This is what I call a woodworkers solution to a metal working problem. Made of SPF 2×4’s from the big box store.
The pictures pretty much tell the story. As you can see in pics 3 & 4 the cone is made using the bowl from a board method.
I am more than happy with the performance of the cyclone. I have filled the drum 5 times and there is not a handful of dust in the dust collector bag. Much more effective than the thein separator I had before.
Up next is to replace the filter bag on the DC with a cartridge filter and re-plumb the dust collection pipe.
If you have any question feel free to ask.
