Topic tags/keywords: cyclone dust collector dust collection metal stand leg set cyclone stand

I have a Penn State Tempest Cyclone, the red 2 hp version, that is wall mounted. I am looking for a metal stand for the Tempest like this…

I called Penn State, and they no longer sell them. I’m sure a Grizzly or other brand leg set could be modified to work, but I was wondering if anybody had one they would consider selling. Tony M. over at Sawmill Creek said he had one last year.

I live in Washinton State, otherwise shipping is always an option.
I have had fantastic luck posting little things like this on LJ. Once I posted that I was looking for an Akeda dovetail jig, and within a week I had one! I am really grateful for this wonderful LJ community.

I would also be interested if anyone has used metal cyclone stands from other manufacturers like Oneida, Grizzly, Jet, Laguna etc, and how you altered it to fit your cyclone.

You might consider building one out of Unistrut. The only fabrication would be cutting it to the needed length. They sell all manner of fasteners to hold the pieces together.

Was going to propose that same idea myself, you could actually scale it better that way IMHO.

Yes, Unistrut or perforated angle iron would be an option. I bet it would add up more than a pre-fabricated unit though. The structure looks pretty simple, and could be customized to hang the cartridge filter and power switch.

Has anyone used the Grizzly stand, or something similar?

Hey, Willie, once upon a time I had a local guy weld up a frame for me. I don’t recall for certain, but I know it was less than $150 delivered and set up. That included powder coating and vibration attenuating feet. HTH

Hey Art,
That is certainly a reasonable deal. I know a couple local welders, maybe they could fab something from angle iron.

I’m just curious, but why not just make it out of framing lumber? Is it an aesthetics thing? The cyclone with the motor has to weigh maybe 50-60lbs at most, hell my clearvue with the 5hp motor and MDF baffle and cyclone body only weighs like 50lbs, if that can be held up on the wall by some cheap ass aluminum brackets than some SPF lumber can surely hold your cyclone.

146 lbs is the spec I have for my cyclone and blower. The thing is a beast. I just wouldn’t trust it on a wooden frame.

I ordered a leg set from Woodtek, so I’ll see if that fits or can be easily modified.
