Default Clearvue 5 hp cyclone

I bought a used 2 HP bag type collector. It did a good job of collecting the big stuff then shot the fine dust through the bag and into the entire house. Found fine dust everywhere. Did lots of research and went for the clearvue. Liked the idea of a small US company and it had great reviews. It is the most easily modified as well. I built my system out of thin walled PVC(aka white sewer line) and it works awesome. It has two wynn filters on the outlet. It is a big investment like a table saw but worth it for the long run.

Yeh, and you were probably a Hall monitor back in school!
No, lol, but I am a confessed wood hoarder. Everytime we clean out the scrap bin at work I end up with less room at home. It has gotten to the point I can't get to my tools to do anything. The struggle is real.

I chose the 2 HP HF because of cost and the number of upgrades that can improve an otherwise marginal machine. I installed the Winn Nano filter to replace the bag and am planning to move it outside when I install rigid ducting on the ceiling.

A few weeks ago I did.
Been dealing with a torn knee since before Christmas. Finally had surgery a week ago. Getting there but still hobbling.

I feel your pain, Lenny. It's a slow road back, but way faster if you religiously do the physical therapy exercises.
Guessing you'll be using hard shell kneepads from now on.

There is not much choice here in Oz....

Did not need a 'dust' collector as I work outdoors [no shop]...

Used mine for chip collection from the thickness planer and jointer...

Well, there are easier ways to stop going to work besides personal injury - I retired 4 years ago.

Hope your knee heels quickly so you can go back and scrounge that scrap bin.
