I’ve got a Delta 760-50 dust collector. I put a trashcan under it with a cyclone lid, and it seems to work well enough (a lot of dust still gets in the bag, but no large particles). I split the hose coming from the trashcan (4”) to run to a table saw and a planer. Each of these split hoses has a blast gate. However, as you can see in the picture, the whole setup is quite “droopy”. That is, it seems like there is a lot of stress on the joint between the hose and the cyclone lid from the weight of the hose hanging down, especially with the splitter and blast gates attached.
Should I worry about this/try to fix it? I’m sure the 180 degree turn (from up to down) the hose makes is not good for the airflow. Would anyone recommend that I build some kind of support for the hose/splitter on/near the collector?
