I bet they sell a few of those, that is cheaper than a good Vac, a guy could have one for every machine, and a couple of extras for future machines he hasn't bought yet.I got an email from HF yesterday to advertise their latest sale. There's a coupon in it for the 2HP dust collector at $169.99 Had I not just given them a bit over $500 for a generator I'd be there buying a new DC. The coupon is good until 1-28-18.
That is undoubtedly true, Chuck. :smile: Hermetically sealed, it aint.Gene if you don't have negative pressure in your shop it's because you have enough air leaking in to replace what the DC is pushing out.
If the pilot goes out, doesn't the bimetal controlled valve shut off the gas? I have to manually hold the gas on when lighting the pilot until the valve gets hot enough to stay open by itself. I think that is a standard safety feature.That is undoubtedly true, Chuck. Hermetically sealed, it aint.
A caution, though. I don't have a furnace or hot water heater sharing my shop. Although, there is a flameless heater. I've been told that my system could cause cause a pilot light to go out if the shop were tight enough to cause negative pressure. That could be dangerous. My heater's pilot isn't affected.

I agree with Chuck, they are designed for housekeeping. not lung saving.Harbor Freight doesn't manufacture anything. They resale tools mostly or totally from China or Taiwan. "Standard" dust collectors really don't do much to collect dust. They mostly just collect the coarser debris.
I agree, Stick, if I have a business with employees, payroll taxes, contracts, deadlines, overhead, etc. In that case then buy it ready to run, sized to suit your current and future needs and budget, and go make your product now rather than later.I belong to the ready to go crowd...
why buy something that you have to spend more time/energy/money on to get it to do something..
back to the tangible/intangible cost thing...
