I decided to make this after emptying out my HF DC for the first time, what a pain in the ASS!! Another reason was to help out the HF filter bag. I would say this gets everything over a 5-10 micron if I had to rate this. The picture of the trash can is the dust from the drill press table I just made out of MDF.
This is a great i mean GREAT shop addition but, I did notice a little less suction from before. We’re not talking a lot here, but I did notice a difference. Then again I do have the HF and the impellers are only 10 3/4” not 12” like most other brands. I had plans to run ducting to all my tools, that’s why I made my wye going vertical b/c I had wanted to run a flex on the ground to my TS and the other side to run up the wall to other machines. I decided to stop putting money into b/c I think I’ll be more satisfied if I get the Tempest 2.5 HP Cyclone – 1450 CFM, up to 12 drops and a 50ft run, plenty for a garage shop and I think this will get me what I’m trying to achieve. As you can tell I HATE SAW DUST, but then again who likes it?? lol
