Agree with dbhost above on the HF Dust Collector, but recommend you look at the Wynn cartridge filter over a bag. The cartridge filter will give you sub 1 micron filtering significantly more surface area which results in increased velocity. The trash can pre-separator will catch the majority of what goes into your system.

There are 20% off HF coupons in most WW magazines and several others.

If you build a dust filter from squirrel cage furtnace fans, build at least 2 for the amount of space in your shop. Mount them high and oriented to create an air flow circulation around your shop. Each one’s exhaust will push air towards the other.

Good luck to you and your lungs!
