« Part 7: Building the containment Part 8 of Dust Collector Series series Part 9: Small Progress »

Could not do much work this week as I was away on business for a few days, but Friday after work I picked up where I left off. Its not the most beautiful piece, but it will be painted completely and maybe a mural of a fire breathing dragon on it, (YEA BABY!). I still have plenty to do before its finished, but at least the drawer and the lower unit is basically done. I left a slight gap when the drawer closes as I am adding some weatherstripping to make it air tight when the locks clamp together. So enough chit chat, photos below.

This is awaiting a top and a bottom covering to close up any air gaps, we will see what plywood, I can scrounge this weekend

Here is the drawer that will hold all the sawdust and wood chips, still needs to be sealed

This is the drawer together with the bottom container.

This is with the cyclone just placed on the container, and the wheels on temporarily installed.

Thats all for now more to come soon.

I see you took my advise about the dragon. Cool.
That is one awesome looking contraption man. If you made plans, I’d like to give it a try one day. I’m getting tired of the shop vac.
