Built this cyclone and cart to eliminate the use of additional hoses running everywhere and to utilize the original 7ft hose that came with the vacuum. Now I can easily move my dust collection to all all my tools in the garage as needed.

Do all the parts pull apart when you want to dump the bucket?

Yes, the PVC going to vacuum is a tight seal and is easy to separate when dumping the bucket. The hose attachment to shop tools is also a tight seal but easily removed.

Good work. I find myself also this is the best way to have it always on hand, in one of my ’’tools and maschines’’ projects.

The juxtaposition of the Lowe’s bucket next to the Home Depot Ridgid vacuum is the best part. Nicely done little cart. Did you use the casters from the vacuum for the cart?
