Modded the single stage collector into a dual stage collector using to the super dust deputy from Oneida – Decided to to relocate the motor and blower above the cyclone and minimize the runs…..also hard mounted the cyclone under the blower and built a riser to bring the barrel into the cyclone. The barrel was a freebie from work.
Worked on this all day and not much scientific data to report – but here is a video of the first run, using a bucket of super fine dust – Some dust did make it to the second bag – see photos after the video…..
Here is the dust that made it into the second bag:
More than I would like but I will continue to tweak the system….
Since the cyclone is hard mounted above, I have to bring the barrel up to the cyclone:
The lift is hinged in the back and will lift the barrel straight up into the cyclone. Use another short 2×4 to lock the barrel tight up to the cyclone…
Some other photos from the build:
I’ll shorten up the flex tube runs after a few days of proving the layout…..
Thanks for looking.
UPDATE - Newer photos posted here.
