The seller is moving to a larger house and a much bigger (double area +) workshop space and adding larger machines. His new DC tubing system will need to be 4”s at least and more. My shop will be tiny in comparison with just a few basic machines to start off. I’m beginning to understand the ‘why’s and wherefores’ of DC systems in more detail. Thank you all ! Dreams, If I use 20’ or so of 2-1/2” it would be the max for the foreseeable future! I’ll see how the trusty 8 Gal. Shop-Vac handles the head end.
