actually its a dual system.
2.5" pvc along the wall with 1.5 hp delta dust collector
and on the other end i have my rigid shop vac with vortex
collector inline.
i can run both at same time or just one with a gate.
same with air filter above....i run it after for 15 minutes
with gate open all the way....i use 1 micron furnace filters
for that...about 8 bucks each.
some of the tools just have a pvc cap to close off vacuum
so i just run one tool vac at a time....works pretty good.

Nice, but all those tools (I see lots of saws/drills) are definitely gonna scare some scopes! :)

Are you keeping aluminum and steel dust separated in your dust collecting system?
