If you want to collect sawdust or shavings from a table saw, jointer or planer, then a real dust collector with a 4 inch or larger hose is your only choice. Even a very powerful shop vacuum doesn’t generate the air flow necessary to do a good job. I own the most powerful shop vacuum Ridgid makes and it is not even close to adequate collecting the shavings from my lunchbox planer or jointer.

Depending on your budget, you may want to consider one of the cyclone dust collectors.
