Hey guys, I have been doing research on Dust Collection but I wanted to get some feedback to see if it seems like a sound solution.
My plan is to buy the HF 2 hp unit and mount it in a small closet sized off shoot in my garage. On the opposite side of the wall is where we keep our trash cans outside, so I am planning on getting another trash can and building a Thein separator to sit on it. I figured with the separator outside it would make it easier, and cleaner to empty, and not take up space in the shop.
As far as filtering I was thinking of just filtering it outside in to a bucket filled with water to keep the outside fines down. I have seen similar water traps for dryer outlets like in the link below.
Do you think the lint trap solution would work? I have a lemon tree and a shed pretty near the outside of the shop, and the neighbors house 10 feet beyond that so I don’t want a ton of fines flying around outside. If the outside filtering isn’t an option. I guess I could just get a .5 micron filter.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
