I'm not at all familiar with vacuums or anything, so why is the inlet size a big deal? Right now, I've got the vac attached to a dust separator that's fixed to a bucket, so very little actually goes to my shop vac. Would a larger inlet create more suction overall?
I've given the HF a lot of consideration. Problem is it kind of eliminates the need for half of what I already bought. In all honestly, looking at the issues I've run into, I wish I'd purchased the HF unit instead of the materials to rig up my shop vac. I was just intimidated by the prospect of having to handmake a separator for it.
