YOU DID IT !!!!!!!Good job on the homemade cyclone. I watched the videos and it works great. But, what I want to know is, how did you make the clear cyclone part?

I really like it. It is simple and works great. Good videos too. Thanks for posting it.
I did Google the dispenser and found at least one for $12. I would say that is a pretty inexpensive cyclone. I am sure if you look around there are other devices that would work too.

Very cool! May I inquire as to how you constructed it? May I have your permission to use your design as a basis for making my own? Also, do you think it would work if I used a wing nut or a knob for the release side of the plexi-glass retainer? Thanks for your time.

Beeguy, could you post what you found googling? I mostly see glass and square digging around for a couple of minutes with google images looking for such a shape.

Very cunning but simple design – I’ve stored the idea in my brain for future reference.(After joining Lumberjocks recently my head is already becoming rather full!)On your boxed version, do you leave the button on the vac depressed and switch it externally to save opening the door – or is a no-volt release system?

Good idea I will be building one of my own hopfully soon. This is the only canister I could fine, did anyone find differently.
It’s only $10.50 but it about 12” tall so I am not sure if it would work. What do you guys think? It should work with a 5 gal bucket and this dispenser on top, I think.
