I took the day off work to install my Clear View Dust collector.
About 4 hours later it is running. (I did everything alone)

My shop

This is the lean against roof that I built last year all around my shop to store my lumber, where I am going to install the Clear View.

I made and I installed the support bracket. I used 6×3/8 lag-bolts

This the 5HP motor and the impeller, this assembly is very heavy.

The motor and impeller are installed, Doing it all by myself was a real job ( I am over 63 years old)

This is the impeller housing

The impeller housing is instaled

This is the cyclone itself

The cyclone is installed

Now the filters are installed.
Test, It runs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations! I know how it is to work by myself. Sometimes I think I’m getting to old to lift a sheet of plywood. Nice work. I hope it works well for you.

Bert if you ever spoke the truth you did when you stated the mote and impeller is heavy! That thing is HEAVY. You got this right up. Good for you. Enjoy.

Jealousy headed your way! I had decided that Clear View cyclone was the tool of choice for my shop, but that decision puts off the purchase a couple years until I can afford it. Your install looks neat.!

Hey Bert, We’re the same age so I can relate. Good job on the install and it runs pretty quiet. I can just barely hear it from my place. LOL

Looks good Bert, glad to hear its up and running. Now how do you plan to connect it to your machines?

Good to see the progress Bert. What is your reaction to the noise with it hanging where it is?
