It’s taken just about forever, but I just used my tablesaw indoors, and my 1hp Harbor Freight mini and a Loxes bucket cyclone kept the air FREE of floaties. I’m sure they’re still there somewhere, and I know the thing needs a good bit of snigging up, but I’m just so glad I can now actually work on stuff while not outside. It really did seem like I was cursed for a while. There are more adapter on that thing than I can count. It’s like there was no way to just single hose the thing. I’ll bet a lot of my airflow is seeping away. But Huzzah!

Little DC.  Oh!

most of the shop

It’s okay, I get the idea…

So you got one of the red (the good one) HF 1 HP DCs… And it looks like it’s connected via a separator lid / trash can via adapters to get down from 4” to 2.5” (Shop Vac) size fittings for the table saw? Good work… A suggestion though, try to find a 1 micron filtration bag. You’d be shocked at the stuff you can’t see that is just getting pumped around in the air…

Well, I didn’t get a 1 micron, but I grabbed a 5 from Woodcraft to set it up. I’ll probably get a 1 when I go to HH to try and tear off a piece of Lie-Nielsen’s apron.

I probably should have linked to them because they seemed to have warped b/c of resizing.
