The dust collection system is made from six inch spiral pipe with curve joints. I goes through a trash can lined with foam to dampen noise and catch large objects before going through wall to dust collector in the closet. In the closet is also the air compressor the has a hose the come out into the shop and to the hose re-tracter system.

Also, there are metal gates on the system and I have installed two floor sweeps with metal gates.

NICE setup! where did you get the spiral pipes from? I’m looking to setup a similar (smaller) system, but have yet to find a supplier for the 6” hoses at a reasonable price

Looks good. Question – how many hp is your DC? What kind of results do you get running that much piping from it? Just curious.

That is the one and one-half horse power shop fox. It works fine because I usually only have one bast gate open at a time so the system pulls the dusk with on problem. I am going to hook up the rockler dust right floor sweep to one of the gates.

When I say floor sweep I mean installing in the center of the shop the extension hose and the wand that acts like a wand on a shop vac only it is hooked up to the shop system. I already installed two stationary floor sweeps at opposite ends of the shop.

Damn! That dust extractor room is exactly what I was planning to do with my new shed! Nice one!
Have you got that venting to the outside world?
