Welcome to the board! Always good to see new members. The system you bought apears to be a vacuum system as opposed to a dust collection. The difference is significant, a vacuum moves small amounts of air through small pipes (high static pressure) while a DC moves huge amounts of air through larger ducts (low static pressure). Generally speaking, each is meant to do their job, and not the other. So that system should serve well as a vac using the existing piping, it won’t replace or substitute for a DC (my opinion). So it could be set up to serve your smaller tools, cleanup duties, and such things; it might even keep chips out of your saw cabinet, etc. But it’s not going to capture the finest dust from any of the stationary tools. Good luck with your effort!
