Thanks to all of you for your feedback, input and advice. I have contacted Oneida and received specs and dimensions of their 4” Dust Deputy, ( they recommended the 4” for my HF DC). I have scrapped my original plan based on Pentz’s figures and will have local machine shop cut and roll a piece of 22 g sheet metal that I have to Oneidas specs. I’ll rivet then seal the 1” seam. The top will be 3/4” plywood with 4” outlet to DC, (Oneidas’ recommendation), with a very short, less than 18” to DC inlet. As HF uses 4” hose for collection, I’ll keep 4” cone inlet. Considering using 5” or 6” hose to DC. Or should I convert 4” to 6” to cyclone inlet?
I spent two + hours sealing all openings on my older Rockwell TS, which greatly improved dust pick up. I’ll upgrade when finances allow to a larger impeller and a Wynn filter. I’ll post pics when I have something worth showing. Thanks again to all.
