Topic tags/keywords: dust collection question gloat

Several months ago, before I joined the forum, an employee of my brother’s GAVE ME FOR FREE a Delta AP400 D.C.

Minor Gloat:
Lowes is clearancing out all of the AP400 D.C’s. I just bought one of the last two in my area for $105.10.

So, now what do I do with it? Fortunately for me I am in the process of setting up a permanant system. I haven’t gotten so far along that modifying will be a problem. Is there a way to piggy-back the two systems together? Would it help? Would I be better off basically running two separate systems? Should I sell the two of them and upgrade to a better system all together?

Wow, that was a lot of questions all at once. Let me know what you think.

there is no real way to piggy back those together as the ductwork will only introduce air turbulence and more trouble that it will attempt to solve. Best option if you want to keep those 2 is to have them separately connected to different machines – more of a dedicated DC for each Major tool… although that does mean more wasted floor space (and kind of contradicting to the whole portable – so you can move it around – so that it takes less space design of the AP400). but if you can – that might work, or you can upgrade to something bigger that can be permanently installed with ductwork – which seems like it’s what you’re after anyways.

I just went through similar ideas, and passed on a Delta AP400 for $60, but just got a Jet 1100DC that can handle a little more.
