    Portable DC or new vacuum?

    EDIT - I ended up going with a vacuum for now. Thanks for all the help in responses. Yeah, I know there are lots of old threads and I have read many of them, but newer products and current or upcoming deals will weigh into this... I don't do a lot of powered flat work; my tablesaw and power...

    Well, I ai'nt dead yet. That's a quote, if you question the spellilng. Been spending time with the guys that cut metal and decided that using an angle grinder to cut metal with, what with all the sparks and all, was too much of a PITA, so got myself a nifty HF portable bandsaw, and made a quicky...

    Dust Collector: Cyclone vs. Portable?

    Hello, If you had a choice, price not an issue. Would you choose between a 1.5 HP cyclone (grizzley G0443) Dc or a 1.5 HP portable DC (Delt 50-850 with pleated filter). Why? Is there really a huge diffeence in suction? Based on the published numbers it doesn't seem so. Thanks, Mark
