If you caught my blog post, you know I’m gearing up for getting a DC.
My priorities (in order) are:
My shop is small. There are two tool areas. On one side of the shop is the TS, router table, and workbench. On the other (about 20 feet away) is the bandsaw, jointer, drill press.
Initially, I will probably roll the DC between the two areas as needed. In the future, I might try to shove the DC into a small storage closet, and it would need to support two runs of PVC – one 10’ to the tablesaw/router area and one about 20’ to the bandsaw/jointer area.
Now that you have the background, here are the models I am considering. They do vary a little bit in price and performance. They cap out at the max. I’m willing to spend right now $350ish. Based on my priorities, what would you go with?
Grizzly G1028Z2 – 1.5HP/1300cfm $330 (filtering size out of the box? 5 micron?)
There is obviously a cheap option, but I’m wondering if it will violate priority #1.
Thanks for your help LJs!
