Hi there. after 4yrs of filter bag, I’m no longer a fan of bags. I’m looking into cyclones. My shop is approx 600 sq ft
by 9.2 Hi. a 3 door garage. I’m a hobbyist sues the shop on days off. I run 1 machine at a time, but some like table saw, 14 in band saw and a router w/ table will have 2 ports open, top and bottom. main ducting snap lock 6 in, the longest run 25-30 ft, drops of 5 in, some reduced to 4 in at the machine. Ducting from HD or Low’s 30 g, I hope they will not collapse, as some claim they do. Looking at my shop size, I don’t want to spend extra or buy the extreme, the extra bucks can use for ducting. I was going to build my own cyclone, but forget the trouble. Currently, I’ve 2 hp PSI DC works well, but no more bags.
Tempest 2 1/2 hp $1360. filter 600 sq ft
Tempest 3 1/2 hp $ 1680. filter 700 sq ft
Oneida V-3000 3 hp $ 1860 filter 92 sq ft
Can any one tell me which cyclone would be good enough for my shop size and my type and AMT of usage. Would I be OK with 30 g. snap lock ducting. Thank you all.
I spoke to PSI, and they said for my shop a 21/2 hp Tempest is more than enough. But, I want a 3 or 31/2 hp so that I will not regret later. I’v been also looking at Oneida V-3000 system with silencer build in.
