You have a underpowered chip picker-upper, dust re-distributor. Basically worse than useless as you are putting the deadly fine dust into the air under power.

Your “buddy” gave it to you for a reason. It is junk. For ONE tool, start with a 3 HP with pleated canisters, preferably with a cyclone in front. The Onedia is a good choice. I am waiting for my 5 HP ClearView as my 1 3/4 Jet, with canister, was only useable if I had it on a cart and connected one machine at a time. 3 to 5 is what you need for just one TS or BS if you want it ducted and to actually work.

2 1/2 is what you use on a vacuum cleaner for a pad sander.
