I recently purchased the Hammer N4400 band saw and the Hammer A3-31 12 inch jointer planer combination machine – they are great!
I was using a 1 hp Grizzly portable dust collector – that was no longer sufficient.
So, I built a box, took off the inlet cover, mounted the motor on the box and mounted a 4 inch inlet on the side of the box.
Here’s my problem: when the grizzly dust bag is off (just to check suction) the power seems very strong. When I attach the bag, which captures only big particles, suction falls in half.
Would buying a cyclone help? What type of filter would be better for cleaning the exhaust and maintaining the highest CFM?
