I have spent hours reading about Fesstool dust extractors, Onedia’s Dust Deputy and Dust Collectors.
To say I am overwhelmed and confused at this point is an understatement.
I am looking for the best solution for my Shapeoko Pro XXL. I currently own a rigid shop vac which is way too loud. I need something relatively quiet that can run for hours and captures large and fine particles as I have asthma so I do not need to aggravate it.
I have read the fesstool has a HEPA filter but that it only filters to 1 micron? My understanding is there can be many particles finer than this that will pass right through that filter and blow out into the surrounding area. Not sure if that is correct ?
If so would a fesstool hooked to an Oneida Dust Deputy do the trick or would I need to get a dust collector + the Fesstool (still not sure what model to get if I go this route) or Fesstool + Dust Deputy would do the job ?
I am also trying not to break the bank, I know this sounds counterintuitive which mentioning fesstool, I am also open to other options. I just want something that is quiet and works best for my Shapeoko since it will be being run in my basement.
Again I am completely confused it almost seems like you need fesstool + dusty deputy + dust collector…
Any help would be appreciated this is all new to me.
