I have a Jet DC-1900 dust collector and I’m thinking about venting it outside but I would need a flange to replace the metal Y that goes to the bags with a pipe to go outside. Basically a rectangle flange that transitions to a four inch round pipe. Any idea where I can buy something like that?

MacDonald Supply up in Bellefontaine? If they don’t have it, they MIGHT make one for you.

Get the measurements of the rectangular opening and then hit a local HVAC supply house… look for a plenum register box that matches the size of the opening (or close enough to work if nothing else). They are quite common, at least around here, where you run a trunk line down the middle of the attic and string off individual outlets from it using round flex hose to the registers… and 4” is a pretty common size. You might also find some square to round transitions that could work.

Cheers,
Brad

Why not build a box out of 3/4 plywood, just big enough to clear the rectangle and bolt to the DC. Make it about 4 inches deep and drill a 4 inch hole in the opposite side.
I’ve used this technique on the suction side of my DC.

Thanks guys. I’m going to mill around Lowe’s today when I go to pick up something else and see if they have anything like that in the HVAC stuff. If not I will check out MacDonald Supply

I just built a plywood box. I also did 7” for the exhaust as that was the best match area wise to the jet. This works just fine.

That looks cool Bill. Do you get any issues with dust or chips getting stuck in the corners of the box before they get pushed into the round opening?

Shane. I set this up with the eBay cyclone, so there is no issue for me with chips. My biggest problem was standing it up, since I don’t have any help. I ended up moving my HF hoist temporally to stand it up. As said I did 7” exhaust as this matched the cyclone exhaust and area wise the Jet exhaust. What you could do is use a piece of plexiglass to monitor if necessary. I do not get any visible debris outside at all.

Edit: I would do some type of separator. My cyclone was about $250 shipped.

I would like to at some point. I will probably not vent to outside until I have one.

Do you have any idea what the micron rating on the bags that come with the Jet are? I have the white DC-1900 and I can’t find any documentation on that.

Bill I can’t find the cyclone like yours for sale. Any tips on finding it?

Cyclone

I could only find the small one on eBay. I think he is selling them through here now.

The large one appears to be the same as I have.

Bags
My 1900 was the older blue vintage. It had 30 micron bags, don’t know about the white 1900 bags.

I did confirm that it was the 30 micron bag as well. I decided to order some 1 micron bags to replace them until I can get it set up to vent outside. The nice thing is that I have a storage closet in my shop that the DC fits nicely into so I just ran the power to that, and now I can run it in there with the door shut. Once I get it venting outside it will be dumping directly onto our compost pile which will be nice, and we live in the country so it won’t annoy anyone.

Got the table saw and planer hooked up to the dust collector last night. I just need to get the jointer done now. I found a few things I want to tweak but otherwise I’m pretty happy with it.

I’m having a little trouble getting the new bags on the collector to make a perfect seal and I need to install the blast gates (which are supposed to arrive today). I also ordered a couple of 45 degree elbows to ease the transitions from the ceiling to the floor level when it drops down.

Have your say...
