No matter which way you go to make it 2 stage ( Dust Separator) you'll spend more than you have in the used 1hp DC. If you have most all of the tools you need then go 2 stage if not get that needed tool but still have DC on your list.

I read a couple of reviews on the AP400, be careful it's top heavy. It seems to be good for one tool at a time. Reviews have said they needed a longer hose. I assume the previous owner has lengthen the hose.

To answer your question no don't use the Dust Right Separator. It reduces down to 2 1/2", keep it 4". Rockler sells the fittings to make your own 4" separator you would need to supply the barrel/trash can. Fittings Link... Look at the picture of the guys set up and see if that is something that would work in a corner of the garage. He is using the Dust Right expandable flex hose and imagine has their fitting at each tool. Rockler is proud of their Dust Right products but you don't have to worry about fittings that should fit not fitting. By the time you add up the cost of all of the fittings, clamps, hose and barrel, 2 Benjamins will magically disappear from your wallet. I basically have that set up but took it a step further and put it all outside and ran the flex hose through the wall.
