Crank, I am just telling you what I have read. I don’t own a dust collector but want one and I don’t want a $1000 mistake. I read think in Fine Woodworking I think. Wood also had a section this month on dust collection. Both magazines are widely read but those guys are not engineers, they are writers. They ran some tests and wrote the results. I would have to reread the articles and was merely suggesting live4ever do the same. I have read some of the stuff you have written and if I remember correctly you tell us you have designed some systems. Most of us only know what we read in the papers ( I borrowed that- I think Will Rogers said that) so we don’t know much about some subjects. I have a 30×40 shop with a 10 ft side wall and would like to put the collector in another room on the end outside the shop area. If I was sure the HF collector could do it I would try to get one tomorrow (Thanksgiving) but I am not sure it will do what I want. In fact the coupon I have says you can buy 3 of them for the low price. So, the question is do I need to park further away to save the chrome on the bumper or do I still sweep everything?
