My quick and cheap cyclone works great, but of course the bucket needs reinforced, I will probably just cut a few rings to fit on the inside. Definitely makes a huge difference in keeping the filter clean. Now I just need to make a rolling cart for it.
parts used: just 5 gal bucket, cut (2) 1/4” scrap plywood with jig saw and sandwiched the lid, used silicone and bolted the cyclone to the lid, very simple, but efficient.
I don’t really condone buying cheap stuff from China VS Dust Deputy…, but I could have gotten 3 of these (http://www.banggood.com/High-Efficiency-Cyclone-Powder-Dust-Collector-Filter-Top-Quality-For-Vacuums-IA1-p-1028998.html) for same or less than 1 DD cyclone. Anyways for those thinking about making a cyclone for shop vac, whatever brand, it is well worth it for a small shop without larger dust collections options, I thought about it when I should have just done it already. This cost a little over $15.
