    Rikon portable dust collector?

    I am in the process of cleaning up the shop before finishing a dozen stair treads. My shop is rather limited for space. I did a search on Woodcraft's website and found the Rikon portable DC.

    Dust collection question

    I'm building a new shop - actually, the building is up, waiting for final electrical and a little bit of interior finish work before starting to setup shop. The shop is relatively small - 26 x 22. Because it's sitting on a side hill, there's a decently deep crawlspace available with about 5 feet...
