I have one of those ceiling mount Jet units (AFS-1000B) and I rarely use it. It does a good job of capturing the very fine dust particles that are floating in the air. If I could do it over again I’m not sure I would buy it—primarily because I just don’t use it that often.

I would think that a small dust collector or maybe even a good shop vac with a dust deputy—is all that you really need for a bandsaw. It probably won’t meet OSHA standards, but it will make clean-up less of a chore.
