Well, it's taking me forever to get this far...but I'm getting close to having working power tools in my shop. I got my DC assembled and installed, next is to complete the ductwork....which is a little like doing a jigsaw puzzle. The pile of parts is what happens with a system that's mostly over 20 years old and getting installed in it's third shop. I did put enough ducting on the DC to test run it and make sure everything is working. But that piping is so dirty (it's been sitting in a machine shed for over a year) I need to wash some of it off just so I can handle it. Slowly but surely I'll get there.
In rebuilding my shop after move, I intended to build a Thien baffle for my Rigid shopvac. Part of it is the function (preserve the good VF6000 filter I put in the vac, and also slightly easier to empty/swap buckets that empty the vac)... but part of it is the intangible joy of the build and pushing the limits of it's effectiveness. Then I stumbled into this cyclone for $16. I don't know how effective it is, and I'm never thrilled about ordering from China... but at that price it's very hard to justify building my own Thien baffle until all my other shop wannabuilds are done. Has anyone tried this, or other clone cyclones? All opinions welcome.
