You mentioned that you just had a heater installed. Remember that when venting outside, your heat goes out with the dust. AC too, if you have it. I don t understand the outside venting that many posters want to do. If you are collecting the chips inside, the DC is inside, what is the gain? I converted my collector to a Jet pleated filter, and really have no dust. I added a Wen air filter for my hand sanding dust. My 2 HP machine has about a 70 db noise level venting inside. I used 5” steel duct.

I need to do this cheap. I know bag filters aren’t very good and I can’t afford dust collector, pipe, blast gates, cyclone and an after market filter. Where I’m putting the dust collector there is an old door that I’ve insulated and closed permanently. If I collect the chips inside then vent outside through the old plywood door I don’t need a filter so I’ll save money which at this point is very good. I can barely afford the wood to do projects at the moment but the dust is driving me insane. One step at a time
