Jealousy headed your way! I had decided that Clear View cyclone was the tool of choice for my shop, but that decision puts off the purchase a couple years until I can afford it. Your install looks neat.!

Hey Bert, We're the same age so I can relate. Good job on the install and it runs pretty quiet. I can just barely hear it from my place. LOL

Nice job, Bert! I installed mine by myself several years ago and it was a wrassle! That motor is really heavy. Do you plan to enclose your cyclone? The noise you can't hear in the shop may be heard by the neighbors. If you do be sure to allow as much space around it as you can to make it easier to service the filters. I used 3" rockwool batts in 2×4 studded walls with the inside surface not covered. The batts stay in place by themselves. I also insulated the doors the same way. It makes a big difference.
I plumbed my system with 6" thin wall PVC, which worked out very well.

Congratulations on finding such a good deal on a wonderful tool. You will love it!

Paul, where do you get 6" thin wall PVC?
Noisy it is. Inside the shop it is OK but outside it is very loud.
Yes., I shall enclose it
"3" rockwool batts" where to get this stuff?
Home depot?
For return is I plan on making a large opening in the wall and to install a fan
(may be just cheap box fan) and a grill, the issue with that it that the noise is going to come in the shop also.
May be I need to devise like a baffle to let the air in but stop the noise as much as possible, any idea how to make that?
I also have to make and install a start/ stop remote controlled with for this thing, any idea about that?
I also need to modify a trash can and to make and install an alarm.
While I am at it I also want to move my air compressor in this space.
I sold my " total make over" HF dust collector yesterday.
