Well… I could leave the DC in the garage, and pipe it down in the basement, since they “share a wall.” Problems with that are 1.) the DC would be a level above the shop and would have to pull all that dust up hill, and 2.) I’d be sucking air back out of the basement that would need to be replaced somehow (don’t want to be pulling it back in through the boiler and hot water tank’s exhaust, not to mention the heat loss in the winter time).

If I could sort that out, What sort of performance hit could I expect due to having the DC a level above the shop?
