« Part 3: Drill press bench [Shopsmith shorty] Part 4 of Setting up my new small shop series Part 5: Small work table on casters »

Put the cyclone up on the wall to save space, it blows out side thank you very much.

I was in Walmart and happened to go through the pool section and found 30’ a hose for $32.
I was afraid it would whistle badly but turned out just right.
This will make it possible to get any where in the shop for clean up.
I know it’s to long but it works and I’m happy!!!

Here’s the blog about the cyclone, a year or so back.

The shelves were already in there so I can live with them for now, and maybe for ever. lol

I’ve also found that pool hose was an economical way to bulk buy dusty hose (especially at clearance sales). I picked up 50M for just over $40.

What did make it easy (for me) was to be able to cut it up into manageable lengths and 3D print couplers to integrate into my existing “keep dust outa my nose” system.

PS. Still like your timber cyclone.

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Have your say...
