I currently own and operate a Jet DC 1100 1.5 HP dust collector. It worked well in my old, small, 20’ x 20’ shop. I just stuck the plastic hose on the machine I was going to use. and away we went.
Now that I am in a larger place (about 1,000 sq ft dedicated area), I want to have permanent duct work. I did my calculations, figured out how many drops, the length, amount of static pressure, CFM, and everything else that is needed (don’t ask me now – I have all those figures stored somewhere!). Because I am a hobbyist, and not a full-time woodworker, I am looking to buy either an Oneida or a Penn dust collector.
My question is – which one would / do you use (if you use either or these), and why would you recommend it?
-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.
