That is awesome! Did you angle the adapter inside the cone to create rotation?
Thanks for sharing.
Well done.

Have to say, ingenious use of a street cone. I too look for things that I can use for alternate purposes.

You are officially my new hero! I thought i knew how to “MacGyver” some stuff, but THAT is great!

A traffic cone…who would of thought.

Love it.

Just looking at the 1st pic, I would not have guessed that was a traffic cone. Thanks for also including the other pics that certainly give way to the suprises of using what you did. Ingenious use of alternative items, however, dont let the traffic people see it is one of theirs, they might be upset. I always wondered just what and how I would make a cone shaped part for my future cyclone.

Very cool! You’ve inspired me! Does Wally World sell traffic cones? Probably not, it looks like a good, heavy duty one.

A workman left a cone at my place and I can see it now being put to good use!

Excellent job of seeing what you needed to look at. As the fellow said earlier about McGuyver…You really McGuyvered it!!!

I truly wished that I had thought of it!!!

You obviously have the same proplem as I have. The barrel will shrink because of the vacuum from the vacuum cleaner. What shall we do to prevent this? Any suggestions?
