    Dan, thank you for this tutorial.  Once I figured it out, it is almost simple except for the 2 processes.  The most complicated thing to me is the math and measurements.  
     
    One point if I may, is to ensure that all 4 pieces are as close to the same size as possible.  If they are not, you may have varying widths of cross and bar.  I did not see it in this thread, but in another you pointed out how to number the ends and mark the inside corners so you know when you have them turned correctly for both turnings.  Thank you again, Dan.  I owe you big time.

    Very true, for me it comes down to working with what I have verses what I cannot afford.

    Jack, you may have to measure it to see the difference, but it exists. I could actually see the amperage draw on mine drop as I sealed the joints. Another reason is to eliminate the annoying "whistle" that sometimes happen when a joint leaks. All this depends, to some degree on the system. Larger ducting, longer runs, and huge airflow, benefit more from the sealing.

    One of the magazines did a comparison (I think it was Wood, or maybe FWW) a few years back on separators and cyclones, and they rated the Thein very highly....preferring it to some of the store bought options (IIRC).

    No hands on experience, but I've read a lot of posts from folks who have one and absolutely love it.

    I've never had much luck with fabric duct tape, seems to me like it always started peeling off after a year or 2 (on PVC). The foil tape seems to stay on forever. Another ereason to seal the joints (IMHO) is to eliminate the annoying whistle that they sometimes make when they leak.
