Topic tags/keywords: shop dust collection workshop woodworking vacuum ridgid rockler question

Hey all, I have a quick question about my little dust collection setup I am currently working on. I bought the Dust Right from Rockler and have it hooked up to my shop-vac. Now, I piped out of the bottom of my table saw to a 2 and a 1/2 inch hose, so I can use the hose from my vacuum. Now, in these pictures, how much of an issue if the 90 to a relatively long horizontal section of pipe going to be? Just wondering if it will be an issue now and in the future. TIA

Generally speaking, the sharp 90’s restrict air flow, but you’ll be moving so little with a shop vac that I doubt it will make a measurable difference. But the real answer is to try it and see if you get what you expect out of the set up.

Won’t be an issue. It looks really efficient and should collect everything that doesn’t sneak out of the top of the saw.

If you’re using a phone for pictures, hold the camera horizontally (wide/sideways) and they should orient correctly.

jones424 I can’t agree more. Hey Fred! I should be testing it out in the next few days. And thanks Andybb, as far as the pictures I think I read that if you drop them before hand it fixes it so I’m gonna try that next time. Thanks for the comment
