I use a woodmaster planer to rip lumber
Try moving rip saw blades to center of the accessiors shaft and try that
One of the tricks we use in our shop to get a lot more volume is to take off the y pants splitter @ the smaller collectors on place a 6" collar on it. We run 6" to the machine and put another collar on the machine and get the volume up. We have also done this on our edgebander and slider.
Make sure you don't have a lot of 4" hose in between the collector and the planer. it in itself is very inefficient
Cabinetmaker I have the 4" center pipe
Nice shop !
The amount of hose you have in your main line is killing your ability to keep a good volume going. If you will hard pipe as much as you can to the machines and use 90 sweeps instead of 90 degree elbows it will decrease the resistance you are experiencing from the 90 degree L's.
Look online @ air handling systems and blast gate company. They show their 90's as a much wider sweep. I would think the idea of the 2-5's may work, but get to the Y pants with at least a 6" pipe.
We have a 15 hp collector and a 10hp collector and it did take some serious work and constant reworking until we also got it just right. I will post a few pics in the am.
The flex pipe to the planer isn't helping. I'd hard pipe and flex the last foot or so for hood movement.
