    Re: Dust collection Pictures

    I kept mine really really simple.

    I have my Jet/DustDog collector next to my table saw. I have a 25' hose coiled up under my saw table connecting the two. When I need to use it on my drum sander or shaper, I pull it off the saw, pull it over the drum sander and go to work. Been this way for 2 years now. I just can't see running 50 feet of 4" PCV and blast gates ($$$$$$) and reducers and "T's" and "Y's" and smaller hoses and bigger houses and having to run around opening this and closing that. It takes me less than a minute to re-route my hose and i'm good to go. I also don't want my collector across the shop or back in my storage area. It's remote controlled and I don't want it getting blocked all the time. Plus, I like being able to see it at a glance to see if it's getting full. Doing raised panels fills it in no time.

    You mention you spent $575 on your system for parts only, no time figured in. Don't take this the wrong way, but you could have spent less than that on a really good high filteration dust collector and 25' hose and had money left over.

    this is the exact same one I bought 2 years ago. The filter is great. Just crank the handle and it knocks all the dust from the inside. Emptying the bag is not the easiest but atleast I can see when it's getting full.
