I have a Shop Vac, 5 hp (that's what THEY call it), 12 gal., hooked up to my bandsaw. It is the only dust collection system I have in my shop. For me, it is important to have it when cutting Osage Orange, red cedar and spalted woods. But, I find that the filter clogs up long before and significant amount of material builds up in the tub.
Now, I'm conflicted. Use a less fine filter and get dust back into the air I'm breathing or leave alone and put up with an inefficient unit?
Wat do y'all do?
