I have the 60 HH. Most of my dust makes it to the DC but it does throw a little out the infeed side. I’m connected to a Powermatic 1.75 hp DC that sits immediately next to the machine through just a few feet of pipe. I would doubt your 650 CFM unit is up to the task but the HF should be able to handle it.

I don’t think taping the voids where the machine mounts to the base will do anything. I have not noticed a large opening near the adjustment handle but I’ll look next time I’m in the shop.
