Chris - dust forum link you gave once

Chris - do you still have the link you gave a while back for a dust collection forum? I remember you saying the people on that page were very knowledgeable about this. I was just visiting Rockler's page for their Jet systems - I'm split between the $300 DC-1100 dust collector and the $200 ceiling-mount AFS-1000 air filtration system...says it can filter a 20x20x8 room in 5 minutes, down to 5 micron particles. Neither has a cyclone type unit.

Dust collection and air filtration are not the same thing. The goal of dust collection is to keep it out of the air in the first place. Air filtration is cleaning the air after all the dust generation is over. Dust collectors do filter the air as they keep the dust out of the air to start with, but air filtration units do not collect dust.

The matter of dust collection is not the chips that fall to the floor, but the airborne dust.

As you read and learn more about dust and its collection, you will find that filtering to 5 microns is a long way from the goal.

Most of the time the objective is filtration below one micron.

This is a deep subject. I encourage you to read as much as you can about it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the insight - I will study it more. Much more.
