forget the shop vac it will not do what you need,their for suction you need volume of air on a sander like that.if your tight on budget you could try the HF but in my opinion a cheap dust collector that needs a lot of upgrades to be a real dc.

Can’t disagree with that… Once you start working to a limited (as opposed to a limiting) budget, it’s just gonna cost more and more for upgrades and workarounds.

Either way, for practicality, I will not suggest the cheapest… when it comes to shop-vacs (colloquially) a dust deputy is your best friend and for a non-cyclone dust extractor, a super dust deputy should be considered.

... Don t think I ll be buying a 3hp for just this one project…

The chances of a “single use” is nearly as far fetched as marrying only once… does happen, but don’t expect it.
