« Part 2: Cutting Circles Part 3 of Thien Baffle Separator series Part 4: Dust Collection 101 »

Here’s a couple pictures of what I worked on today in the shop, I’m pretty much done until my 5” hose and wye come in from Penn State.

I’m thinking about taking the 2 HP motor and mounting it on the wall and put the separator directly below b/c the separator wont fit under the saw when I add the 5” hose, moving it out from under there is going to result in a longer runs, I dont want that!

ANY ADVICE ON THIS MOD???? PROS/CONS?

That’s a good question? I haven’t installed that plexi yet, waiting on my wye to come in before I make to final install of the plexi. I’m thinking of running veneer also, I just had the plexi laying around, still thinking….... lol

What about a piece of galvanized metal flashing? If you have to buy too much try an A/C place where they make duct. They always have scraps.

I’m about to make this same Thien Baffle, as I like the design and implementation. Do you have any updates to add? Have you installed/used it? I do have one question regarding the dimensions: What is the hieght of the seperation chamber (from the bottom of the cover to the top of the baffle plate)?

Yes, I use it every day, it works GREAT! The chamber is going to vary depending on the hole size, I have a 5” hole on the side and top, that being said it’s just over 5” from the bottom to the top. I hope I answered your questions correctly.

You did. Thank you, for the quick response.
I’m just waiting for my Wynn 35A 274NANO filter to arrive, then I can start to “Hot Rod” my 2HP HF DC!
