  1. Many times I have read that small shops only require smaller dust collectors. The facts are that you need 800 - 1000 cfm (OSHA vs the more restrictive Euro standards) at a table saw to collect the dust generated. Physics is not suspended in a small shop. Most small shop machines are rated with no ducting or filters attached. I really don't care what people choose to use, but misinformation bugs me
  2. I have chisels from several sources. The ones the feel the best in my hand are from Blue Spruce https://bluesprucetoolworks.com/collections
  3. thrax you might find this site usefull http://billpentz.com/woodworking/cyclone/index.cfm#index.cfm I was going down a path for dust collection that included a 2 hp system. Changed course after reading this site. It is somewhat painful reading but filled with good data by an engineer who had a passion for woodworking but developed allergies to wood dust
  4. I have overfilled my Clearvue. Life did not end, but did get a little busy as I exercised my full vocabulary
  5. I have the 5 hp ClearVue. Felder met my criteria. I have read that the Felder 160 might be a tad undersized (max ~ 800cfm)
  6. I am fortunate to have a 2 car attached garage and a detached three car garage. The three car garage only sees a car enter for oil changes and other minor maintenance, The lift is in there. Mini split and dehumidifier x 2 accomplishes the environmental control
  7. http://wynnenv.com/dev/wp-content/uploads/cyclone-filter-comp-chart_2017.pdf Clear Vue vs Oneida filters. More surface area = longer period of effective filtering I did not want free standing. And yes it is loud, but I am already wearing ear protection, so not a big deal
  8. My shop is both temperature and humidity controlled, therefore cannot vent outside. I looked for a unit with the best airflow and filters. Felder and Clear Vue met my criteria. YMMV If you are not aware of this site, it is wordy but very useful http://billpentz.com/woodworking/cyclone/index.cfm#index.cfm
  9. Of the ones you mentioned, I would pick the Felder. Personally, I chose Clear Vue
  10. I find it interesting the number of people who have owned Powermatics and now have a SS. I have not read or know of many/any SS owners who have gone the other way. Euro sliders are a whole different game
  11. 5 inch PVC exists, but is darn hard to find, and ridiculously expensive compared to even 6 inch. As has been said, find another way
  12. Agree. That is the best site I have seen in some time.
  13. I do not know what part of the country you are in, but when I hear of someone remodeling/working in an older home, I think of histoplasmosis - a fungal infection. Can be very indolent. Have seen it a few times. Fatigue can be part of the symptom picture - though you description does sound more allergic in nature
  14. this blade is a tad more than the Oshlun, but is a good blade https://www.forrestblades.com/ply-veneer-saw-blade-for-cutting-plywood-and-plywood-veneers/210mm-8.25-ply-veneer-saw-blade-for-festool-ts-75-eq-cross-cuts-on-wood-veneers-70-teeth/
  15. I have had good experiences with both the folks at Equipment Sales and Service and with my SawStop. Life is good
