I used a 1 hp Woodteck dust collector for about 4 years. It was on
wheels, and I would move it from one machine to the next. It was
sufficient, but not good. I stepped up to a 3 hp Oneida cyclone in my
new shop (moved from 400 to 860 sq.ft.)
Any runs of over 15 feet, and the pull from a 1 hp motor will drop
considerably. If you get the 1hp motor, put the machine that needs the
most suction nearest the machine, and the one that needs the least
farthest away. Being an old concrete worker I tend to like things over
built. A bigger system will work better.
You do want a cyclone of some sort. The shavings from the planer and
jointer will clog up the impeller in no time. If you use it as a floor
sweep, any chunk of wood that goed through will bend metal impeller
blades, and break the plastic ones.There is the plastic lid on a
garbage can which works ok, but not great.
You should also get a remote starter. If you have gone without, and get
one, you will wonder how you survived without it.
