« Part 3: Pieces Parts Part 4 of My Dust Collector Mod series Part 5: Final paint »

Progress has been slow thanks to various distractions but I now have the caster base painted with Krylon “Hammered” spray paint, in black to give it a textured, industrial look.

I also got the initial assembly of the chassis done:

Assembly was good ol’ glue and pocket screws. Once the paint on the base has cured completely, I’ll set the chassis and dust separator in place to dial in where to mount the cone support. A complication with that is that cones are round in cross section, right? Not this one. My Super Dust Deputy’s cone is oval…ish. I may gently take the heat gun to it and try to coax it into shape but worse come to worse, I’ll line the cone support with thick foam tape.
