I’ve got a 1.5 Delta d.c. that I’ve had for years. It’s hooked up to every major tool and machine in my shop. I have had no trouble with it doing it’s job…..If your JDS is 1200 cfm, which I think it is, I think you’ll be fine… It’s like Justfine said though, more than 2 machines and it does loose some suction…..But… often do you have more than one machine on at a time? If I’m running the tablesaw, I’ll close all of the other blast gates, which you should do anyway. Hardly ever have 2 on at the same time…..I looked at your shop pixs, and your shop is smaller than mine, and I have some long runs and drops in mine, so your d.c. should work ok. My d.c. sits in a seperate sound-proof room some 40 ft. from some of my machines… worries…

You can always upgrade to a larger one if the need arises…..Just keep it cleaned out and bags emptied, and it’ll be ok….that’s the way I see it…...:))
