I have no experience with the WEN DC so I can't really speak to that. However, I do have about 15 years experience with the HF 2HP DC. IMO, I think you would be much better off to save up a little longer until you have enough money to go that route. A lot more CFM's with the HF DC and also a lot more quieter.

If you are talking about the one that is a roll around then that will not work for me. I have a very small shop a 10'x 16' and a contractor saw R4512 plus a 13' planer, rikon 10' bandsaw and a 6' joiner that are roll around benches except the table saw which has its own wheels. I want something I can mount on the wall that is inexpensive.

I don't have any experience with that Wen, but the amp draw seems pretty low for something you would wall mount, if you expect for to add piping. It's probably okay for one tool a time, so you'd either need to move it or the tool.

I have the same size shop, and pretty much the same tools, but also a 5ft long lathe, a separate router table. My planer and miter saw reside under my lumber rack on little panels that fit on top of a shop cart. I use the HF with the super dust deputy, and a Wynn filter. I find that I had enough space in my shop to build a nine drawer dresser.

Then again, you have the same issue most of us hobbyists have. Budget and space constraints will teach us how to work with what we have.

Great setup. I have the same dust deputy and a one horse power delta dust collector mounted up on a shelf in my garage. I keep the barrel next to the ground. Very similar setup. It works great and the dusty depty keeps the vac filter clean.
