After reading about all of the creative wok retrofits for dust collectors to simulate the JET vortex cone, it occurred to me, maybe you can buy the cone from JET as a replacement part. When I went to the official JET replacement part site and found the parts page for the DC-1100VX, all of the parts were listed included the cone and all of the parts were available for purchase EXCEPT the cone which is listed as continued. Really? I guess they have to list it as discontinued since they don’t have a parts status called “We don’t want you to be able to easily retrofit a non-vortex model”.

I think you nailed it Bob, instead of trying to get another $100 ( or some similarly outrageous price for a wok and some bolts) out of existing owners who want to retrofit, they are trying to encourage us to buy a new one. It seems like a really silly strategy to me, if I were gong to drop a bunch of money again I’d just go up to a cyclone. They should price it right about where a trash can and Thein separator price out; I think they would do some good business.
