I just wanted to post on here about a recent upgrade I made to my Jet DC.
Here is the story: I purchased the dust collector for $300 used from a guy nearby who is retiring from woodworking due to lung/ health issues. It is the 2hp model. He purchased it a while back and put on the canister filter. Now that it is in my hands, I decided to do another upgrade.
There has been some discussion on here about availabilty of parts (or lack thereof) for the vortex cone. I purchased the cone and bracket from here: https://parts.jettools.com/SearchResults.aspx?s=dc1100
It is around $37 plus shipping. They did not give me shipping info, but it was here in about 4 days.
The steel cone is of a thicker guage than I expected, and the bracket is about 1/8” thick steel. Very nice quality and for me, worth the money. I know we have the tinkerers on here that would like to do this upgrade (supposedly cheap) on their DC’s with sheet metal and a rigged up bracket, but this works great, was not very expensive, and is actually designed for this piece of equipment. To each his own in shoppery doodittles.
It works as designed, and is a great little enhancement of the Jet DC I own. I would recommend it for anybody looking to upgrade.
