I’ve been fixin’ to put a Thien style plate into my single stage Grizzly canister DC…. but it hasn’t risen very high on the priority list…. untill I emptied the bag and took a look up inside the filter the other day….
Yikes! what a mess.
So after spending the better part of an hour outside wit an air hose cleaning the filter, I decided now was the time.
One measurement (inside diameter) was all I needed… and I drafted up the “standard” thein plate geometry. and cut it out of a piece of 1/2” salvage particle board.
I drilled three holes in the side wall and then applied some foam gasket tape to the short (120 degree) section of the seperator plate and attached it to the wall with three pan head sheet metal screws.
Then I scrounged up a couple long 1/4-20 binder style bolts to support the other side.
And in keeping with tradition, I decorated it with a Killroy charicature.
Now to fill up the bag and inspect it to see how well it helped to keep the filter canister clean.
