Cyclone Dust Seperator

Built this in an attempt to cut down on how often I have to clean the filter in my shop vac when working on wood projects. This doesn't keep all the dust out of the filter but it allows me to go much longer between needing to blow out the filter and really cuts down on the dust being blown around the shop.

  • Very impressive addition to your shop!

  • Nicely done! The quality of your build really shows,and the see through design is super cool.  I'm curious how you formed the clear container?

    • Hi grover959,  there are two circles at the top and bottom of the clear container.  I rolled the poly-carbonate into a roll small enough to fit into the circle then slide the circles down to each end where there are screws about an inch apart driven into the circles.  Marius Hornberger on YouTube has a great video showing a very similar cyclone,
