Here's a product recommendation from the MILE for a dust collector, including valuable configuration tips!

I have been involved in several past jobs in coming up with dust collection solutions. One of the best was buying a Mini Gorilla system by Oneida. https://www.oneida-air.com/inventoryD.asp?item_no=XXPM010100H

We hooked it up to our Fadal, ran the outlet through the mist configuration, ran an 8 inch flexible hose, with magnetic attachment to hook up to the side of the mill. It would turn on and off with the machine, and the vacuum would let the bigger heavy chips fall, but got every bit of dust, and small chips. Put a 55 gallon drum under it with wheels for easy removal. - Frank Wilgus
