I’m having a small battle with Amazon.com right now over a dust collector I ordered.
The specs on the site say that this unit ships with two 5 micron bags.
When I emailed Amazon about this they replied and said, “I’m sorry, but we can’t check the physical details of an item for you…”!!! I wouldn’t call this a ‘physical detail’ but a specification of the item – similar to saying an item takes D batteries when it takes C size – it affects the performance of the item in a big way.
I’m somewhat venting and somewhat posing a question here… I looked online and see that sawdust particles can be as small as 30 micron, if that is the case these should do fine. However I’ve been told by a few, much more experienced, woodworkers that I need to go to a <5 micron bag.
Can anyone shed some light on this? I got a great deal and free shipping on the item, however if I need to buy new bags there may have been less expensive alternatives.
