Thank you guys for the advise!

Lew – Thank for the word of caution. The main heating is electric but I do have a fireplace upstairs so i’ll have to pay attention.

Grandpa – Even if I vent outside, I would have to add filters first to protect the motor but, to vent outside I am using an old Jen-air cooktop vent, that vents directly under our deck so I would not want to see what I am venting out comeback through the patio door. The main difference between when I would vent outside or inside would be the type of filter I would use. I would likely add an HEPA as an outfeed when I vent in the otherside of the basement.

auggy53 – thanks for the pics – obviously amazingly efficient, hpe mine works as well.

Medicken – Thanks will look into it, but what I keep reading give me a lot of confidence!

hairy – I only have a shopvac so far. So this is a start for me, my next stop will be to beef-up my shop vac with a cyclone chip collector of some sort.
