I have a nice older delta radial arm saw and no miter saw at this point. I have a pentz cyclone that I built a few years ago. When I was in my old shop I had a miter saw and had it hooked up to the cyclone. I rarely fired up the cyclone just to make a quick cut, it was loud, and I hated to start up the 5hp motor just for a quick cut. If I was cutting a bunch of parts I would turn it on, but usually there was just a huge pile of dust there. Now I am in my new shop and have the cyclone in my garage so its really quiet, I don't have a miter saw any more just a radial arm. The radial arm saw came with a dust hood thing that seems to work well at gathering the dust. Do most of you use your cyclone if you have one or a shop vac, possibly with a mini cyclone attached? I don't have a shop vac at this point but they are fairly cheap and it would also be nice to have one so I could vac the shop floor or use when free hand routing. Another possibility is to use my house central vac system and build a cyclone for it. The downside to that is I can't roll it around to use when routing unless I installed a lot of drops for hoses in the central vac line. Thoughts?
