Finally got this rigged up, along with cleaning up a long neglected area. I like it.
I couldn’t find a Black Friday sale, but I got free shipping instead. Works for me! THANKS, Oneida!
My DC got better just by getting rid of this, and going with 6” hose.
I bought the hose, clamps and 5” to 4” reducer along with the cyclone and the braces. Connecting that 6” hose to the top of the cyclone generated a lot of cursing until I got smart about it. I secured it to the ceiling with a bungee cord to support the weight so I could use both hands to wrestle the hose on. I lubed it with some dishwash detergent and after more cursing it was on. I left the bungee attached, that’s a heavy hose.
I also used bungees to support the cyclone when it’s time to empty the barrel. All I have to do is hook up the bungees that are hanging back there, undo the clamp on the barrel and slide it out.
I sandwiched the barrel lid between two pieces of BB plywood. This is what is inside the barrel.
I haven’t yet given it a good workout, but it seems to me so far that it was worth it. Thanks to all for the good advice!
