Hi from southwest Missouri

I am new to this forum as of today. I live a bit north of Springfield, MO. Moved here two years ago and have been busy working and trying to get my first dedicated shop up and running. It is still a work in progress. The shop is 28 x 44 with 28 x 10 of it set aside for storage. I do have one question that maybe someone has found an answer to. I just bought myself a dust collector, 2hp, 1550cfm. What I am trying to solve is the duct work for the shop. To stay with in the SP rating I want mostly rigid ducting, 6" main and 4" branches. Cost is a definite factor, but I don't want a static issue either. Are there any suggestions/solutions out there? Main would be 24', and branches vary, probably 70 feet total in 4 or 5 branches.

Thanks,
Rick

I don't like you! Your storage is almost twice the size
of my shop!

Well anyway, welcome to the mad house!
I am the only sane person here!

Welcome Rick,
Don't believe BH, we all know he's not sane. I don't know off the top of my head who sells the ductwork, but I would recommend the smooth metal. Google it and I'm sure it will come up. Less restriction than plastic corogated hose. I would be concerned about static electricity also. They also sell sweeping elbows that don't cause a restriction.

Welcome to the forum rhds1 Out of 3500 or so members here someone will have what you are asking for. Buy the way, I road my Goldwing up there to the Bass Pro Shop once. Nice place but way to many hills. I spent a week in branson on Table Rock Lake as well. Not ever going back there.

Welcome, Rick... From just down the road in Nixa. You'll probably get a chime in from Big Dave as well who hails from over around Seymour... 28 x 44... Nice... I'm jealous as well.

I cut that board three times and it's STILL too short!!!...

Thanks to everyone for the welcome. I have spent many hours this weekend reading some of the posts and will have to say there's a lot of helpful ideas and members out there. Looking forward to keeping up with many of the threads of interest. Glad to hear that there are some locals around here too!
