Thanks everyone, I really appreciate all the help immensely!

If someone could please point me in the direction of some pictures or instruction on how to do an “in the ring” Thien Baffle, I would be very appreciative!

I did look on the Thien forum a bit, but didn’t find what I wanted. I going to go back and look some more, and also join the forum as well. Looks to be another place with some great info!

After looking around a bit and researching possible mods to the HF collector, I see a number of things that should be quite simple and provide for a real improvement in performance! One major improvement being the 12” impeller from the Grizzly collector. Though that may come later.

But some low-buck mods that look like they should help some are relocating the motor so it blows directly into the ring, thus eliminating the flex hose from blower to the ring and the previously mentioned “in the ring” baffle.

And since I also happen to be pretty good with a sewing machine (yeah, yeah, laugh all you want) and I have an old heavy duty singer, I might look into finding some material they use to make the filter bags and “extending” mine a bit, or simply making a larger bag, if the material is affordable.
