Actually, I went with the Oneida to get a smaller footprint…seems silly, know. I’ve also formed the opinion that the Oneida stuff is chit, and now wish i had got a CV. Anyway, the way my shop built unit was set up had the cyclone on the wall with a 55 gallon dust bin under it. Then the DC I had at the time was sitting on the floor right next to it, pretty much the way it came (Penn State 2 1/2 HP with bag filters). I had piped the DC to the top of the cyclone with 6” snap lock…I did it this way because my motor/blower was way oversized for the Wood design and hanging it above the cyclone wouldn’t have allowed me to use the 55 gallon drum I had. I wish I had some pics of the setup, but as I said that was quite some years ago and I sold the whole thing when I bought the Oneida.
