I have a lot of 6 inch metal ducting that I never returned to the store when I put in my forced air zoned system in my 4 room shop. It seems to be a logical step to install it to increase my air flow, and I was going to upgrade to the 2 HP Shop fox which appears to have better parameters than the Grizzly 2 hp. The only difference appears to be the impeller. The Grizzly impeller is aluminum alloy and the Shop Fox is steel.

Is the Woodmagazine article online?
