Max sawdust, if you can get to the bottom of the hill to retrieve the junk metal its now worth 140 to 200 a ton. ;) A scrap yard near me is paying $200 a ton for tin like car fenders, hoods, etc. When I had my bodyshop, they would take it off my hands for free, if I hauled it to them. :D

Thanks everyone for the assistance on this project ;D  After lots of study I decided to go CHEAP. :D
I bought a $180, 2HP 1phase 110V Central Machinery "dust collector"  Tossed the bags and stand in the trash, mounted the blower high on the wall,  and blow out the side of the building.  Simple and Works great! 8) 
I needed to cut off the tabs on the intake port, which were designed to prevent large chunks from hitting the fan, because planing NWC caused frequent plug ups. 

Next I need to put a furnace filter in front of a box fan as suggested.  Dat ought to take care of the fine stuff.

Max, I put the same blower on my sawmill. Like you tossed the bags and mounted the blower high up on the wall blowing through 6 inch stovepipe out into the woods. A 20 ft piece of flex 5 inch hose connects to the woodmizer. Like it so well I'm gona buy another to put on my woodmaster planner..
