I spent some time looking, but I’m having a hard time finding the great looking DC and cyclone setups I’ve seen before! It’s a long story, but I’ll be starting my shop over at a new location and hoping to improve on things I’ve learned on the way with my current one.

I’ve seen guys, in order to minimize their footprint, who have raised their DC off the ground in-line with their cyclones. I would like to pull something like this off as my new shop area will be smaller. Does anyone have any good pictures or links that would be helpful!!

Here’s mine. I kept it simple, and separate parts plumbed together. Someday it has to go back up the steps, it will be easier to carry individual parts.

Here’s how I modified my HF dust collector. This may be more than you want to do.

Thanks, that looks similar to the setup I was thinking of just maybe not mobile!
