...I suppose I could do two as well maybe share the same chip collector? ...

When you say chip collector, are you talking about a cyclone? I cannot seen any point of having 2 DCs going through the same cyclone. Usually the cyclone is before the DC impeller. On the other hand, if you are just going to put a bin of some kind outside the shop to collect the bulk of the dust that should be fine but just make sure that you can close off the one that is not in use so that it does not try to blow dust back through the ductwork for that one. Also, if you really are going to vent outside, you may want to make a weatherproof enclosure outside that can house the DC motor as well to get much of the noise outside too.
