Default Advice needed... serious

I have a Delta AP-300 portable dust collector. don't have the funds or skills to build a shed to put unit outside and run hose through hole to inside.

Cna I replace the bag with a better one so I can use my dc inside the shop ? If so, please give me the link to where I can buy one.Thank You
John

John,

I pretty much have taken the same route as Dario and I am very happy using my AP400 with a .5 micro bag inside the shop.

BTW, my DC have 2 bags (upper and lower).

I replaced the top one with the linked bag and the lower one with just heavy duty plastic (contractor grade) trash bags from Walmart. Makes the clean up so much easier.

Also, if you use the cloth lower bags...it won't take long for it to rot if you cut or turn green wood DAMHIKT [;)][:D]

I have a AP-300 it has a single bag... it allows fine dust to flood my shop.

Dario, the AP-300 bag is 38x21x38... would a bag 13.5x24 work ?

That Grizzly bag may be a bit better than the stock bag, but it still doesn't get down the the 0.5 or 1 micron size that will keep the respirable dust out of the air. When I bought a DC late last year, I looked for one that had a bag with no larger than 1 micron filtration. I run it inside my shop and don't have a problem any longer with dust. Mine's a two-bag system...cloth/felt on top and plastic on the bottom.

Check out a custom bag from American Fabric Filter. They are not too pricey (I think I paid for mine some years back somewhere in the range of $75-90 and include were also some real heavy duty plastic bags as a replacement for the lower bag). Mine was an oversized bag, that was made to fit in my low ceiling shop.

The 0.5 and 1 micron are great but how do you "unplug" them. I find the dust collects in a hurry on the inside and I lose suction. I have used a stick to beat it up every so often but it doesn't seem to do the trick as well as taking it off, taking it outside, turning it inside out and then sweeping it. Although this works well it's a pain and kind of chilly this time of year to be playing in the snow with the bag and a broom.

Sorry don't mean to hijack.
