I have a heavy duty shop vac and use 2" PVC pipe to run on the walls to various saws and routers. Would it be to my advantage to increase the size of the pipe to 4" and still use my shop vac connection at the collection bin? I presently have a dust collection lid that I purchased from Lee Valley and it fits on a regular garbage can.
You are better off staying with your 2" pipe unless you are changing over to a much larger capacity dust collector. Your shop vac does not have enough flow to draw through the 4" pipe and you will end up clogged and cussing.
