    Want2B, 35 pounds would help me for sure, but more like 60 would be better ...

    DirtDawber, My dust collector is a 2 hp cyclone from Penn State. It is in the garage area in the back of the shop. I used a fair amount of 6" plastic to keep up the efficiency. I haven't had a problem except I replaced the canister pleated filter with a dust bag. The pleated filter eventually plugs and I couldn't find a way to clean it. the felt bag can be thrown in a washer (at a laundromat ). I use an X-10 remote that hooks to my apron and controls everything just fine.

    Silverfoot...thank you very much

    Thanks, KT!! Appreciate it. Seems like I am getting up earlier each day to come in to the shop. The work keeps coming in, so having trouble finding time to get into trouble...

    John, Congrats to you and your wife on the move to God's country and the new shop. It looks terrific! You're going to love it! Work will actually become fun and life is waaaaaaaay more enjoyable "Up Nort" as the upers say. You are not that far from me so I think that my bride and I will be taking a ride and surprise you in the very near future. Again, congratulations and enjoy the clean air!
