I’m considering a new dust collector and just wondering…Has anyone tried hooking up two smaller units to a pre-separator? I wonder if I put a “y” adapter on the pre-separator if I could effectively multiply the CFM or doesn’t it work like that? the benefit is that I can keep my current collector and just buy another smaller unit vs. upgrading to one big unit. This of course assumes that space is not an issue. Any thoughts?

-- I keep cutting and cutting and it's STILL too short

StumpyNubs did someting some experimenting with this idea. You’ll have to do some searching, but he talks about it in this video:
