I would definitely go with plumbing it in rather than moving a dust collector around. Usually when I start working with a piece of wood if it fits on my 6” jointer I will flatten one side on that. Next I will run the other side through the planer, then back to the jointer to square one side to the faces. Next to the table saw to make the width even now I usually will run that side through the jointer. I would hate to be moving that dust collector for every operation. I use 4” PVC pipe with blast gates at every machine that I just screwed together so it is cheap and easy to move if you decide to move a machine. I am not sure which dust collector would be best but I built my cyclone dust collector from the plans in Wood magazine. I think it is very important to have the ceiling mounted air filters. I built two and they work great.
