I’ve got a HF dust collector with a Thien separator (all 5” fittings) and a Wynn .5 micron filter. From there, I’m going about 15’ across the ceiling with 5” metal snap-together duct. What I’m trying to figure out is, what’s the best way to get it to my table saw?
I was going to come down the pole with more 5” metal to a blast gate and then adapt to 4” flex for the 10’ into my table saw. I was originally going to go 5” all the way to the saw, but it seems everyone is using 4” – plus, I’d eventually like to get a 2-1/2” hose above the blade and with 4” below, I’d still have enough draw above.
Will the 5” metal fit on to a 5” blast gate? How would you adapt to 4”?
Here’s a pic to show you what I mean:
Any suggestions would greatly appreciated.
