« Part 4: Clean Up Part 5 of Hot Rodding a Harbor Freight DC series no next part

Finally purchased one of these on sale at Woodcraft. It works great with this setup. Just plug in to the wall and plug the collector in to the remote. The collector fires right up. And the collector is working great too.

I was thinking of doing the same to my HF DC is there performance difference? I might go a slightly different root and make mine with a cyclonic separator.Nice job

I thought that remote switch was only for a 1 and a half horse motor on a 110 circut. ? So, when the DC turns on, it doesn’t kick out the breaker?? Is your breaker a 20amp??? thnx
