Cool! What lead you to decide upon that particular extraction unit?

A combination of 1) trying to get a solution that would fit in my low-ceilinged shop space and 2) keep noise levels acceptable. Ultimately, if I had a higher ceiling I could have shoved a cyclone in an enclosure and been done with it. However, cyclones turned out to be problematic to fit without serious compromises (e.g. very short collection bin, etc.). I investigated building an external, attached enclosure for a cyclone, but to get it placed reasonably would have been very expensive (some excavation plus a concrete pad). It turned out to be cheaper to go with the RL than go the external route. From there, it was mostly a matter of duct planning and messing with spreadsheets to size the unit.
