    Re: 1hp dust collector enough for garage?

    What do you guys think of this? It's FS on CL in my area. 3 HP. Way overkill but at least I won't outgrow it. Asking price is 250.00. It states it runs on 110 or 220? I though anything over 1.5 was all 220.

      is it me, or do these two dust collectors seem to be just a little to similar?

          Good price. Not sure how you'd get a true 3HP out of 110V, but stranger things have been known to happen...

          Expect to put some extra $$ into fine filtration bags or better yet, cartridges... But that is a good start...

            Its a Craftsman style HP rating.

            Same as they use on their shop vacs.
            "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
            John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

              Since loss of airflow is a problem for the trunk lineforlow cost/power units, has anyone tried 6" dia. for the main line and then used 4" drops?

                thanks for all of the good information and discussion. i believe that i see one of those harbor freight 2 hp dc's in my future. up to this point i've just been living with sawdust everywhere but fired up a planer for the first time last night...dc of some kind is no longer optional. i couldn't believe how fast i created a mound of sawdust.
