If so how do you like it?

You tube video showing use.

Of course advertisings job is to make everything look wonderful, but this certainly seems to have a good price point, a metal can versus a soon to be rotted paper tub, and how much simpler could it be. I like that the full window is ready and waiting for you. Plus it seems like it’s pointing the right direction.

Wondering if real life is as good as the movies?

Limited to 4 inch, looks like a lot of drop. Maybe a hint that “real” cyclones are very large with long funnels.

The way to not have a lot of drop on your canister DC is for a cyclone that removes fines better. This little baby looks like it may separate out big stuff but the fines will go through. Just my guess. Cool if it did actually work.

I don’t have one. It looks great. I have a Rikon 1hp dust collector I put out side and pass the 4” hose through the shop cat door. It’s a dog and I have to open up the zipper on the bag and let the dust fly in my back yard to get some suction.

Hope you don’t mind that I’m a little off you subject.
