I own a 1HP Rikon dust collector and am wondering if adding a super dust deputy will improve upon it. That is, will I have enough air flow left to make it effective ? I currently can not upgrade to a bigger dust collector because I am limited by the amp load that my circuits can take.
The Dust collector by itself works fine with the planer and saw but lacks suction with my jointer. Additionally, when using it with the planer I often have to stop to clean the hose from buildup occuring at the front of the wye. I am hoping a cyclone unit will solve that since everything falls into the drum.
Anybody has experience using the dust deputy with a smaller dust collector ?
