    Anyone enlarge their inlet port to 6" on HF, 2HP dust collector?

    The 2HP HF DC system has a factory 5" inlet port on the housing with a rectangle outlet reduced down to a 5" hose. It would be easy to make a new inlet port with some MDF and a 6" flange as well as convert the outlet to 6" but would I gain anything? is there a ratio of inlet size to impeller...

    Can Two Dust Collectors be in the same line?

    Hey Everyone, After getting my shop put more together and running DC pipes across the ceiling and down to my BS I have lost a lot of CFM (I think that is what I lost, besides my marbles). I was thinking of upgrading to a larger HP, but don't have the money, now that I bought the Jet 16/42...

    I wonder what kind of motor I actually have on my HF 2hp dust collector???

    Ok, so the internet and the manual for the 2HP HF dust collector say that my motor is 20a but the machine label says that it is 14a, then I look at the cord and see that it is 16AWG which according to this link is good only for 10a: http://www.epanorama.net/documents/wiring/wire_resistance.html...

    Dust collection hose and where to find it cheap?

    Just jumped on a 2hp HF dust collector for $179 - 20% discount (how could I NOT buy it?) and I now need some 4" id hose to hook it to my tools. I assume that some of the more expensive hoses have a smoother inside and are made of a heavier plastic but is there a good on-line or local...

    Several weeks ago I came across a small 1 HP dust collector. Since I already had one, connected to a few of my tools, I dedicated this to my lathe. It came with a 30 gal cardboard dust bin. It had no separator so just dumped inside as well as passing through the bag, and cleaning up after 3...
