I believe both Menards and Home Depot and probably Lowe’s can get the 5”, 26 guage, just not a shelf item. And others have found it to be cheaper than PVC. I bought mine from a heating supply company. I do not have a cyclone, no real estate to park it in. My collector is a 2 HP from north state machinery about 25 years ago. It draws 9.4 amps on 250 volts. I replaced the bags with the Jet pleated filter and added a vortex cone. Check your amps while running if you can. Motor tags from overseas are inaccurate these days. Mine is a stock impeller, unknown diameter. I have read that an anemeter does not really work for this, so I will be ordering from Dwyer. About $150. I have connected their instruments many times, and they are a long established company. Look up dust collector ductwork on Wood magazine.
