Has anyone done any testing to verify the blowers true capacity?

Look for Wood Magazine article in the March 2008 issue. They did the testing and published a performance curve.

Thanks for your reply. Bill Pentz sent me his critique and the blower falls short.

There is a real shortage of data about the HF unit and effects of the modifications people make to it.

If anyone has any real data, it would be great to share it.

Note: I do not have a HF unit and personally do not care. But the data would be helpful to the many people using it.

Are you able to share Bill Pentz’s data he sent to you?

I don’t know how to post Word docs…yet. But you can find a lot of great stuff at BillPentz site http://billpentz.com/woodworking/cyclone/blower.cfm#building_instructions

Have your say...
