I bought on on Friday night last week for the internet price of
$149.99 at the local store. It is quite heavy, ended up sliding it
onto my mechanics creeper to move it around in the box.
Yesterday I ordered the Wynn cartridge conversion after reading Bill
Pentz's site, I figured I would spend $40 getting new bags at least,
and the filter kit with plastic catch bags and the cartridge was about
$103.00. Being in the diesal truck industry, I appreciate how well
those big canisters work.
Wynn indicated I could just blow it out with compressed air from the
outside in, so I expect the cartridge to last me a LONG time.
I've got conflicting information on the size of the HF dust inlets.
Wynn says if I take the Y off I get a single 5" line. I see JET has a
6" and 4" adapter available for their 2hp unit, and I suspect I could
attach that to the harbor freight impeller section.
Also considering moving the motor off the bottom of the cart onto a
small chest of drawers and giving the motor to bags hose a straight
shot. Perhaps reducing it from square to round right at the bags
instead of right out of the impellar housing.
Hope to get rid of ALL the dust in my garage shop. Trying to figure
out how to move the jointer to be closer to the orientation of the
hoses. don't want to have to step over them!
