Would solve the dust collection at the band saw tho...and my neighbors as well.  Grin

Well, being computer impaired, it took me a while to find the specs on it. 5 hp motor..... Still, getting good flow through 100 feet of 4 inch pleated type hose in a straight run is pretty good. Getting good flow with the hose making a continuous S shape is even better.... Oneida does make excellent quality dust collection systems..... Now, I am wondering if I could just retro fit it into my current Oneida set up....

I can only guess but it seems like one of it's main features is being able to run various sizes of ducting from 1"-5", It should be the perfect candidate for retrofitting.

I never did find the specs and I am not computer challenged. Or at least I did not think I was.

It looks like a nice compact setup. How many CFM's does it have?

Looks like you have to pay attention to your ducting, it needs to be capable of higher pressures.

Hmm, seems that my 3 hp Oneida has 10 inch ducts coming directly off of the cyclone. Can't remember, but CFM is in the 1800 range. I know that static pressure is the most important spec, but no clue as to what it is on my set up. May have to call up Oneida to find out more. I would think that with a 5 hp motor, you would want more CFM than what they list, and bigger duct work. Maybe they made a much different impellor blade set up.

There is a lot more going on than just duct size and HP, etc.
A lot of calculations need to be crunched to 'size" a system.
I think this one is a GP (general purpose) system that will work for "most" small systems.
A 5HP motor should be able to move a lot more than 400-500 cfm.
Again, there are things to consider like motor speed, blade design ducting and on and on.
