Thanks for that info, Niki. That should filter out a lot of the larger particles as well as some down to a fairly small size, limiting the bag in the vac itself to catching the rest, at least to the level that the bag is designed to catch.
I would like to share with you, all those like me that cannot afford to buy DC, some modifications that I made to home vac to use it as shop vac.
I use it for everything around the shop, machines, floors, shelves and even for car and house cleaning.
The home vac that I use is almost 2HP (1600W) with speed control, so I can regulate the power according to the tool in use (no need all this power for sander)
I don’t know what is the “filtering” power, but I believe that its good enough if it’s used for home.
