When running a dust collection system, the diameter of the pipe will limit how much air will move (CFM). Size of pipe isn't as critical to vacuum systems because of the static pressure difference. The blowers are made different for each type. I do have a central vac set up in my shop that I plan to run to the SCMS port, with the cyclone running a 6" pipe to a yet to be built shroud behind the unit. I hope it will work. Jim.
