  • Cyclone Seperator for single stage DC units

    I found this cyclone separator for single stage dust collectors. It mounts on top of a 30 Gal. trash can. It is not one of those plastic lids which Woodcraft, Rockler, and Grizzly sell (among others no doubt), but looks to be a real cyclone. They have a 4" and a 6" model available both for the same price of $179.

    Nice find, Bob! Are you going to get one? I think that there would be a broad interest in seeing how you like it. I've never dealt with one and can't understand how you get the can attached to the cyclone which would have to be held fast for support. It seems taht there would have to be a little play to get this together.

      No, I am not thinking of getting one. I have one of those cheap plastic separator lids on a 30 Gal can in front of my single stage DC. Works well enough and much less expensive (by about $150) than this cyclone. Their web site suggests it be secured from tipping and to the can and because of its weight.
