I’d like to sell this homemade cyclone dust collector. It works well, but the cyclone will clog if doing heavy planning or jointing. I’m willing to sell just components and scraping the rest. If the design isn’t to your liking, it certainly has all the components you need to create your own. Honestly, it should really be used with a “real” cyclone design.
This thing sucks! (In a good way). It is currently fitted with a 1HP motor and Dayton Blower and two 1micron filter bags. I currently have 6 drops to a planer, drill press, router, bandsaw, jointer, and table saw. Along with the dust collector, I am selling all the accessories (pipes, blast gates, fittings). The cyclone section separates the dust well and I rarely have to clean the filters. If the design is not to your liking, its still a great buy because it has all the necessary components build another system.
$200 takes it all – I’d also be willing to swap for a horizontal belt sander.
Included in this sale is:
There is probably more stuff that I didn’t list. This is an inexpensive way to build your own dust collector. Either use as is or take the components and build one that is right for you. The separator works well for normal woodworking, but can get clogged when doing heavy planning or jointing.
