Another vote to skip past those two. IMO, something in the 1100+ cfm range would be best, but a 650 cfm unit can work.

The mesh size of the filter bag is very important. 30 microns will pass a lot of the really fine dust and it will be all over the place – and in the air you’re breathing. One micron is far better, and a pleated canister type filter is better still.

I have a Jet DC, bur have heard good things about some of the HF units.
