So I’m at the point where I feel I need a proper dust collection system for my garage.
I currently run a shop vac with a DIY cyclone separator on my Longmill setup. It has
served me well. Cons is that it dedicated pretty much 99% to my Longmill setup, although
I can detach and hook it up to my router table.
I think it’s time to move up a notch. I do not have any experience with the dedicated
bag dust collectors so be gentle on me.
Currently I have the following in the shop.
- Longmill 30x30
- Router Table
- Mitre saw
- Table saw
- Thickness Planer
The Longmill, Router table and Mitre are my most heavily used with the table saw
barely used at the moment.
I’m currently looking at a 1-2hp dust collector system. Thoughts?
Will it be enough for my needs?
Are they super loud compared to my shop vac?
Max distance of runs?
I have a 3D printer and can print my own connectors if that is an cost savings option?
Anyhoo, looking for options/ideas/tips/trick and opinions (we know everyone’s got them).
