reduced at the machine w/ a saddle...
if the machine needed 2 pickups I went w/ 2 separate pickups instead of using Wye's...
keep in mind, every time you reduce, add a fitting or length you reduce air flow and efficiency...
you can put a saddle exactly where you need it and relocate them as required...
if you have the talent, you can make your own saddles... buy one and use it as a template...

commercial snaplok is a available in 10' lengths and spiral in 20' lengths...

Stick: Do you have any supplier suggestions? Seems like you've been down this path...

So I'm doing some shopping, trying to put together all the piece parts required for my project.

I'm looking at airhand.com for the 24 gauge stuff. All the pipes, connectors, saddles, etc I need would come to about $600. Ouch. Its all fun and games until you have to pay for it! I thought I would get away for about $400 tops.

So I went to Home Depot to see about the snap-lock pipe and fittings. It probably comes to about $250-300, except that I couldn't find a lot of the "y" fittings, etc.

ARGH!

Why can't it just be easy? :-)

1... don't go any lighter than 26GA...
30 and 28GA will be a mistake..
on your turns use the heaviest GA you can find...
thin GA will wear through...

2... skip the wye's...
make your own... aka saddles...

3... oh but it can..

I have a grizzly 1029 dust collector that I have hooked up to about 35’ of 4” pvc. I used 4” t- wyes for all my take offs then reduced to 2” at the machine. A 4” metal blast gate can be sliped inside 4” pipe using self tapping screws and caulking to seal the joint. Make sure you if you switch from metal pipe to pvc to run a ground wire around the pvc pipe. Thanks everyone for all the help you have given me over the years.
