I think I'd consider coming down in a corner and running a hard line just under the rack on the wall.  If that's possible?

I will take a look at that ... it is tight over there on that back wall with the circuit panel and several outlets to get between ... Going under the lumber rack wouldnt be too bad .. but I would need to put in 3 90's to get to the DC .. would that not kill the suction?

You would certainly have to get creative.  Use 2 45s to create more of a sweeping corner.  Might be a complete wash between hard piping and using the flex..  Flex also reduces the suction.

Got some free time so figured I should work on finishing the DC for now …

trying to figure out if I should hard pipe more toward the middle or if that’s decent? Testing it out it’s enough hose.. however it gets a little squirrelly when I get to the middle and under stretch bands on the middle. Maybe need to tighten the stretch bands a little to give it more clearance maybe. Still tinkering with that but curious if y’all have any thoughts?

 Looking great!

CNCs are tough because you have to account for so much movement.  I think Frank Howarth did a tour of his machine and DC..  You might have a look at his channel and see what he did.

For now got everything but the CnC run done. Still pondering that one… 

got the bandsaw done and had to switch how the lines were run from the bandsaw to go out the back now.

shortened the jointer hose so it didn’t have 5-6’ of extra hose just sitting there

Shouldn’t some of the slack be removed from the flex hose?

it is a little loose because the motor is not all the way front left, when it is in the front it is decently tight. It gets real loose when its over on the right side of the table ... I just dont have enough room above the CnC to make it work better

Gotcha, I know there has to be some give cause it needs to move to different parts of the table.

If it works well like it is, fine and dandy. If not, I think, from recent experience, that it would be more efficient if hard pipe was run up to the last bungee cord. Or at least take the slack out of the hose to that point.

Couldn't you run your hard pipe to about center of the cnc table then come down with an elbow and a swivel?  The CnC tables that I have seen in person all use this method. Quick search and found this for you to check out.

completely agree ... my issue though is by the time I turn the hard pipe down and get everything ready, when the motor runs under it the hose gets all jammed up. There is only about 3' or so to the downturn which isnt enough to let the hose move freely and not push on it in weird ways. I need 12' ceiling haha!

this would be interesting to test, however I would need a 6" and the only 6" is $350 ... lol

You're getting into Nordfab pricing there 🤣🤣

no kidding!! that piece cost almost more than all my other DC all together haha 

Just now, Jamie said:

Yeah that is a big jump in price! You could always store that cnc in my shop, 11ft ceiling should be plenty of head room. 

LOL! ... this is so generous, but I feel I would be taken advantage of you and wouldnt want to impose 🙂

Does the cnc recommend having a 6"?  I would think you would be able to get away with running a hard 6 to the machine then reduce to a 4"

technically no .. I was just going with less reduction in suction going down to a 4" line .. also bought all the 6" DC (the red stuff) for the CnC so I would need to replace that as well with a 4" option ...

So first off that dewalt fan has been amazing!! 
 

2nd a real pisser offer when you walk in the garage and see this … completely ripped the top off haha. I had already started taking the bottom part apart before I remembered to take a pic.

picked up a new 4” collection system that looks super snazzy! Hopefully it works as good as it looks! Updated with a 4” hose as well …

all the brown on the grass/sidewalk and up against the wall is fine MDF dust. Guess everything with the dust collection is working like it should haha 

Finally happy things are going well with the DC
