Dust collector set-up questions
I have a Delta contractor's saw and just bought a Delta AP400 dust collector from a guy on CL yesterday. I set it up today and have some questions.
There is only one 4" hose that came with the system. Are people buying or building a manifold that they connect their collectors to that then feed into multiple longer and or differently-sized hoses to go to more than one piece of equipment?
Also, the collector came with two 30-micron filter bags. The seller mentioned using plastic bags on the bottom instead because they could easily be disposed of with the sawdust rather than emptying the cloth bags. Does that make sense? Also, are folks investing in finer (5-micron) bags to keep down the fine dust?
