« Part 1: Design and Adapting the Air Filter Part 2 of My Dust Collector Mod series Part 3: Pieces Parts »

I took yesterday off to be home for the replacement of my well pump and took some of that time to tinker with the dust collector. I added some foam tape the filter cap and to the outside bottom of the tub, where the clamp secures the dust bag. Much better seal there, now.

While I was emptying the dust bag, I tossed a few handfuls on the floor for an impromptu test. This thing sucks more than it ever has. My guess is the old filter bag had about 25 ft² of surface area. With about 10 times that (254 ft²) I knew, conceptually, that the cartridge filter should dramatically improve performance but I was still surprised with the actually air flow. It’s better than brand new.
