UPDATE 7/29: I have acquired a 1.5 HP Delta motor from building resources. Should work well for this project. I also picked up some scrap sheetmetal to build the impeller housing out of.
I am starting a new dust collector build. Although it may be cheaper and quicker in the long run to pick something up off CL, but what fun is that?
If anyone wants to help lets connect.
I’m using this website:
as a refernce.
Here is a list of parts I am attempting to gather:
Power switch (a standard household switch would work)
Ducting - I think 4" - 8" duct-work , preferred metal but I suppose PCV works
4" dust collector hose to attach to table saw, and other hoses (perhaps from old shop vacs) to plumb into other tools like the router table and drill press.
I will be bringing in a metal trash can to store the collected parts in. I will label it and stick it in the corner of the wood shop.
