This is a home made dust cyclone I made it is hooked up to my shop vac I used a 10 foot. Board to support” the cyclone It seems to work way better than I expected. I collect all the dust from all my projects into the bucket. Please check out this vid of it in action. Http://

I like it. Your filter does look a bit dusty though, does it still get plugged pretty quick?

Yes there was a small amount of dust in the filter but that was a lot of dust It sucked up all at once and I did not clean it to good before the vid but during normal use there is not any dust in the filter . Even when hooked to my belt sander 99% of the dust ends up in the bottom of the bucket and that dust is super fine. Thanks for watching and commenting.

Clever. It’d have been nice to see how it did without the cyclone though for the sake of comparison.

I’ll be making one of these in the future. As soon as I find a traffic cone…

Thats what I’m thinking. Stop by a construction site when no one is looking…. I suppose you can probably buy them somewhere, that would be more legal.

This is way awesome. I want a cyclone like this. Totally dig the clear view glass up top. You got some skills man.
How did you make this? Did you follow plans or was this something you thought of your self? I like how it all matches, too cool dude!!!
