I use a modified Delta dust collector
which is moved from table saw to planer when needed.
Modifications include replacing the original cloth filter bag with
a HEPA filter and supports to handle added weight.
The dust collector has an add-on remote control
so that it can be turned on easily.
Burt has 2 Shopvacs in his garage.
Here is my very sophisticated dust collection system.
