    Delta AP400 Dust Collector

    Does anyone have experience with the Delta AP400 dust collector? I am considering purchasing for my shop. If I read correctly the bags are 30 micron which is not the best for fine dust collection. I intend to use this on my planer and table saw at this time. I see 1 and 5 micron replacement bags at pennstate for about $100.00 that could be upgraded at a later time for fine sanding dust collection.

    Thanks

    I have gotten by with that one for a couple years. I just ordered an American Fabric Filter bag for it for about $100 based on a lot of recommendations here and elsewhere. Works fine for one tool at a time. I run my intake to a manifold of blast gates; 1 to the lower TS, 1 that roams from the over arm and the router fence, 1 to the RT lower, 1 to the jointer or planer. The manifold is at the end of just enough hose to reach the ground and gates all hoses at that point. Lowe's has been dumping them from $45 to around $70 depending on store and area.

    Brain, Delta has a new model out that comes with either 1 or 5 micron bags included....also Steel City has a 700 CMF 1HP model that comes witha 1 micron bag standard that retails for around $210...just a few more options.

    Thanks for the lead... I checked on lunch and they are all gone

    I might check out some other options as this one would be $200 Shipped. Lowes offered me the 50-720 delivered for $259 with no shipping costs.
