Just to finish the shop vacs subject, I would like to share with you my R2D2 (from star war) shop vac that I use mainly for the table saw.
The filtering element is again this gardening cloth that prevents weed from growing and the hoses are also 2” dia.
The plastic barrel is of 25 gallons and it’s used here for pickling cabbage (Poland, you know…).
PS. I just re-posted because the pictures got lost
