I’ve gotta be honest: dust collection has been the most complicated thing that I’ve yet encountered in woodworking. I’ve posted separately about my planning to build out a very small shop in a home I’m building, but I still feel as clueless as ever about dust collection. To make matters more complicated, in the extremely small space I’m working in now, I have no idea what to do for dust collection over the next year (until my new home is built).

I’m thinking hard about getting the little 3/4 hp “wall mount” unit from Rockler, adding a Dust Deputy (or similar) inline and building a little cart for the rig, with the thought that I might be able to get by with that mounted permanently and exhausting to the outside in my future shop. What I’m stuck with is wondering if I could get by with some sort of shop vac type solution for the short term instead without the whole thing being too unwieldy to move around as needed.
