Just saw this and wanted to share it with you in case you are looking to buy a new dust collector.
I have the JET with the cartridge filter system and it is a great machine , however , I am wondering if JET will offer the new “cone” as an add on for sale to owners of their older DCs , like mine.
The video at the end of the article is slightly humorous and worth watching ,IMO. LOL

Have a great day everyone : )

Interesting; I think that there was a LJ who had build a Thein separator b/t the canister and the bag that had acted the same way.

I wouldn’t think it would be all that difficult to retrofit cone and bracket from new machine parts list et volia! (there you have it!)

I agree. That is the way to keep it entertaining and informative at the same time!

Hi Dusty!

From what I’ve seen on their website, I think they have progressed in their products. That being said, IMHO, I think you could add the Baffle from Phil Thein into your dust collector, and get about the same result. I’ve done it to my dust collector with good results. Just a different perspective to the issue…...

With all this marketing hype, still the best way is to add a separator to your collector, and plus it cost cheaper.

It seems they wont have the cone for older models for a while.

Yes the separator will reduce the efficiency, but it will do better filtration. Change the bag with canister, it makes a big difference.

Adding a separator in the DC ring should not reduce efficiency at all.
Adding a separate separator does.

I put a thien baffle directly in the DC ring, and my anemometer claims the incoming CFM is the same as without it.
I could imagine this may change if you have less filter area, etc.

Have your say...
