (pointing towards the dust collector) it will seal better. It doesn’t make much sense until you look closely at the gate construction. The thumbscrew will hold the gate tightly closed against the suction force when installed correctly. When they are backwards, the thumbscrew will force a gap in the gate, allowing the system to leak at each gate.

Thanks again, cool setup.
