I hooked up for the first time my 1 H.P. D.C. to my bandsaw (and later my tablesaw) via the cyclone lid and did some work. The suction from the can was strong and most of the dust (99% according to the spec.) was collected in the can. The can also provides some protection for my motor fan in the D.C. as large pieces, wood or otherwise, are not sucked into the D.C. directly.
There’re several kinds of such lids in the market. Get the ones that make the inlet air swirl around. See the swirl mark left in the can as shown in the pic. Mine was from LV ( http://tinyurl.com/66acqe ). Worth the investment.
