Well, the last day of the “Safety Week” is a good time to start a project that will help keep the workshop clean and safe.

Already much has been talked about cyclone, so I will simply attempt to show step by step how to do mine.
The parts I use are readily available in my country and pretty cheap.
1 – Vacuum: An older model 800 W and 2-inch hose that so far has given me very good result, with the only problem that fills up very fast and the system filter (paper bag) is not very good. Both problems will be solved by the cyclone and filter car respectively.
2 – Safety Cone: must have smooth interior and be sized according to the use that will give you. The one I got is 24 in height.
3 – Container: a paint pan 20 liters ordinary. You can buy new, but almost always have one at home …
4 – Ducts: pvc duct with pipe fittings (couplings, elbows, reducer) and vacuum hoses (not shown in the photo).
Wish me luck and stay tuned.
Greetings.
Martin

Bueno, siendo el último día de la “Semana de la Seguridad” es un buen momento para comenzar con un proyecto que ayudará a mantener limpio y seguro el taller.

Ya mucho se ha hablado sobre ciclones, así que me limitaré a mostar el paso a paso de como haré el mío.
Las partes que voy a utilizar son fáciles de conseguir en mi país y bastante económicas.
1 – Aspiradora: un antiguo modelo de 800 W y manguera de 2 pulgadas que hasta ahora me ha dado muy buen resultado, con el único problema de que se llena muy rápido y el sistema de filtro (bolsa de papel) no es muy bueno. Ambos problemas serán solucionados con el ciclón y un filtro de automóvil respectivamente.
2 – Cono de seguridad: debe tener el interior liso y ser de un tamaño acorde al uso que le daremos. El que conseguí tiene 60 cm de altura.
3 – Recipiente: un tacho de pintura de 20 litros común y corriente. Se puede comprar nuevo, pero casi siempre tenemos en casa uno…
4 – Conductos: caños de pvc con sus accesorios (acoples, codos, reductor) y mangueras de aspiradora (no mostradas en la foto).

Deséenme suerte y estén atentos.
Saludos.
Martín

I thought of the same idea before, but most of the safety cones I’ve seen in my area are too soft and will collapse under suction, so I bought a dust deputy.

I hope yours work.

Good luck

I have been torn on what to use as a funnel. Great idea.
