I’m trying to get SOMETHING going with DC because my barn is a disgusting dump and I’m tired of it! I have an old Reliant 2HP that I picked up cheap. Managed to rig some 4” plastic drain pipe up to the tablesaw, jointer, planer and router. I stuck the DC upstairs in the loft.
Now for the funny part. You’ll love this. After a couple of hours of working out there, I noticed something was awry. Went upstairs to find that the bag had blown off the DC and the entire loft (lots of junk!) was covered in sawdust!!
I’m thinking of piping the exhaust over to the wall, up the wall, and out the window (probably facing it down with an elbow).
Anyone do something like this? How long and what kind of lift could it handle? Is the exhaust just as powerful as the suction? I understand about air replacement, and will deal with that later. I have an idea about that …
