If you could go back and do it over again, would you go with a different unit? I’ve heard good things about some of the smaller Grizzly units.

Probably not. I could afford the complete units, but I like tinkering with ‘stuff’, so this particular project has been fun (unlike a few of my other projects).

I think this 3hp Grizzly: https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-3-HP-Portable-Cyclone-Dust-Collector/G0862 for $1295 + $119 shipping, is what I would have gone with, had I not decided to go the modded HF route. A lot of bang for the buck. But it would be extreme overkill for my basement workshop, and about $400 more than what I’ll have into my HF/Rikon/SDD system. Now their 1.5hp at $699 + $119 shipping: https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-1-1-2-HP-Portable-Cyclone-Dust-Collector/G0860 is where you start to begin thinking ‘Maybe I should’ve just…’.
