I’ve read a number of threads on dust collecting but i think I need to post because my situation seems to be A LOT different from others.
1. We live in a condo. I “negotiated” with my husband, a space that will probably be 8FT X 7Ft for my shop. We’re talking small, but it’ll beat the crap out of doing stuff on the patio just on the fact i’ll finally have temperature control (yay! heat & air conditioning)
2. This room will be rightnextto our kitchen AND laundry area. Meaning i am looking for a solution that sucks up every tiny particle of dust – I don’t want exotic wood dust on my bake chicken, nor will my husband tolerate floating dust (dust allergies, and we all know small partials of dust are bad for us.
and to add to these logistics – i’m in a condo. my solution needs to be curious (as much as possible) to the people who live around me (on person above us). i don’t want the cyclone mega 4800 dust collector if it sounds like a missile launch. it would also be considerate of me not to annoy my husband, as he did compromise and give me space in the tiny condo. So it should at least be as quiet as possible
so shop vac is out. but a good dust collector and air filtration system, i’m willing to pay, with whatever is in reason (which is a broad stroke statement). The price should probably shock me, but maybe not, i expect i’ll be paying an amount that makes me go “hmmmmmm, ok yeah it’s worth it” for an uber good dust collector that isn’t loud.
i did see this: ” http://www.harborfreight.com/2-hp-industrial-5-micron-dust-collector-97869.html":http://www.harborfreight.com/2-hp-industrial-5-micron-dust-collector-97869.html but didn’t know how loud it was. I do know it has a good CFM rating
machines: mini lathe (with fine sanding), scroll saw, Rikon 10-305 Bandsaw With Fence 10-Inch and sanding with a osolating sander (and electronic hand sander).
i’m psyched this is going to happen. Alright suggestions very much appreciated.
