Dust Collection Question - What do you use?

Hi guys - I am running a Centauro T5 for bats and I need to upgrade my dust collection system.  You bat makers running copy/cnc lathes, what do you use?  Do you use a 2-stage system?  My current system is a single stage starter system that can't keep up with the shavings the T5 can produce.  Any insight would be appreciated.  Thanks guys - Matt AverySee More
