This is a simple way to build a filter for your cyclone…wood, sheet metal, filters an screws.. the filters i used are the same i used in my last filter build…this filter can handle 2200 cfm…just needs a custom harbor freight paint job
built this one for a friend with the 2hp hf collector..

You are becoming something of a whizz kid on building these filters Steve. What are you using as a filter…..furnace filters????

Good work anyway.

It’s been 3 years since your original post and I am very curious to see how your dust collection filter system is working for you. I’ve scoured the internet looking for ideas on how to consolidate my grizzley g1030 dust collector. Your idea is by far my favorite! I also work for a trucking company and have access to large filters. I plan to mount the motor to the wall and have two filter tubes up near the ceiling with two filters each and a short connecting pipe and a homemade thein baffle. I want to use four filters because my dust collector is rated to 2300cfm. Needing your ideas and input on this project. Thanks, Mike
