Well, after planning this for a year my shop is finally fixing to happen. It started with I didn't want to build a shop at a house that my wife and I wouldn't stay at for at least 10 years. Since January we've listed/sold our house, moved, found out we couldn't build the shop where we wanted, applied for and got a zoning variance, and now getting quotes for the shop. I even got a picture of the stakes in the ground
The shop's going to be 22' x 26' and I'm going to install a 3hp cyclone and duct work to get it started. Since I'm out of work right now, doing some digging on ductwork and the DC. Looking at the grizzly and oneida, not sure if there's some other good 3hp cyclone models to look at?
Also ducting, i can't afford the fancy ducting like grizzly/woodcraft sells. The snaplock furnace ducting at Home Depot looks very affordable. Are there any downsides to that versus PVC, or any better suppliers for furnace ducting/PVC? I'm looking at about 28' of ducting, 2 Y's, 3 90's in at least 6" ducting, with blast gates and 4" reducers with around a $500 max budget. I'd like to squeeze 3 more Y's and gates in too so I don't have to unhook hoses, but they can come later if they don't meet the budget.
