Here’s some of my dust collector adventure! It was a big decision to cut the concrete in my basement shop!

That’s some nice duct working you’ve got there. I see we have the same taste in Dust collectors! I’m still hooking mine up again after the move upstairs. So is there a blast gate for the table saw as well?

Thanks for all the compliments. I have been pleased with the results. I think I was most proud of the cheap and simple pipe hangers.

There’s a right way to do things and there’s the “make do” way. You chose the right way. Kudos.

Thanks for all the comments. The system is working quite well. The only thing I would possibly do different is select a different dust collector. the Oneida system is a very good system but other brands on the market are much shorter which leaves room for a larger barrel. Of course I have only 8 foot ceilings in my basement shop. The blower motor is between my floor joists.
