Okay, so I was blessed with some money for CHRISTmas. I’ve needed to obtain a better dust collection system for quite some time. I am currently using an old 1-1/2” system which is okay but something has to change.
There are several options that I am considering. The first consists of a complete 4” system. The second option would be to go with a complete 2-1/2” system. Finally there is the option to use a combination of 4” and 2-1/2” systems.
No matter which route I take I will have to do some serious purging in the shop in order to have space for the new DC system.
I’m thinking that for machines such as the power miter saw, bandsaw, drill press, and router table, a 2-1/2” system would suffice. The TS, jointer, and planer would utilize a 4” system.
What are your thoughts concerning this matter? Feel free to visit my home page to view my shop. This will give you an idea of what I’m up aganst.
Your thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
