Kelly Wow! All the bells and whistles. I don’t have the floor space in my shop for all the dust collectors. You have quite a few…a resident expert????

The harbor freight appears to meet the needs up close and personal. Probably the same for Jim.

As I mentioned I have 6 inch piping left over from ducting four rooms. My logistics and chaos appear to not allow for the limited suction in either the HF or Delta that I have? The impeller size increasing cfm and pressure seems like the way to go, given my situation?

another forum topic suggested changing the HF impeller for another brand which significantly improved the smaller HF impeller.

Lots to think about?

going out to take advantage of a nice day to finish assembly of doors I am making for my Lawn Tractor/wood shed.

Be back later!
