RE: Your Jet Dust Collector. If you go to ROCKLER and ask to see inside the cyclone model dust collector, you’ll see that all they added was a cone shaped addition beneath the hole that separates the bottom bag and the top “filter” suspended with a bar across the opening. Others have added this too. Check this link:

I made this modification to my delta 1.5 hp dust collector. I made a metal cone but using a cheap wok cover should work too as pointed out in the above link. It’s also an easier solution.

I also added a cyclone to my system. If you’re interested, you can take a look at my modification at this link. IThis addition also prevents chunks of wood traveling through the impeller of the DC. Very little gets to the bottom bag of my DC.

Hope this helps.
