Thanks for the replies there is defintly a science involved when it comes to figuring this out on a large scale..

The little research I have done I read that the ribbed pipe reduces the air flow.

The shop vac I have actually sucks in the container so either there is an issue with the hose or it’s powerfully enough.

If you see my workshop post there is an empty unit to the left where I intend on storing the vacuum and making a box instead of the bucket for the cyclone to sit on this will allow me to do away with the bucket that has been sucked in so many times that it has permantly deformed the bucket. And increase the volume for the collecter.

The pipe will run up the wall to the roofthen spit 2 ways going to drill press and then along main beam with a few droppers with valves.

I only plan on installing maybe 5 to 7 meters of pipe with 3 or 4 points for tools and a sweep

Thanks again for the advice
