I have the same sized dust collector from Penn State and I've got my table saw
(high and low) hooked up to it, a RAS, a floor sweep plus another outlet to hook
up tools I use occasionally, such as the jointer or planer. My tubing is a
combination of 4" PVC and 4" corrugated hose along with various elbows, wyes,
and blast gates. Works really well.... BTW, get a remote control if you
I'd bought an air cleaner first and had I known then what I know now, I'd have
bought the DC and been done with it. As it is, I hardly ever turn on the air
in a nutshell
use 6" ducting
use sewer and drain for solid runs - works good and is cheap
use 6" flex hose for very short runs
i'm using the advice there, making my own blast gates, and so far, i'm

I have the 1HP Griz - the 8029. Just switched over to about 20' total of 4"
S&D PVC pipe. 20' run is with one 90* elbow. 4 "Wye's", 4 blast gates.
Small runs of 4" Flex hose to each machine. Only one gate open at a time.
I have read the grounding post before.And have consulted my wife the (PHD
in electrical engineering) also about the grounding and she say not to.
What I'm trying to pick is the material to use as ducting, pcv, havc or
special made spiral duct, ect. I have Six machines to hook up and a floor
sweep with 1 1/2 hp dc(with a chip collector).
And did your PhD wife comment on the pvc grounding technique in the
Whatever you plan to do for ducting, figure a chip seperator into your
plans. A barrel, some S&D fittings, and a chunk of plywood for a lid, and
cleaning the system gets so much easier.
I used 4" S&D, with my 1.5hp Delta, because I could get it from the local
hardware store. My hand tools make the biggest mess in the shop now.
Take a look at http://www.ShopTours.org Look specifically for Terry
Hatfield's shop. Look at the gorgeous job he did piping with 6" PVC.
For a while he was marketing a cyclone system based on Bill Pentz'
data. For an email addy (I'm sure he'll be happy to answer some
questions) go to http://www.woodcentral.com and look for one of his
posts. He usually has his email addy in them.

The problem with steel ducting is the cost of the fittings. They are a
friggen rip-off and one 'Y' connector can add up to the total cost of a
complete 4" PVC system. PVC works fine, is easy to use, strong, and is very

Hmmm. What if the die were a faulty manufacture? Remember, you referred
to a six-side die which could have seven "spots" on one of those six sides
due to a manufacturing error . . . or it could be intentionally made that
way. Perhaps your statement of a zero chance of a seven should be
restated to clarify that none of the six side have more than six "spots."
the possibility of "faulty manufacture" was eliminated in the specifications --
it was stated that the _specific_ die being used was:
(a) a regular hexahedron -- this means that it has precisely SIX faces,
no more, no less.
(b) had labels on the 6 faces that were from an 'enumerated list'. There
were precisely SIX elements in the enumerated list. There is no 'room'
for any other value.
(c) one that did *not* have 'spots' on it. The faces were labelled with
Arabic numbers. "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", and "6", according to the
It *is* possible to have *A* die where you _could_ roll a '7' -- I've seen
ones in the shape of a dodecahedron, and even an icosahedron. However, it
is *NOT*POSSIBLE* with the die specified in the example. The mathematical
probability of the event specified ('rolling a "7") with *that* die is
Sorry, but the specifications of the example were 'deliberately and
maliciously constructed' in a manner such as to eliminate such extraneous
