    My lungs are smiling.

    Finally picked up a HF collector. Only had to redrill 2 holes and add one nut. Went together pretty well...just need to run some hose/pipe and I'll be sucking some dust up!

    You and your lungs will enjoy that, been very happy with mine. Need to build the Thein separator for mine yet, mostly been using it on the tablesaw. I finally bought some of the quick connects to put on the flex hose to make it easier to get on/off the other tool outlets so I'll use it on the others more often now.

    Purple? It may look good in Vaughn's shop but I can't do purple. I'm from Kansas and I'm a Jayhawk...not a wildcat.
    I'm gonna go over to my dads shop and raid his hose/coupling stash today. He's out of town so he won't miss it

    Got some time this weekend to start running some pipe for dust collection. Everything is just dry fit for now until I get it all worked out. Need another 10 footer of pipe and a few more fittings and I'll be good to go. The last pic shows the start of the run that will go under my bench to the tablesaw.

    I have that one and it has been doing it's duty for about 10 years now. You will want to save up a little more cash and add this filter set up to it, the bags that come with that collector let the fine dust through (can't remember the microns).
