Interesting discussion...and thanks very much Tom for all the effort that you've put into this.

Still do not have my small shop area set up yet, but I did pick up a used DC which runs on 220V.

Some form of collection is going to be absolutely necessary, because the way it is now I'm using tools all over the house every time we build something. Missus is getting tired of cleaning up the mess I make all the time.

OK, fess up...which one of you clowns stole my sig? It was right here a second ago.

@cocobolo1 You might check on whether you plug your DC into an electric dryer plug? If you shop is in the garage, most likely you have such a circuit. I'd hire an electrician to make sure your wiring is the right type.

My shop started life as a shed, which I have quietly enhanced over about 12 years. It takes time to get set up the way you want.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Interesting...mine started as what was supposed to be called a garage. But from what I'm told, there never was a car in there. It had a gravel floor, a tilt up door on one end and a sliding barn door on the other.
Now I have a decent roof, insulation, pressure treated wood over concrete floor, wiring, lights and a 220V plug for my tig welder (50 amp). That's more than enough to run any of my 220V
tools. Still a long way to go before it is really usable.
I see that our local tool supplier has a Magnum 1 micron/5 micron ceiling mounted unit on sale this month. I will have to check that one out.

Take a minute and check out the WEN air filter unit on Amazon. I have one installed in my shop and it works very well. And, it's $133 (just went up $4). I like it. Trying to find out if there is any difference between it and the Jet. Same hp and filtration stats, but a third the price. https://www.amazon.com/WEN-3410-3-Sp...rds=WEN+filter

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Tom, many, many thanks for the Amazon link.
Today I went in to Kamloops to KMS tools to look at the air filtration system that they are selling. They didn't have any in stock, and further to that, apparently none of their other stores do either.
But the price for the Magnum is $480 Cdn plus taxes, which adds another $58 to the bill.
The fellow I spoke with said that a local body shop has 6 of these units installed and they wouldn't be without them.
In looking at the WEN filter, it appears to be identical to the Magnum, just different paint. Same 1/5 micron filters, same 3 speed operation, same remote control and probably from the same factory.
Even from Amazon Canada with our disgraceful rate of exchange, the WEN is less than half the cost of the Magnum.
Makes my choice very easy.

I really like the job it does. It is also pretty light so its easy to put up by yourself. I need to get one more for my garage, which will have a ceiling by February.
