You should be, nice clean design. How hard is it to pull the drum to empty it?

Thankyou Fred. It's pretty quick and easy to empty, just losein a radiator clamp on the top of the drum, and the inlet hose, remove drum from DC, then simply unclamp the ring at the top of the drum to remove the lid. The whole process is about equal to what it takes to empty a cyclone.

I also make a similar separator that is 5 gal in size, I use it on a small sandblasting cabinet. Keeps the air inside the blaster cleaner so I can see what I'm blasting inside the cabinet.

Very pretty pieces Charlie, far above par work, as always.

Any pictures of the separator details?  Is that a metal can?  Did you weld the side extension piece on?  What is the orientation of the separator internals?

@CharlieL,

I received the following in an email but did not see this in the post so I cut and pasted it here. 

My apologies if my post appeared to be asking for free details.  I have the same Dust Collector and several years ago I made the Thien pre-separator using a 20 gallon trash can.  It has worked very well.  I was merely curious when you posted your pictures.  Again, my apologies for not being more explicit about the reason for my post.

It is a metal can. I do not give out free details on how to build things that I came up with. I like to think that my skills and time are worth something.

It wasn't I who removed the post. That was nice of you Jim to clear that up and apologize, thankyou. It's also nice, and I'm glad that you understand, I can and usually do put a lot more time into projects then some people may be able to imagine or realize. For instance the 5 gallon separator that I also show in this thread I'm very happy with it, but yet someday I'd like to redo the lid just to make emptying the seperator just a little simpler, much like the one used with the dust collector, and that will involve practically starting over with another steel container. The dust collection hoods that I also make from sheet metal and for a couple machines I also have a lot of time into getting them as good and efficient as I can. In a nut shell, Made with pride in the USA.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
