Can I use 3" spiral galvinized pipe for a home wood shop? As I am a beginning wood worker, I have only a router station & table saw.
I'd like any advice on setting up my new home shop.:cowboy:

This may be as plain as the nose on my face, but what do you want to use it for?

3" pipe use

I'm building a vacuum dust collection system. Usually, as you must know, the standard dust collection pipe is 4" diameter. I scored the 3" pipe from the company I work for, plus 7 blast gates.:cowboy:

And I don't see why not. Applied physics would say that with a 4 inch "suction" line drawing air, a 3 inch line would increase velocity with only a slight difference in negative air pressure....make sense?
