Anyone have thoughts on the Penn State DC2000B Vs the Grizzly G1029Z?
Very similar in specs but since I don't know how they take the CMF or Static
measurements, I may not be comparing apples to apples. All I know is that my
Penn State DC1 is underpowered for my current wood machines.
I built a Bill Pentz cyclone using the Clark Echols kit before Clark proved
himself to be a scoundrel (the kit was fine, his dealings with Bill were
not) with a 5 HP Leeson motor--cost me about the same as a high end Jet and,
well, it sucks (in a dust collector that's a good thing). I can hook a
2-1/2 inch hose to a piece of machinery that has a port for such, run the
end into the 6" pipe coming ouf the cyclone (no adapter, just shove a couple
of feet of hose into the pipe loose) and it still pulls more dust out than
the shop vac does.
The vendor Bill is working with now is making what appear to be much nicer
Before you buy _any_ dust collector, read Bill's site <
http://billpentz.com/woodworking/cyclone/Index.cfm . Very good
information. Bill's serious about dust collection.
