For what its worth, I really dont think a drain "assembly" is needed. Just the pvc pipe up through the bed and a drain cover over top of that. I struggled for a day trying to figure out how I was going to get a drain assembly under the bed of my Stinger SR24 (the answer was...I wasn't!) Then the ole light bulb went off and I returned both drain assemblies to the Borg. Of course, you guys with bigger machines and more room under the table dont have that issue. But I still dont see what the drain assemble accomplishes??? See the pics of my table...

Joe, the "drain" assemblies are more or less just an easy way to handle the need since you screw them together. But I believe you are correct that they are not "required" and it makes sense to be creative when clearance isn't there.

Yup, I thought it would be easier then trying to find all the holes to line them up. I just slathered on the glue and away I went. Killed 2 birds with one stone by sealing the bottom of the 1 inch mdf with the glue I used to glue it down with.

Bob, in your "copious free time", will you take a few pics of your piping under the table? I'd like to see what you did for routing, etc. I'm adjusting the design slight because of how my machine is positioned but it will be helpful to see your installation in that respect. Thanks in advance!

I used the rubber couplers so when/if I ever build my workshop itíll be easier to disassemble and reassemble.

I too used the rubber coupler from the bed of my Stinger to the pipe going to the Storm. I have used it several times already to move my machine for several reasons. Best advice I ever followed from someone here much smarter than me.

Thanks, Bob. Those photos are very helpful. I will have to decide if I want to bring things out the back like that or do a manifold under the right side of the table and just send the main run out the back. If I do this, the vacuum system will be physically located in my DC/Compressor closet rather than at the machine. I'm more inclined to do the manifold under the table so I don't have to pull the whole thing farther from the wall due to my space constraints. Excellent idea using the rubber couplings including for a little vibration reduction that wouldn't come if you used unions for disconnect.

The drain covers are mostly for looks, but once a long time ago I was installing a cnc before covers and sucked a shop rag into the system. Iím so glad the filter was installed or I would have destroyed a $5,000 blower. After that we came up with covers.
