So, is it the size of the motor or the impeller that might be the issue? I only need a small unit for my shop right now so I am going to give this a try first.

Here is the small “zone” that I need it in right now. If I get any more equipment I will definately need to up grade I’m sure.

The zones are marked in red. The large zone under the drill press is where I’l like it to be setup with a hose going to the press for when I use the sanding drums and forstner bits etc with a branch running off to the scroll saw. So there will probably be only about 6’ of tubing involved.

I did some searching and I am wrapping my head around how a shop vac works (never really thought about it before) and I think I can use to litter tubs for this. One for the motor and motor filter and the other for the cyclone collector.

So far I have 2 no’s and a yes lol. Any other thoughts before I dive in to this?
