Small dust collector upgrade
I have a small garage used as a hobby workshop,
right now I have a 1 stage dust collector of 3/4 HP
with a 850 m3/h which in cfm I think is around 400 cfm.
It has a 4" connector and I want to use 4" pvc pipes,
not a long system, just a couple of curves to go to 3 machines.
Right now I used this dust collector directly plugged to the Tablesaw,
but unfortunately it gets clogged up from big shavings due to the grill protection in front of the impeller, I guess it was made more for just collecting fine dust.
I have a few questions, first, can I add a small cyclone to it with 2" connection similar to those used in conjunction with shop vacs? Or will the small amount of power be killed even more?
Second, is a dust collector with this power even worth considering to be used with the pvc pipe system?
