I have a Steel City Dust Collector that I have love. I have upgraded the filter with at JDS unit and I only had one complaint, how hard it was to keep the larger particles out of the filter. Having read the blogs on the new Jet Cone and the alternative solutions (Wok and pan method) I was excited to hear (from another posting) that Jet was now selling their cone and bracket as parts. I quickly ordered them and they arrived this week. The bracket was not quite long enough to reach across my unit so I improvised with a piece of steel from Lowes and I used the bracket just to sturdy things up. A few measurements and bolts (secured w/ lock washers and blue thread locker) the cone was installed. I cleaned out the filter before re-assembly and gave it a test run. So far so good, the chips from the joiner and planner stay in the bag and did not get up into the filter. I do not notice any reduction in suction and everything seems to be working great…. After some use I will provide an update but at this point I am very happy with the upgrade…. See the pics provided. the cable ties are there just to secure the Jet bracket to the piece of steel from Lowes.
