A dust collector with a canister filter and an elaborate ducting system forms the nexus for all of Ed's major tools.

Too busy, much easier ways of connecting tools to dust collector. Very good that it works for him, thanks for the time and effort. I have found that one hose running to a rotating, ceiling-mounted turret, then one hose connected to tool in-use does the job with minimal clutter.
Looks like the flying spaghetti monster.
I like the way Ed avoided running hoses all over the shop. He clustered the tools and kept the hose runs short, at the same time giving him max access to the tools. A lot of good ideas put to work in this shop
Makes you want to switch to hand tools...
It sure takes up a lot of space it space is limited
That is the most complex dust collection manifold I have ever seen. This wins the prize for the most. (most connections, most tin smithing, most time needed to learn to work it). Wow.
