I'm exploring options for a dust collection system. I have a 20x20 shop and looking for a system that would be adequate with one tool at a time in use with 30' of ducting. I wandered in to my local Woodcraft today and noticed a Laguna 2HP mobile cyclone system. the specs say 1600 cfm at 14.8" static pressure http://www.lagunatools.com/accessories/dustcollectors/dustcollector-cyclone2_2#
I asked if it would work as a stationary system and support a shop my side. They said it would. What I really like about it is that it is only 70" tall, so I could put it under the shed roof behind my shop. Would cut down on noise and also less issues with finer dust coming out the filter -as it is not physically in my shop.
A quick measurement suggests my longest run would be to my tablesaw and would be (from the dust collector) 2 ft horiz, then 4 ft up then 15 ft horizontal, then 9 ft down, then 5 ft horizontal. Does anybody know if this machine would handle it? Or can you point me towards a calculation tool of some sort?
