Very familiar with bill’s site, but I’m not sure it meets my requirements for unbiased…unless I know I want a ClearVue cyclone. I was hoping there was some organization who had actually compared similar units in real world tests.

I had two separate shops due to space constraints but we just moved so am consolidating everything. I currently have an el cheap unit hooked to the planer and jointer and an Oneida mini gorilla hooked to the rest of the tools not making the huge mess. I’m not happy with cheap collector for fine stuff, but it’s not meant to capture that, so not a good solution for the shop. I’m really not happy with the mini gorilla. I think its a pretty poor design as I get a ton of debris in the filter. I dont think the funnel,is big enough to get that cyclone action fully going to get everything to drop out. It does a good job of filtering it out of the air, but I feel like I’m cleaning out the filter more than I’m making sawdust.
