I have a Delta 50-767 dust collector and it works fine. The hassel is emptying and replacing the bag.

I know down the road I would prefer to have seperator on the inlet but thought it would be easier and quicker to just find a barrel or drum that I could use in place of the bag.

I believe the 50-767 is similar to the 50-760 if not the same except cosmetics.

Is there any simple solution? From looking around I am guessing not. From what I looks like building a Thien separator on the inlet looks like the solution.

Making the separator would probably be just as easy as fitting a drum…and the drum may still not be as easy to empty as you want. But it will be if it’s away from the bag rack with the separator.

I would agree with Fred, I built my Thein Baffle for around $35 on a Saturday afternoon. Though, there was a day or two of mental planning and research. I definitely recommend building one. You will be amazed how well it works.

If you’re planning to do the baffle anyways then you might as well do it now and kill 2 birds w/ one stone. I don’t think there’s a drum that you won’t force you to spend some time making an adapter for it.

That was what I was thinking, but hoping someone had a simple solution and a easy to obtain drum.

Have your say...
