Hi, I’m working on installing the proper DC in a one car garage (12×20’) shop and was thinking of the Rockwell wall-mounted dust collector because of its small size and reasonable price.
I have a window in the garage, so I thought I would wall mount the DC by the window and run a short length of 4” hose through a cut-out in the window. Then attach the filter bag to the hose on the outside of the window (so I don’t have saw dust piled by the side of the house).
I also plan to convert a 5 gallon pail to a min-cyclone to capture most of the material before it gets to the filter bag.
My largest tool is 1 1/2 hp Sears Contractor table saw and would not be more than 6-7 feet away from the DC.
Does anyone see any problems with this set-up?
Thanks in advance.
