    110 is the common size for most drainage pipe lines and is a lot cheaper than 100mm the only issue and the reason that we are going to use 100mm is that we have not found a reasonable price for clear 100mm pipe. Clear is the preferred choice as it allows you to see the location of any blockage in the system should one occur.

    We are currently working on that issue.
    After researching and taking advice from different retailers, We hope that we have come up with a decent solution to this issue.

    First we have purchased a 3hp 16amp twin Chip & dust extractor that we will be routing to all machinery using 100mm clear pipe. Each unit will be fitted with their individual blast gate. We hope to restrict the need to reduce the pipe size to machines where possible.We will need to make attachments / hoods for certain machines e.g. Press Drill, Mitre Saw, Lathe and band saw. We also plan to include a sanding box. To deal with the fine dust we have also purchased two Record Power AC400 three stage air filters. These will be fitted high in the ceiling area and can be remote controlled. they can also be timed to stay on for 2 hours after we leave so that they can finish drawing all the dust from the shed.
    Now the issue of fine dust will never be eliminated completely that is why we should not overlook the need and use of quality dust masks at all times.

    As I stated this is our current project. We have all the equipment, and have started to plan pipe routes etc. I shall update on how efficient our system works once its fully opperational.
