I totally agree with you guys about the DC, I have 5 extractors and a cyclone.  You COULD just use a dust mask whenever woodworking though.  My point was that a $500 extractor is not necessary.  Unless you do a lot of site work a Fein vac will do just fine, and you can easily get by with a shopvac and tool activated switch.  I love my CT's for site work but would not recommend them to a hobbyist, they are after all just a very expensive vacuum.

The adjustable suction on the CT's is essential for use with the sanders, and dust extraction while sanding improves the quality of the work.
