Here’s my big idea for converting a HF to a 2-stage DC. I sold my Jet and bought the HF for $139. I got the vortex (?) lid from Woodcraft and am using a regular plastic trash can. I didn’t take the time, yet, to draw in the intake/outtake hoses, and I don’t know how to draw the plastic bag, but you can get an idea of the concept. I must confess, however, I already built one of these, but it turned out to be too small. It was too short, too narrow, and not deep enough, other than that it was pretty good. I will add pictures in the next entries.
