I saw one recently that a fellow was so proud of where he piped the whole shop with 3" plastic and lots of 90°bends like he was plumbing for water. When he started the DC system, he had very little air flow.

Okay, for someone who has only had to deal with DC on a small, basically bench top situation in the past, what exactly is wrong with these images please? What makes them bad an inefficient? This is something I'm going to need to be looking at going forward (If my plans work out at least) so any tips, comments or even better, pictures of a good setup would be most appreciated.

In the first pic, the 3 way "T" is connected wrong, so incoming airflow has to make a 150° turn to enter.
The opening at the bottom left should be the inlet to the cyclone.

I’m going to be putting together a write-up of my design and decision making process on my shop and dust collector implementation. I promise that I will detail how I went from a somewhat cumbersome shop layout and expensive overhead duct design to a much simpler, more efficient and inexpensive design — just be patient with me and all will become clear.. :-)
