LJ’s. I need to ask for some help here on my DC. I’ve read forums and books, but for some reason the info is not computing. I need some blunt, straight forward info to get it through my thick head.
Here’s my situation I have a 8×14 shop that’s beyond tiny. I have to be very creative with my equipment purchases and floor space. Getting ready to do more work indoors, I’ve taken apart my DC(Delta 50-850)and wall mounted it, motor up, inlet down. I will be building a separator in the next day or two, and I want to vent the exhaust outside.
1. Is this a stupid idea?
From my understanding, shorter runs from DC to machine are best. I just want to know if the same is true for the exhaust. Or once your past the impeller and on the way out isn’t as vital.
Your help is greatly appreciated
