Well….It’s finally done!
I have completed my dust collection upgrade.
I now have a fully functioning Cyclone.

Please note that my shop is in “garage mode” in these photos.

I made the modifications recommended by “Carl” I added the “V” shaped baffle and I did notice a reduction in noise. (I forgot to take a picture and I wasn’t about to take it all apart again)
I also updated the Exhaust to 6” HVAC and I am using a 6” dryer vent to pipe it out of the garage/shop.

I then assembled the ducting and gates. I have 4 drops in all.
Two 4” for my planer & Joiner. (You can see my WEN air cleaner in the foreground)

It then goes up to ceiling height and has a 5” drop for my table saw.

It then passes over the entire width of the garage/shop and makes a final 4” drop to where my Ridgid sanding station lives.

All in all the total run is about 28’.

The total cost of this upgrade, including the WEN was about $900.

I was not happy with the way the Oneida ducts and fitting came together and will be having a chat with them later this week. There was no way to get my first 5’ section of pipe to mate with the opening in the Super Dust Deputy. I tried everything including re-crimping the pipe. It took some imagination and a rubber plumbing fitting to make the union.
Anyway, It is all together now and seems to be working well.
Thank you to all who made comments and gave advice throughout this project.
You are all a truly great resource for the woodworker.
