Up until now I have been using my Harbor Freight DC a 31 gallon garbage can with the separator lid from Wood craft. It worked, but not like I had hoped. I recently purchased the Wynn Environmental filter 35A and started to build a Thein separator lid using 4” hoses. I emptied the contents of the can and DC collection bag on the floor for comparison and then proceeded to install the Wynn filter and Thien separator. I was truly impressed with the overall improvement in performance, there was only maybe a 1/2 cup of fines (almost like flour) in the collector bag. I did do several modifications to the filter and DC. I had to added several layers of weather stripping the filter, I was getting some leaks and could not seal them with the original seal by itself. I also added weather stripping to the DC ring along with a stiffener for attaching the filter. The inside of the dc ring is so flimsy that when tightening the turnbuckles for the filter it was starting bend.

I plan on further modifying the HFDC to have it on a cart and the blower over the can with the Thien top hat.
