Default Ceiling track or swing arm

Which works best for dust collection on a Stinger III - a straight ceiling track or a swing arm?

Thanks
Ron

Ceilings under 10', the track is usually cheaper. over 10', the arms costs less than supporting the track at a useable height

Thanks! Will barn door box rail with the delrin bearings and trolley work?

Default Track

It seems like to me that a barn door track would be overkill to support the dust hose. You ought to be able to put together a Rockler Ceiling Track System (with extra tracks to handle the required distance) for less money. These are designed to move more freely than something that has to support a couple of hundred pounds for a hundred years.

Doesn't get much simpler/cheaper than that, Gary. Likely, a bifold door track (even cheaper) would also be plenty strong for this installation.

I found a Swivel to put at the top of my Draw Pipe above the dust head, Made a great difference to keep from binding

Your CNC tool path can run it in a circle and twist.

I might go to shop today and will take a photo

Amazon My Friend !

I have a much smaller machine so a bungee cord works well hung from my floor joists in the basement.

Bruce, I though I kept a clean shop but your shop is incredible. You do work in it, correct?
