Darth, Great blog and pics of the assembly. I have that same unit and didn’t cut the bag down just rolled it down over the drum rim and under the latches; and I remove the bag to dispose of the dust/chips in my garden. My only problem was reducing the 6” to 5” reducer down to 4” for my 110v electrical system and piping. A PVC reducer of 5-4” won’t fit there 6-5” steel reducer. Solution: a heavy rubber Cast Iron to PVC (CI/PVC) plumbing reducer with clamps, purchased at Lowe’s worked perfectly. I found no need for replacement casters since once the vacuum piping/tubing is installed I don’t move my system more that 2 feet, and then by that only allowed by the length if flex hose. I just unlatch the drum lid slide the drum out from under the lid by raising it slightly . The hose that sucks the bag into the drum for full capacity won’t allow you to move the drum far. Lift the bag out and away ya go. The holes in the bottom of the drum are gonna drop dust out if no bag is used and I’m uncertain as to how the flex hose from cyclone to drum will effect your efficiency? I really like my system with the exception that once I am able to use more hard piping and use 220v and the 6” first stage of the cyclone I’m certain I’ll enjoy MUCH better collection.
