Here a a new barrel I got for my home made street cone cyclone I had a 5 gallon bucket but it filled up way to quick and now with the 30 gallon capacity should be able to work in the shop for weeks before it fills up. I have a video on how I did it if you are in to videos check it out

Great job converting. You make it look so easy.

I wish I could adopt a barrel instead of a 5 gallon pail. Too much weight to carry out of the dungeon. I suppose I could make a wooden ramp that folds out of the way when not needed. :)

Nice work and great video. I use both a bucket and a barrel. I made an adapter for the barrel. My cyclone is also a street cone. I mounted it inside a paint bucket. No fear of knocking it over. LOL

Very creative approach to making a cyclone DC. Where did you find the barrel?
