Agree looks like there is a leak in the system. I thought about building my own cyclone, I ended up buying the one off eBay, $250 shipped. It looks to have different proportions than what you built. I have a 3hp (from Jet 1900) and used that. The cyclone works extremely well. Very, very little dust gets by from my drum sander. I am fortunate to be able to vent outside, but would guess I could go 6+ months if I had a filter. There is no visable dust outside bu the vent.
