I would probably shy away from 40’ runs with a shop vac if it were me, unless it’s a ridiculously good shop vac. I used a shop vac + dust deputy for a while for my bandsaw, table saw, miter saw, and radial arm saw. It was a bit under powered for the RAS, but for everything else it did alright. I agree with Fridge, jointer and/or planer shavings clogged the 2-1/2” hose up pretty good. Same with lathe shavings
