I just purchased a used, like new JET DC-1100.
I would like to put the JET in my shop attic, but my overhead is a little short. I can remove the caster to gain a couple of inches, but still need the JET to be abut 6” shorter. Is there a filter bag that would fit that is shorter? And would the shorter bag, if available compromise the performance? Or could I just hang the Jet bag a high as possible and go with that? I am a hobbyist so do not have a great volume of debris.

Thank you

I have a very low ceiling in the attic of my shed (5’) where my JET DC-1100 is and I removed the upper bag completely and covered the opening with a piece of plywood. But I also built a cyclone dust collector over a bin that collects the sawdust before it gets to the DC-1100.
The DC-1100 provides the vacuum and filtered air and the cyclone with the bin acts as the lower bag of the DC to catch the dust. This system is very efficient and is at peak performance all the time.

I believe that the canister filters are shorter than the filter bags and do a much better job : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

I ordered and received a WYNN 35A nano filter. Will add some brackets to connect to turnbuckles as shown on But I seem to remember someone mentioning placing window screen below filter to prevent chunks flying into and damaging filter. Was it window screen or somthing with a bigger mess?

Thank you
