A modest, portable dust collector can do a good job provided you fit it with an effective filter and don't treat it like a true central dust-collection system with long runs of ductwork.To be effective, a portable dust collector must move air fast enough to transport big chips, shavings, and dust; move enough air to capture all the waste that woodworking machinery generates; and trap even the finest dust particles.
But without a first-class filter, a dust collector becomes a dust-recirculating pump, spewing contaminated air throughout the shop.The 10 collectors tested are about the most powerful type available that run on normal 120v household current.
They have a 1.5-hp motor driving an impeller to s*ck dust into the filter and the collection bags.They're designed to handle the waste from a typical shop machine but not from two machines at once.As a practical matter, a dust collector needs to provide 800 cfm or more to move all the dust, chips, and shavings that machines like tablesaws, jointers, and planers produce.
The Delta 50-850 performed well.It comes with a 5-micron filter bag; a 1-micron bag is a $90 option...
