So I am pretty much sold on the HF dust collector with the upgraded wynn filter and the thein separator if I do in fact get one. My question is this….... Do they really make that much of a difference? I really don’t have issues with the big particles, its the tiny crap (dust) that covers my garage that infuriates me (and more importantly the wife!). Would adding a DC considerably cut down on this?

Thanks

Tyson

My experience with the same setup is yes, considerably. But It’s not the whole answer and I still get dust all over from sources other than those that are hooked up to the DC. ROS, router, shop vac, and other hand tools generate their share of air polution in my shop. I’m thinking seriously about one of the air filtration units.

I have that same setup for my garage shop, and it works great. I’m pleased with the result.

My HF dust collector does a great job of keeping the big stuff out of sight and reducing my cleanup time. One of my best Craigslist purchases was a Jet AFS-1000B air filtration unit for $125.00. The latter does a much better job of clearing the air of dust than the HF does. I blow out the filter on a regular basis and can really see how good of a job it does. The only downside is I don’t want to listen to it run constently so I don’t use it as much as I probably should….....
