Cyclone separator

Post by T.Hadley on January 19th 2012, 12:09 am

I went and bought a bucket vac from Lowes for my blast cabinet, it works very well for a 20.00 vac, the only issue I have it the filter plugging up to fast, so I thought I would build me a Cyclone separator,

I watched a few vids on YOU TUBE, and then got to building the type I made is called a top hat design.

clogged filter.



Took some scrap I had laying around and made a circle cutter for my router.


The slot is where the debris will fall through.


Top and bottom




Got the tin put in.


A look inside


hose fittings installed


Started with a clean bucket.


as a test I vacuumed up all the saw dust from making it, it works awesome, all the saw dust was in the separator and only some fine dust was in the vac.
