Thanks AHuxley, Jim, and Kelly!

My dust collector is outside the shop ( in the garden shed next to the shop), with the Thein chip collector that removes particles other than fine dust.

Jim I am looking at space (footprint) of the collectors. Bought a Harbor Freight dust collector (still in the box) as I was thinking about doing what you have done. I’m planning on selling my Delta and the Harbor Freight and opting for a 2 hp unit without a cyclone as I will be using a Thein chip collector.

I’m wanting to get enough suction to pull it away from my cabinet saw or my new 17 inch bandsaw.
