Started build today with parts I’ve collected so far.
• Attached 6” flange to HD Rubbermaid Trash Can lid and cutout hole
• Sized ducting to Super Dust Deputy –missing 5”-6” and 6”-4” adapters
• Loose fit output port components ( 5”-6” adapter, 6” 90 elbow, and another 6” flange to connect filter support shelf (to be cut to size)
The Harbor Freight blower will attach directly to the SDD via 6” connector and 5”-6” adapter supported by closet wall. The SDD will be bolted to a supporting shelf and a flange below to connect via 6” flex tubing to the trash can mounted on a dolly.
Considering making closet double wall with baffles to reduce noise (saw a similar approach to enclosing compressors to reduce noise a few years ago)
Orientation of blower to be bolted to supporting walls in to be built closet. Should work equally well on a mobile cart setup.
The output port will be connected to a .5 micron filter from Wynn Environmental and have a Gamma Lid collection bucket from Home Depot per Dick Wynn’s suggestion. Expect this system will come in less than $600 for a 2HP Cyclone DC. Not bad! If I need more HP to drive the planned shop ducting, since its modular I can R&R the HF Blower without too much trouble :-)
