Peter Fabricius's wooden cyclone
Peter Fabricius writes:
I enjoyed your building project of the small dust collector. Lots of technical info that I was not aware of. I built the cyclone designed by Ron Walters. It is small and sits under the small table for my belt sander. It is powered by the house central vac system. The big deal for me is that the filter bag stays clean and therefore has consistent suction, all my shop debris goes into the cyclone and then the 5 gal pail under it. So it's easy to empty out and it is very efficient. I never see sawdust in the central vac bag anymore. Nothing but the greatest. Please pass my comments to Ron with a big thanks.
