I can t help on the layout but will highly recommend getting both a dust collection system and a air cleaner system especially in the basement because fine dust is what can cause health issues for you and your family. If you are cutting plywood or mdf products fine dust will travel throughout the house every time you open the door it will cause a vacuum effect and pull dust everywhere. If you ever did any drywall sanding, even a little area the dust goes everywhere in the room. Just my 2 cents…

Also if it s a small area you can always use the rockler dust right system direct connect, and connect right to the tool to minimize ductwork throughout the basement. I do it in my garage and it s 20×20 space. Works great for me.

wow never seen the dust right system before…is it really any difference than the HF system though? They have the exact same CCF and can both be wall mounted….my one question is how do you neatly coil up the 4” hose? I’d need a 18’ run approx.

I like the idea of having 4” ports (or hoods) on all my tools and then just plugging in the dust right (or HF) before I turn it on. I’m not using my shop enough to warrant permanent piping.
