See there? How cool is THAT? You could disguise that and use it in a traditional room. What is it? It's a "floor sweep". Simply sweep the crap into the box and the dust collector sucks it up.

Cyclone Dust Collector and adding a baffle

Cyclone Dust Collector and adding a baffle

Hi All, new here but been lurking. I have a cyclone that I built (it is the one from Wood Issue 100). I have had it built for about 14 yrs and it worked great. It has not been in use for at least 11yrs (I built a new shop and just now getting to the full setup of the shop). I have a question on use of a baffle. I was going to add a cone baffle to the cyclone outlet pipe. Is this a good idea? Has anyone done this? Is it time to re-design the cyclone? Thank you in advance.

Woodworking Tip: Box Fan Filter  " I made a cheap air cleaner for dust in my shop by attaching a furnace filter to a box fan. I just set the fan on my workbench whenever I’m sanding. It works so well that I decided to make a more permanent air cleaner.    I mounted the fan overhead, attaching it to the floor joists in my shop, see drawing."

Common mistakes when designing dust collection.

Avoid common duct-design flaws

DO use the largest ductwork that fits your collector. Just because a tool comes with a 4" dust port doesn't mean you should use 4" main ducts or drops. Instead, look at the intake port sizes for the collectors you're considering. Most cyclones have intake ports of 6" to 8", and some two-bag collectors have 5"- or 6"-diameter intakes, so consider at least a 5" main duct. Tapered reducers, like the one below, change duct diameters with minimal static-pressure loss.
