I’ve always been surprised when people get those small cyclones to work right. I have a Tempest cyclone that Penn State used to sell. It looks huge compared to a portable cyclone. I get phenomenal separation with no chips or dust reaching the filter. When I check the cleanout in the pleased filter, it looks like it needs to be dusted with a Swiffer. That’s it.

Once you figure out how to improve separation, switching to hard piping will be the next step. Having that much flex pipe will destroy your useable suction. It makes a huge difference.

Good luck with your DC issue.
