I’m going to build a Thien separator soon. I found this page that tells how to convert that lid into a Thien separator. The general consensus is that in a 5 gallon bucket, most of the dust gets sucked back into the DC which defeats the purpose unless you Thien-ify. In any case, it’ll probably be easier and more efficient if you use something larger than a 5 gallon bucket, in which case this lid is what you need, it’s 21” diameter instead of 12”.
