One of the best Craiigslist buys I recently did was a $25 Vortex Separator Lid. I did a quick research on their price and design. OK not much to it. I had tried to make my own separator and watched many utube bucket separator and not pleased with this and that part. So lets give it a go for the price. It was working fine, very few chips or dust in my dust bag. This last buy of wood planks was a huge test of cross cuts for 3 days and a hose on the Miter Saw. Day 3 I had to see how it was going for collection. No amount of dust in the lower bag. 8 inches of dust in my Collector Drum…fantastic. For a lid that just drops the dust down and another angle lifts it out,it has some great action. I sealed my rubbermaid barrel with a pool noodle cut lengthwise and even in 2 parts. My pvc piping system is 3 inch with 10 feet of run, 4 T—-one to the collector, one to a gate with an 8 ft. 2 1/2 hose to anything…....no hi tech system here. The 1 hp collector does the job and is 20 years old, proving its worth in my small shop. Occasionally I will shop vac the lines.

Have your say...
