I wanted to wait and post this project when it was finally completed, but I can’t help myself. I’m so happy with the way it works, I wanted to share it with everyone here.
I picked up this cyclone on ebay after reading a couple positive reviews on some forums about it. I wasn’t expecting much, but I was tired of dealing with the stupid bag on the dust collector which is really a pain to swap out. It doesn’t take long to fill up the bag after planing several boards.
Anyway, I finished welding up the frame for it tonight and was anxious to try it out. I slapped the ductwork together and sucked up all the dust & shavings out of the full DC bag. I was really surprised that it pulled out this much of it in the can and only left a handfull of it in the bag.
Don’t laugh at my welds, this is the only the second project I welded. I still have a few more modifications to make on it and I’ll post up some more pics when it’s complete.
