Piping the dust collection system to table saw
I’m tired of tripping over the flex pipe from the DC , so I was going to go with the 4” flex piping I have now from my General DC to a 4” vertical section of ABS secured to the wall ,
then I read you should use two 45 degree pieces to make the 90 degree turn less aggressive at the top where it turns .
My question is , it would look prettier if I went right to the 10’ ceiling height with pipe before I dropped back down at the end of the table saw ,but I’m wondering if having such a high piece of tubing would give me less performance?
I could use hangers and have the 4” ABS at 6.5 feet instead , as I could still walk underneath it , but I think that would look strange ?
The DC is going to be located to the side of the table saw , but against the wall .
I was at WP, and I found out the outside coupler on a 4” piece of ABS fits the flex hose he sold me before ,as I was concerned about size issues .
Not sure how I’m going to build the piping where it comes out of my saw , and hoping I can use a 4” ABS 90 . I’m also going to need a splitter on the table saw pipe so that I can get suction on an overhead arm I bought from SawStop for on top of the blade.
Update : My DC is 1.5hp -1250 cfm
I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
