“and vent the air into the attic or outside.”
attic,for some reason, seems like a really bad idea. if ya vent outside, youre going to need makeup air. youll be pulling quite a few CFM’s of air out of the shop every.well…minute.

when i was set up, i had that exact same unit with a 55 gallon seperator with a thein baffle. 26’ main run with drops for sanding station, router table, jointer/planer( had them side by side and easy to switch machines), TS, miter saw, and floor sweep. 6” mains up to blast gates, then 4” to the machines. it worked great for me. doesnt mean it got all dust, but it got most of it.
