Hiya

If you do a searxh on here there are about a bazillion threads covering the full spectrum of opinions on this.

My summary:
- Wider ducting is +++ better. For your setup, 100mm is a minimum.
- Bends, especially sharp ones, are your enemy - limit to max. 3 to any machine
- What you extract *to* is important. A 1um filter cartridge is part of the plan
- Many of these machines have not been designed with good dust collection in mind. So be ready to do so adaptation

My setup has similar tools. I have a 3 HP extractor (bought secondhand) through 100mm pipe. I built an upstream cyclone and have a twin 1um filters downstream. The P2.5 is generally <5 when I'm using any machine.

I also bought a cheap P1/2.5/10 meter, and a high quality mask setup (one of the visor ones). And I never use MDF.
