Hey Fellow Woodworkers! My first time sharing ideas on here, so here goes!
My woodworking space is a fully insulated 10×16 shed/shop. Its small but it works for now! I have it heated and cooled. My thought is to relocate all or most of my HF 2 hp dust collection out the wall to a very small shed-outside the “shop”. I’m very tight on space, but more importantly I want to keep more fine dust out, and less noise if possible. I’ve considered building a 3’x4’x54”High doghouse outside against the wall. I would mount the motor directly into the round green collection thingy, remove the stand, cut the plastic bag down to about 12” high, and leave the filter on top. (as is 5 micron)
I would have a chip separator either inside or outside. (outside ideally, but hard to keep track of filling)
I would want some sort of return air filter of some sort to capture fine dust, but allow air to return to the shop space.
I’ve thought about removing the air filter outside on the collector to save space.
I would use a remote control for turning it on.
Any idea of using a quality furnace filter mounted in a box for return air?
