The price is right but do you have any experience with this cyclone?

Just be aware that it’s a cyclone only that attaches to an existing DC. No motor, blower, or filter.

With a little more reading, this looks like something that some guy is making in his garage. May still work fine, especially if the design is just ripped off from existing sources. But if he’s just winging it, a bad cyclone would be worse than no cyclone at all.

It looks like a dustbin with a funnel .I have seen these with easy to make plans :D Seriously it looks well made I must say ,but you could do it yourself at a fraction of the cost of buying saving maybe up to 75% Alistair

Hi! Alister, good to hear from you.
Yes, I probably could do my self bu this one is already made and I am willing to pay a reasonable price so that I do not have to do it.
How is your hand?

It looks like today is “dust collection day” I have now commented on three different dust collection blogs.
Here is post by Karson with a cyclone and a similar collector.
I also found this utube shop tour that has an ebay cyclone that’s briefly shown.

Bert, After thinking about this cyclone that you are asking about, I had an idea for you. Over on the Clear Vue Cyclone’s site I see that the company is probably under new ownership and going to be relocated. They offer parts needed to build the business end of a cyclone collection system. They have Impellers and other parts needed. You could probably save money by building a blower housing and filter ducting the way that the Clear Vue is made. If you haven’t already, check out the Clear Vue site. I hope this is helpful in your hunt for the dust collection solution for your new shop.

559dustdesigns ( what do you do being up so early in the morning) , thank you very much for all your help.
I already have a HF 2hp dust collector, that I would like to do is to mount it on the top of the cyclopes and to install a cartridge air filter on the exhaust.
I shall be looking for idea on the Internet

I like clear view products, I was looking at this system:
CV1800 RH Combo
The price is about a pay period for me which is acceptable.

I think it should work fine for you. I would although check their return policy first before taking the plunge, just in case your not satisfied with it.

I was going to suggest you look at the one on ebay and see some of the configurations people have made using that cyclone which appears very similar to amazon link. But it is $199.00.
Not sure if same seller on ebay and amazon but I did buy the ebay one(item 270423194251) and mounted a 2 hp general dust collector directly to the flange on top. Easy hookup and it has worked great so far. I have about 80 feet of 6” pvc for main trunk on the ceiling and 4” drops to equipment, except a 5”drop to a 12” jointer. I used a 55 gal plastic drum to collect chips and dust.

559dustdesigns Can you tell me about your heat pump. I’m looking for some way to heat my shop in the winter, northern Ohio snow belt area and thought this might be the answer. My shop is 14×35 with 12’ ceilings. Do you think a portable heat pump will work?

Elksniffer, what you did is what I want to do.
Do you have pictures?
What do you to filter the exhaust air?

I’d say that would be an excellent combo. The HF DC and the Amazon cyclone that is. For that kind of money I’d think it’s worth a shot. Basically the cyclone is just a large chip collector anyhow.
