So i decided to finally build my Thien Dust Collector. I have to say this thing work un-believable….. The only picture i’m missing is with the reveal cut out of the lower baffle. Lets just say i took the bottom baffle, measure the circumfrance, divided by 3 and i started right at the mouth of the inlet pipe and measure 1/3 around, then next 2/3 (which returns you back to the opening of the inlet) were cut back 1.25”. I took the shop vac apart and cleaned it since it’s about 8 years old and never been cleaned. I put a new filter in it and it SUCKS!!! i will begin to crush the steel garbage can if you block to much of the suction. I vac’d up a ton of sawdust from plywood, mdf, hardboard, and then opened the shopvac, and the filter was still pure white. PERFECT…. How did i live w/o one of these before…...
