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.

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.

I've got to say that I'm really disappointed in the lack of numbers of members participating in this projects. Call me stupid, but I put a lot off time into it and am very proud of what I've done, which in my opinion was to simply produce a very affordable 2 stage Dust Collector. But the lack of responses here is very discouraging.

Was there a how to share somewhere we missed? I did not see anything on how to do this.

Nice dc looks way better then my sad  little shop vac and dust deputy. I do find it funny that people complain about a cyclone system filling up just as fast as running it without one. It’s not meant to slow down how often you empty it just separates it so that the air that exits is hopefully cleaner. 

 

I need to look into a 1hp or 1 1/2 someday.  I put enough junk into my body as it is. I don’t need anymore help from the dust.

 

Your little separator has a ton of potential uses. Are you running 4inch or 2 inch fittings? At 5 gallons that’s a lot of pressure behind it either way. It would be interesting to see how those numbers would play out. How to test that is beyond me. I still belong in that newbie for newbies group. But the designs looks built to handle it.

Nods that’s what I though.  I need to replace the plastic bucket on mine soon it’s starting to wear thin

Your Dust Deputy does a fine job.  I love mine.  I have a 2HP dust collector from HF and added the Super Dust Deputy to it.  Works well as designed.

Maybe this link will help you Get Started

Charlie I already know about dust and volumes. I do not plan on redoing my whole system as it is a 4 inch PVC thru the whole shop. I had a homemade cyclone box from a Shopnotes plan.

It helped a lot and my 2.5 HP DC is in the attic so have to occasionally have to haul the bag up there out. Now the worst part is to remove the canister filter and take outside to give a through cleaning , maybe every 8 years. So to help avoid that I got the dust deputy that Dan showed and have a 5 inch line from DC to Dust Deputy (adapted the 6 inch on DD to 5) with the 5 inch DD in adapted to the 4 inch input from old box.

So what my question was how did you build yours ? I have more pictures of mine if you want .
