Hi, just for the plaisir to share, here is my cyclone dust collector I have built this summer for my new small shop. The cyclone was made from a 5×8 24 gauge galvanised sheet metal. Filters and the carton fiber recipient are from PSI. The dust collection system is drived by a 2 HP motor and a factory 12 inches impeller (blower from the old 1 stage dust collector). I used Bill Pentz’s site for measurement.
I’m not used to speak in english, but I hope these pictures will inspire other woodworkers who would like to build 2 stage dust collector himself.
Here is the 5×8 24 gauge galvanised sheet metal.
Cutting the peices.
For the filters.
Spliter with foam between the 2 filters.
The bottom of filters.
Easy to disasemble.
I really love it and it runs!
I hope it will give some ideas…
