My shop usually stays pretty clean. I have a pretty good dust collection system that captures the dust at the machines. I need to do something about the dust that’s created by hand sanders and hand held routers. I just built a set of tall speakers out of MDF and if anyone has ever worked with MDF knows the amount of dust you can produce.
I’ve used my shop vac to clean up the mess. I think I spent more time cleaning the filters on my shop vac than I did vacuuming. I decided on purchasing a mini cyclone. I was trying to decide between the CV06 from clear vue or a dust deputy from Oneida.I’m sure either one would do the job. I ended up going for a CV06 Mini cyclone from clear vue. I own a cvmax cyclone from clear vue and really happy with past service. Also 100% USA.
It came UPS a couple of days ago and I got around to hooking it up yesterday. I vacuumed the MDF dust all over the floor in my shop and even buried the head of the vacuum pipe into a bag of sawdust to test it out. After filling the 5 gal bucket that the cyclone empties into I looked inside the shop vac only to find it empty. Yahoo… know more cleaning shop vac filters.
I don’t like the idea of the cyclone being strapped to the side of my shop vac… too big and bulky. I’m thinking of building something a little more compact. Any thoughts? Any other mini cyclone owners?
