« Part 3: Progress report Part 4 of Dust Collector Series series Part 5: Intake pipe installed »

Ok, so here’s the latest, The cones is assembled, as well as the intake pipe and the center pipe. I need to create the container for the bottom, and mount the cyclone, Sand and attach the intake pipe. You can figure out most everything else from the photos, however I will try tom put a description under each one.

Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions, I am just about out of scrap and pallet wood, so the project is on hold until I can dumpster dive for some more, enjoy.

strips for intake pipe cut and backed with painters tape.

Intake pipe clamped and drying

Top installed and ready to be trimmed with flush router.The back of the cyclone I made higher to mount a motor with a squirrel cage assembly. Currentley I will be using the shop vac until I can find these parts in the dump, or on Craigs list.

Ready for sanding and attachment.
