I should have clarified earlier, the Shopsmith DC is a separate mobile unit with 3 ports, two currently capped. So only 1 - 2-1/2" port is being used at any time. It's basically a large shop vac with a large plastic bag to collect the sawdust. Here's a picture of it with the finer mesh bag. And I need to admit to a senior moment. If air can't escape (dirty filter) the no air gets in resulting in less suction. Filter bag is dirty. Time for a tear down and good cleaning.

Stick: Sorry I am just getting back to you. I have not been online in a couple of days. I have the Jet DC500.

To all that have welcomed me... THANK YOU. I so much appreciate it, and thank you for including me in your discussion, and suggestions.

So much of my "woodworking" is actually home maintenance/repair because my house is 88 years old, and the list never ends. I do not get a lot of "fun shop" time. Mostly cutting boards, and mallets(I like making
those). Again thank you all.

Tim.

David: When the filter gets dirty, do you dispose of it , and install a new one? Can not imagine trying to clean it/blow it out. Does it get dirty fairly quick?

1... no... clean it..
2... put hold on the compressed air... forget it even...
2... bag type..
turn it inside out...
shake the snot out of it, outdoors, w/ the wind to your back...
don't forget to close your eyes and hold your breath..
a shop vac or compressed air rearranges the weave of the bag so that latter you are wondering how the hole(s) got in the bag...

canister type...
it should have the cleaning paddles in it..
just spin them often...
I have the 1300 and it has them...
no paddles???
take the canister outside and gently thump the heavies loose...
now you get to use your shop vac...vacuum from the inside of the canister...
wear a good dust mask...
3... yup..

NOTES:
capture the swarf...
it comes in handy for so many things...

@sreilly ...
I see you have floor wand...
suggest you discontinue using that...
if you were to pick up metal (hidden in the floor sweepings) as in in fasteners or hardware and when the metal hits the impeller you can generate sparks that could start a sawdust fire...
the fire could smoulder for hours and hours before it comes to life...
VOE says a sawdust fire is a tough fire to put out..
there may also be the chance that the airborne ultra fine swarf could flash or detonate...
you also risk damaging your unit...

Stick,

This unit has become more of a floor sweeper as I have a central system I installed for almost all of the shop. A ClearView 1800 6" pvc piped system with a 5 HP motor and 16" impeller. I also installed a full can sensor to stop the system when the 30 gallon galvanized trash can gets full. I've even been impressed with the old 1980's Craftsman shop wet/dry vac that I've started using again for things like the Kreg Foreman and the Leigh Mortise and Tenon jig. In fact I just bought a new spare filter the other day for quick change. Loud but effective on the small port tools. I used it for the first time with the Festool track saw and had just a smidgen of sawdust to clean up afterwards. But the main workhorse is the CV1800 and it does a great job. Was a bear to install by myself but worth the money and effort.
