This is a great way to make a a Delta 50-760 single stage collector into a double stage collector w/o increasing the footprint. The first thing I did was to add a sturdier floor to the base made of OSB. That really strengthened the rather flimsy original, plus the original doesn’t go all the way across the bottom. I built the Thien separator from MDF and added a steel can, very easy project, there is a ton of information how to do this all over LJ and Phil Thien’s website. The baffle and lid for the can was an easy thing w/ a simple circle cutting jig on the band saw. I added a Wynn filter to complete the project. I had to put a gasket on the rim of the opening to get a seal on the filter. It comes w/ a bunch of turnbuckles and complicated instructions for attaching the filter. I opted for a simpler approach, two bungee cords and a stick, see picture 3. It will make removing it much easier. BTW, the 1 micron filter bag in the last picture is up grabs for the cost of shipping. The first person to PM me gets it. It has a 16” opening.
