None of the stores within 200 miles of my house had any dust collectors in stock. I’m in the process of upgrading my HF DC that I purchased off CL for $100. It’s the gray model with the aluminum heat soak on the motor.

Had I seen this thread before you pulled the trigger on the HF model, I would have given you a few monetary reasons not to go the upgrade route. But since you have it, and want to ‘tinker’ with it, my thread has a couple of ideas that you might want to look at.

I have no problems spinning the larger Rikon impeller with the motor. You will want to enlarge the intake on the blower housing to 6” to get maximum benefit from that upgrade.
