Wasn't sure how to mount it, but just realized it can be attached to my shop wall next to the table saw. It will lift out of the way and I can keep my riving knife in place. Ah, sawdust, the inspiration for lots of projects.

Those have been my concerns about the system as well. Look forward to your solutions.

you can upgrade to 6'' units w/canister and separator included for all that not much more money than a HF reworked unit...

Craigslist is a great place to start when looking for alternatves.. I found my Grizzly G0440 there for a great bargain... I agree fully that the HF unit is a poor choice - the money you will spend on upgrades to make it perform adequately would be better spent on a true two stage unit.

Tried it and the site asked me to create a yahoo account. I have no interest in that road so if there is an alternative ounce to the info I would appreciate the reference.

Small point. At 110 v AC, I think the max hp you can generate is about 1.5 to 1.75, so the HF unit is pushing it a little to claim 2hp. Just don't seem to get around to installing the overarm DC accessory.

This is a really good string.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I personally think many of the claims that HF makes about its 110v dust collector are “pushing it”: Namely, hp and CFPM. (Many companies do the same — HF is not alone.) I’m not sure how they measure it, but the advertised 1550 CFPM has no reliable comparison to reality in this universe. My griz at the advertised 1354 CFPM is in a completely different class when compared to the HF unit (and I have had them side by side to compare).

Honest numbers in a real-life, non-laboratory setting would allow a would-be purchaser to make an educated decision. Even with the mods of a dust deputy, etc, the numbers don’t add up. Budget is a huge consideration, and that cannot be ignored, but when you add the cost of mods in, the Hf bang for the buck is a diluted number which can lead someone down the “sunk cost” road.
