Ummm …. should the inlet to your cyclone go in at a tangental angle so that centrifugal force holds the dust to the side and the lighter air gets sucked up through the center hole? Maybe I didnt see that correctly 3:59 in the video.

Hi Jordan,

Do you have it configured with the inlet going in at 90 degrees to the circumference or tangentially? I was looking at Bill Pentz’s web page (the cyclone guru) and I am very interested in any cyclone build I can find, I really liked the way you projected the drawing to get the cyclone size you wanted. I also liked the confident way you got that sheetmetal cut out and stiched together in no time flat.

Regards Vince.

I have it going 90 degrees to the Circumference, not having a commercially available system that i can look at / compair the efficiency and design to I cant really say that it works to the same level, but it gets alot of the dust (the bag on my extractor is still empty but the filter has got some fine dust buildup)

Im going to be making a smaller version for my shop vac and will film that one and go into more detail with the video.

French cleats are a great way to go. I use them whenever I can. Knocking down that wall really gave you a ton of room. Forgive me for my jealousy. Looking forward to more.

What a great space Jord. Looks like it’s coming along nicely and you’ve got lots of great ideas.
