Your system certainly looks well constructed and thought out. I really like the section for your lathe. How powerful is your dust collector. When I installed my system I read that even a smooth 90º has more resistance than a smooth 45º corner, so I was trying to make the runs as straight as possible with wide radii. Are you happy with the suction so far?

do not use 90º unless you need it, there were two important things for me. noise and functionality, it was enough for my workshop and my work, I want you to pay attention, my pipe system is under, if you will collect the pipes from the ceiling, use a slightly larger air pump.

Very interesting. Like your flip unit. Great to see the metal lathe. It opens up a whole new world by combining it with wood work. One can build things for the shop that you can’t otherwise, and then used with wood to. I use mine with wood all the time. Have an air pipe there to pick up the shavings.

Very nice!

I’m looking to upgrade my dust collection. One thing I think about is velocity. My DC blower is rated 1550 CFM. Everybody knows it doesn’t really do that.

In a 6” (15 cm) diameter pipe, the flow would be 89 mph (150 km/h). We know that at that speed, the air will not turn corners well.

In a 4” (10 cm) diameter pipe, the velocity would be 200 mph ( 337 km/h), which is crazy – surely doesn’t happen – so the pipe will certainly significantly reduce air flow.

In a 12” (30.5 cm) diameter pipe, the flow would be 22 mph (37 km/h). At that speed chips will fall to the bottom and probably accumulate in the pipe.

So, somewhere in between 6” and 12” may be the sweet spot.

But that is just theory. Your system is real (not theory) and works for you now. It is beautifully made.

final connection measurements are important. the air that the workshop needs to get from outside is important. too much suction speed whistling at the machine. if more than one machine is used at the same time.there are many details to be calculated.

speed and flow rate is very important.
no more than sound function

Extremely custom and awe inspiring for sure. Only criticism would be that you’re no restricted in your sanding with your spindle sander with it being in the corner and no way to stretch it out for larger pieces. Could be that you only work with smaller pieces. Thanks for sharing.
