Just wanting to get some ideas from you guys who own 718’s. I am definitely lacking in the dust collection department. I currently am running the 2hp (cough) harbor freight with a thien separator with a 4” hose. I’ve pretty much hopped up the collector as much as possible, and she still just cannot do it. I’ve mounted the blower on top of the separator. I’ve stepped up the suction to a 6” inlet. But, I only have a 4” hose to the planer.
So I’m wondering what everyone else is running, and if you’re happy with it. I’ve thought about reworking the hat on top of the planer to a 6”. I know it would help some, but I’m not sure it would be enough.
I’m going to post this a few other places looking for as much input as possible.
