Hey Sharon,

Thanks for replying. The HF DC, though fairly loud, isn’t louder than some tools under load (eg planer and TS), but it needs to run a lot more than those tools. And with quieter tools such as router table, drum sander, OSS, bandsaw. For reference, it clocks in at 87db using an iPhone SPL app at 5’.

But I am suspecting you’re right re: the long runs giving this DC problems. I wonder if this (Fein + air cleaner) is the best I can do given the noise and power limitations?
