Thumbs up Dust Collection bargain returns

Dust collection is one of the first things to put into a shop. Just found the Harbor Freight ad and once again they're selling the 2hp DC for $199. Didn't notice a super coupon that applies to it, but this price is good and will help you save your lungs. There is a long string about upping the suction on this if you want more. So far pretty much everyone is happy with these, I have two and really like them.
Sale is on now.

At that price everyone should have a dust collector.

I spent more than this jiggering together parts to try to make my own. Never was able to get really good collection that way, but I have a huge collection of unused 4 inch connectors.

Up here, one that looks identical to the green one is on sale for $399 Canadian. So that sounds like a great deal Tom. With the exchange rate, $199 US would be around $250 Can.

My son gave me a 80 dollar gift certificate for harbor Freight. I thought that was a very nice thing to do, but what would I buy from Harbor freight.
Lets see 50 bucks off with the coupon and then my 80 dollars gift card, that's... lets see, now where is that calculator?

Thanks for keeping us up on these sales, Tom. I think a lot of members have been able to have an effective dust system in their shops at an affordable price because of you.

It seems I never finish what I

I couldn't find the coupon, but that makes it even sweeter! Put off the tool and get the DC. In my small shop, I added the Wynn folded filter (canister type). It costs about as much as the DC on sale, but I don't have any sawdust flying around any longer. Uline has 30-50 gallon fiber drums with metal tops, or use a trash barrel. Rockler has the connectors needed to turn the drum into a chip collector, and the 4 inch fles hose to hook it all together.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
