I have been in the process of installing a 5Hp Clear Vue dust collector. I should have done this years ago. Here are a few pictures.
I had to raise the roof a little for motor clearance. I wanted the intake as close to the ceiling as possible.
I wanted some isolation between the piping and the machines. Rubber sleeves and clamps at the plumping store was like $13. So, I am going to try using an inner tube. It fits very tight and I can make 7 sleeves per $8 tube.
I am about to start my building my first blast gate tomorrow. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
