Yesterday I went down to Harbor Freight to check out the dust collector that they were running for $139. Based on the other good reviews I’ve seen on here I decided to give it a shot. I’ve got it home, assembled, and I’ve ‘dry run’ it a bit and it seems like it is going to be good.
That being said- I know that the filter bag is inadequate and I’m trying to figure out what’s next.
It appears everyone says the Wynn cartridge is the way to go- and I’m good with that but I’m confused about whether I’ll then need a ‘mod’ for it to fit. I’ve seen it written that no mod is needed- but when I go to the web site they have the write up on doing a mod. So- will I need to do some modifications to make it work or not?
Also- I take it from the forums that it’s good to add a 2 stage cyclone / separator. Would that be a dust deputy? It seems like that would just be too small for this application. It doesn’t look like the black trash can lid cyclones are quite as good? I’ve seen the write ups on the Thien baffles as well but I’m not sure I want to take that on at this point. I’d appreciate any input that others may be able to share?
