The alterations on this system cost me 20 bucks but it works. Not absolutely perfectly but pretty darn close. I have the cyclone deal hanging from the ceiling so I can just pull the trash can out from under it or put it back under easily. The suction creates a seal without having to mess with it.
It makes my life so much easier.
Plywood cut into a doughnut shape for the top
12” concrete form cut into the cyclone
6” vent cut up and made into the side vent
Tape, tape, tape, and more tape. I should have used duct tape but oh well, this will work for now.
6” flex tube
You should definitely try making one yourself.
I’ve been using this dust collector under very strenuous working condition with one of my shapers and my drum sander working at the same time for hours. I’ve noticed that even then my shop is so much nicer to be in because this contraption collects almost all of the fine dust that used to end up in my lungs.
