    My dust collection system

    I had made a little cart with the vacuum and seperator but it was too bulky to move around the shop. So I stacked it. Saves me valuable shop space and increases the likelihood that I will move it from station to station. My

    Looks like a nice solution. I had moved my DC around from tool to too for the last year and just recently put in some pvc pipes to centralize it. Really has made a difference in my shop. I still move hoses around and have to open/close gates, but much easier than moving the whole DC unit. All my PVC is screwed together, so can reconfigure it as needed. Might give it some consideration if you find you're just not taking the time to use the vac like I was.

    I probably will eventually get the pipes hookeed up and get a more robust DC system. This was a fun break from the boxes ive been making lately because i didnt have to squint over a ruler or make sure everything was perfectly square.
