« Part 15: Coughing - Gagging? Part 16 of Garage Re-Do series Part 17: Super Sucker Cleanup »

That’s a peek down the inside of the new Wynn Environmental filter - the 9E300BL one. I’m anxious to get some cutting done and get this puppy mounted on my Grizzly dust collector. Once I get it mounted and that, I’m going to move it over to a more permanent location and run one trunk of at least 6 inch pipe to the unit. The only problem with that is the PVC to “air pipe” sizing. It’s just frustrating to measure stuff and see the differences. I can get adapters for the 4 inch stuff very easily through my local Woodcraft store, but the 6 inch stuff might be a bit more difficult.

And . . . there’s always duct tape. :-)

I know there’s a moral in that story . . . . heheh!

I’m not sure that I understand the problem with the ducting, you should be able to find what you need at a hardware or home improvement store.

It’s the sizing on the dust collector—it’s actually 6 inch inlet (OD) and PVC pipe (like lighter gauge sewer) is about 6 1/2 inch ID on elbow . . . . well actually:

I’m still contemplating my “mega” trashcan cyclone with 6” pipe . . . but it was put on hiatus with the smaller 4 inch model.

If I’m not mistakein someone does make an adapter for that trasition, I just can’t remember who, I’ve never needed one because all I’ve ever used for ducting is 26 ga sheet metal ducting and everything fits. You might be able to find something in plumbing, like a Fernco coupler, or a drawband. PSI? has a couple nice drawbands.

Have your say...
