Default Metal dust collection system

I've read many articles on dust collection duct material....
Most show/recommend PVC, but I've never found anything recommending galvanized stove pipe....
I went ahead and piped mine using it, anyway....
The fittings fit standard 4 inch flex hose and blast gates with no modifications...
Since these pics were taken, I have swapped out the dust bag for a Winn NANO pleated filter.... This improved air flow dramatically.

Kurt, I wonder if it would have anything to do with way the pipes are made...the seam running end to end and all. Could be some potential leakage there.

You could likely improve the system even further if you duct tape the seams and the joints, that is assuming you haven't done so already. Just a thought.

How large of dust collector do you have? Motor and fan diam.? What is the diam. of duct 5",6"8"? is it single wall, or double wall?

this where foil tape comes into play...
metal is re-workable with little to no waste...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Looks great. I think I would use foil tape for the joints. Let us know how it works out. AND there is no reason to try to ground a system.

Good tip. I'd just bump it up to the foil tape. It doesn't break down over time like so called duct tape does.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.
