I am assuming that’s a Thiel separator on the bottom there? Did you just ripe apart your original air handler to do that? I’ve sorta been loathe to do that, but seeing your sure does make me pause. I basiclly have EVERYTHING you have there, just in the original companent parts.
Was it difficult taking your dust collector apart? Do you buy chance have a picture of the orginal unit? I think mine is some chinese knock off (garage sale find), and I am UBER curious what you did to come up with the final product.
WHAT are the boards in the 4rth picture for???

After taking the filter off today and cleaning it with the air compressor she works like a champ!! I have 2 hoses hooked up to it so i’m able to attach it to machines with multiple ports. The Thien baffle collects about 98-99% of the dust, great addition to the shop!
The 4th pic is just showing you the daddo’s I made to insert the 3/4” ply, then I pocket hole screwed them together, just making it stronger to hold the 2hp motor. This modification is rather EASY!!! Build a stand, mount the motor horizontal, attach it to some sort of separator and your done! My original DC was a HF 2 hp DC you see everyone have on LJ. Hope this helps.

Very Nice. I see you still have that burnt orange sign in the background!! Santa wasn’t good to you this year or you would have an orange and black sign back there. LOLWhen you got the separator finished and tested I thought you posted that you were not happy with the amount of air flow from this collector. Am I correct with that? What have you decided? Are you using this until Santa brings a different unit or just pushing forward with this one??

I want to do one of these but the space is killing me and I still like watching the dust deputy spin and I’m cheap. Lance now you can go forever before having to empty it. Looks good.

He didn’t change the impeller at all, it’s still in the green metal housing with the big flex pipe coming out of it.
The only thing in the wooden box is the Thien baffle and air inlet and outlet. There is a post around here somewhere with the design for that.

Milo, reference my Thien Baffle Separator Blog, there is 5 parts, this might help out with the concept.
