If you are looking for something for the whole shop, I like the ClearVue Cyclone.

Lots of info at Bill Pentz's site.

Depends on the size of the shop and what tools you have.
I, as many others do, own the 2hp HF system. I have it piped in my half of the garage and it does a good job all around. I have a trash can separator just before the fan.
If you have a large shop, then you may want to spend a bunch of dollars on an Onieda system. If you go that route, you can send a drawing of what you have and they will design and package it for you.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

What you need definitely will depend on the type of work you do, and the machines that you use. There are lots of good offerings out there.

For me, it was key to have an adequate machine, one that will work for all my needs.

I use a Laguna 3hp cyclone dust collector. Plenty of suction for up to two machines at a time which rarely happens. It has a remote on it which is nice too. Right now I have it portable, but in time hope to have a system piped into my shop, we'll see. LINK

That Pentz's site is without a doubt one of the best narratives on dust collection on the web!!!

Now, RICK.. *S*... dust collection for that new woodshop of yours ought to quite the challenge.

I was thinking about that and I will go up and over. Can anyone see any disadvantages to setting this thing out side my shop and buiding a wall around it. Space is a problem.
