Just thought I would share my version of the HFDC Thien Baffle transformation. I didn’t want to have my motor permanently mounted to a wall above the barrel, so I decided to attach it right to the metal lid of the barrel, which worked great. I plan on venting it outside since there is very little dust that the separator doesn’t catch based on most peoples reviews.
This design is based off of Phil Thien and his research and work in creating a design for a cyclone baffle. You can find more information here:
I used the pipe template making software at:
to create the cutting templates for both cutting the pipe and the side inlet. The pipe was attached to the barrel using 5 minute epoxy and turned out to be very strong and was an original concern of mine.
