My dad gave me a small dust collector from harbor freight for Christmas. It was great for re-sawing but the shavings from planing and joining always clogged it up. So I got the cyclone lid from Woodcraft, and a steel trash can from Home Depot and then built a mobile cart around it. It is nice and compact vs the two of them being separate around the shop and it no longer clogs. If you count the dust collector itself as being free (since it was a gift), I think i spent a total of less than $120. Not bad, I’d say.
