Subject:
Lathe Dust Collection question

Bob Moffett
>I am getting throughly frustrated with the complications and cost of putting in a central dust collection system and was wondering if I use a Jet 650 cfm dust collector (the one that fits on top of a trash can)with about 5 - 10 feet of 4" flexible duct dedicated to my lathe if that would be adequate for picking up most of the dust. I know it wouldn't pick up shavings and I know it's not as good as an Oneida system.
Thanks in advance,
Bob M.
