Looking at the DC1100 for $300. But I wanna know if getting this or the Delta 50-760 would be a better choice with the clear bag and 1-micron filter @ $400 from amazon…

I’m pretty much a newb. Currectly using smallish shopvac. I want to connect it to the table saw and router for now… Its in my garage, and I always move everything outside so I don’t have dust all over the garage/storage area…

I do have a used jointer, but it needs to be assembled and cleaned up.

I have the Delta 50-760 right now. I’ve had it for about a year and a half. Wood magazine did a head to head of several DCs and the Delta was their “best buy.” I’ve been very satisfied with the Delta so far. I picked it up at Rockler on sale for $349 so I think you might find a better sale price if you keep your eyes open. On the flip side, if you have the free delivery option on Amazon, they’ll put it on your doorstep!

Don’t forget about all the other costs of a DC system. I spent almost as much $$ on the blast gates, adapters, and hose as I did on the collector itself!

My only experience is with the Delta so I may just be used to this one. I’ll see if I can track down the issue # for the comparison article so you can look it up.
