Does it have the power to pull vertical ?
I’ve been happy with the HF dust collector. It has always cleared all saw dust and chips I’ve thrown at it. I built a pvc collector “manifold” to consolidate my connections….
Router box, table saw and the small fitting with the blue aerosol cap now has a vac hose attached to a oscillating spindle sander (sits in front of the post in center of pic) and can be switched to router fence.
I am tired of stepping over the hoses!!
I want to turn the “y”s around (at router) and reconfigure things so that pvc goes UP the post to the ceiling and across the ceiling to the collector. The post is just 7 feet tall and the run to the collector is 11 feet, then back down to the blower. PVC up and across to combat resistance, but probably still flex hose from jointer to the post area.
So, the duct would be smoother but longer, and have a vertical component. It’s just a 2 car garage.
Does anyone use the HF collector in this way? Does it have enough umph?
