Hi, got a question about my shop vac, I can find no specs on it must be discontinued sears don’t list it any more and can’t find one on ebay either. I have a Craftsman 8 gal shop vac, I did find it is a 9 amp and 3.5 HP. 1 1/4 inch hose. I want to build a dust collector for it.

will it have enough power for a dust collector to work, I noticed on the utubes they all use at least 2” hose. will my vac work with 2” hose or will it cut down on the suction. a larger vac is not in the cards. I don’t expect an increase in efficiency but it will make emptying the vac less messy. Thanks Mike
