Thanks for measuring this, Tom. 5'8" is a couple inches too tall for the closet I want to put this in, but it looks like I could shorten the supports for the green ring that holds the plastic bag, at the price of bit of dust capacity.

@furboo I just realized that I measured total height of the unit on castors, to the tip of the bag support, which I kept on mine.

The height without castors, to the top of the Wynn filter itself is 63 inches. There is no air outlet on top of the filter and you won't need to remove it to clean it, just blow air in from the outside. So that should fit. Sorry for my error, but happy for your situation. The 25% coupon is only good on the first and second of January. Don't wait too long to get yours

@DesertRatTom

Tom: How does the system performance compare with the Wynn filter relative to its performance with the 5 micron bag?

Broom and dust pan- the original, primitive dust collection system. Would love to have a DC but I don't have the extra space.

I like DIY, but I to agree the HF unit is priced right. Now if anybody is close to Tallahassee, I get fans/motors for free from a friend of mine that is an AC guy. My wife is his office manager. He had one last week that was about 16X8 with the motor. The problem I have in that I only have 110 in my carport and all the AC units are 220v. And my breaker box is full. So I'm waiting on a furnace job since all those run on 110v. Anybody close to T-Town can have one of these for free if they want to come get it. Just let me know.

Another thought is he gets all his filters direct from the company that makes them...I'll ask him what he can get me those filters for tonight. I bet he can drop ship them to anybody. I bet he can get us a deal. He gets me the 20"X25"x5" whole home filters for $20. Would be nice!

@JFPNCM There is a little more umph with the bag, but that is subjective. I think air flow depends on how often you blow the filter clean. I am very happy with the Wynn filter in my shop. Clean air to breathe for the first time, particularly after installing the WEN filter as well. I kept the bag for the unit in the garage because I can easily roll it outside when in operation.

Stick mentioned that even if you use a more coarse Wynn filter, it will soon block much finer particles. The same holds true of the 5 micron filter BAG. However, the far greater surface area of the folded Wynn Filters will allow air flow far longer than the much smaller surface area of the bag (5 micron) filter. I think Stick was right on about that.

The best thing about t he Wynn filter is that you can simply blow compressed air through the outside to clean it out. The bag isn't quite so simple to clean out, and if you pull it off, you'd better be wearing a good mask.

If I could afford it, I'd put the Wynn filter on both units, in fact, closed a client today so I might just do that in the garage unit. I think dust collection is as important a purchase as getting a good table saw.

I wonder if it would be beneficial to use that 1" roll filter an the inside of those filters. It might cut down on the dust reaching the filter & you could shake it out intermittently.

Thanks Tom. I need to look into fitting a Wynn to my old Delta DC system.

I am a big fan of the Harbor Freight 2hp dust collection unit. I have two I got on sale. Well, they're on sale again, $230. And, there is a 25% discount coupon as well, good Sunday and Monday, Jan. 1 and 2. That's -$57.50 for a total of $172.50.
They are listed $199.00 currently.

Remember, guys, the more stuff you add to the outflow side the more back-pressure you create. Not helping with the CFM inflow.
That 5 micron bag that was mentioned would be a long way from the essential 1 micron required for clean, safe, breathable air.
The downside of course is that the 1 micron creates a lot more resistance. Maybe that's why the mfg. includes a 5 micron bag? To help with the CFM rating???
