Finally got my new 3 HP pflux built and some of the pipe run, enough to try it out. The unit was actually fun for me to put together. I watched the video and had no trouble at all. Out of all the screws, nuts and bolts that came with it I used every one of them, didn’t have to use one screw of mine and did not have even a small sheet metal screw left over. That will never happen again.
As for the Dust collector it works perfect. Not to loud, actually quieter than my dewalt miter saw, and has a tremendous amount of suction. I was worried because of some of the reviews I read about the pflux but so for have not seen anything wrong.
I hooked my saw up and ran the unit for a while collected almost a full bag of dust and found hardly any in the filter container. As of now I’m happy with it and think I made the right decision and would buy it again. Just hope I don’t have any trouble like some others.

Very nice. I love my Laguna Flux!! Only thing I’d keep an eye on is the remote…I have to call them Monday; I’ve been having intermittent trouble with the “ON” button. and it’s a long walk to turn it on manually ;-)

Seems the only thing you did differently than my set-up is ran your pipes above. I laid all mine out under the foundation and added couple extra taps for future expansion.
I’ll get some pics up on my shop hopefully this weekend (if the snow ever stops long enough to put the plow away that is)

I want to try using 4 – 45 degree fittings and come straight out of the unit with them to get it the ceiling. I ran a straight 3 ft. pc. of pipe out because I read somewhere it helped. I’m planning on doing that later though. Right now I just want to get my shop back in order. I just finished with the wood paneling and hope to get started on a drop in ceiling in a week or so. Hanging the paneling by myself like to have done me in, guess I should ave hired some help as old as I am and all the health problems on top of that. Though about just insulating the attic part with Styrofoam sheets and just forgetting about the ceiling, that’s another problem though..

I used a flex line from Flux to main floor tap. Have had no issues with it.
This frkn remote is driving my crazy though, hope the replacement gets here soon. It’s a long walk to shut the damn thing down manually ;-)

Haven’t gotten around to doing any paneling in mine yet, Just the insulation thus far. Way behind on orders for Christmas and had to call it good with that part being in.
My new place is 40×60 with 22’ ceilings, so I doubt I’ll ever do anything in ceiling beyond the insulation/vapor barrier
