The three bucket lids I used were mismatched to the buckets I had, but this led me to slice off the threaded part of the lids and rely on friction, gravity, and suction to maintain the structural integrity. It turns out this is quite sufficient and makes emptying both dust bins easier. I’ll probably add some bungee cords to hold things together when I get around to it.
The 1-1/2” PVC coupler is epoxied to the bucket lid. I haven’t added any tubing below the lid although I notice that most dust extractors have some extension into the cyclone. Anyone know if there’s a good reason for this?
