It is rated at 6200CFM, has a bag shaker, a rotating flapper evacuating from the hopper to the collection shed, and services one molder and several other smaller machines.

    I have been reading all the confusing discussions on dust collection piping designs. I understand that having the larger 5 or 6" ports would be optimum but most of my tools are 4" and are not easily modified. My 18" drum sander being the main collection problem. I am purchasing a 3hp cyclone to...

    I am having so much trouble with my Delta AP400. Not collecting below 30 microns creates too much fine dust accumulations and I decided that it would be best to replace it. I am considering the Delta 50 -760 , Grizzly G1029, and the PSI DC200B. Wood Magazine rated these very highly. I was...
