    I need lower dust collector bags......

    I've got two model 75 Powermatic dust collectors. Been using plastic bags on one and I'm not a fan. I ordered two bags for a model 73, which turns out are too small.

    Anyone have a good source? Prefferably USA made? or, anywhere other than Com-Chi made?

    I've been using the HF bags. Very cheap and very sturdy. Although probably made overseas. Have to call them to order, they are not available on the web site

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    I use the construction site cleanup bags - black plastic, I think they are 3 mil, available from Home Depot and such stores for about 30 cents each. They are probably slightly large in diameter, so I just make a neat fold under the clamp.

    I'm looking to get away from the plastic. Two reasons, flow and ability to seal.

    Karl i think you could easily get these from an American company and made in USA. Try Oneida Air they specialise in only dust collection and know their business.

    Give them a call excellent customer service.

    Thanks Vaughn, I called and ordered two bags from them. They aren't screwing around. $105 a bag. Ouch.

    I'm probably have Oneida build a dust collector when I get into a new building.
