Hi guys,

I’m getting ready to build a Muffler for my Oneida Air Super Dust 3HP Gorilla.

I got the idea from Bill Pentz website http://www.billpentz.com/woodworking/cyclone/Muffler.cfm

I’m just wondering where is the ideal placement for this? I didn’t see that in his website.

My guess is right at the 8” inlet on the cyclone?

Thank you
Old

The muffler goes between the filter and the cyclone chamber. If you read his plans again,he dropped the db level from 96 to 88 after installing the muffler there.

Ok, Go back to the bill pentz page and read Item G. under the COMPONENTS section, which is noise control. I was right the first time. between the cyclone and the filter.

Man, I am really glad I asked. I would’ve goofed big time. Well this isn’t good. the Oneida Gorrila filter connection is square, not round! Darn them!
thanks for the info!

I have a Penn State cyclone and I put my muffler between the cyclone and the canesters. Look at my blog, Dust Collection In.
