HomeMade Cyclone

From Shopbot Wiki

"Better Homes & Gardens WOOD" magazine had plans for one that uses a 1-1/2 hp Penn State impeller. It may be a bit small for some shops, but I'm sure that the plans could be scaled up. I didn't use the large filter, but instead used the fabric dust bag that came with the portable Penn State unit I had. The only problem is that the fine flour needs to be shook out of the bag from time to time to maintain good flow. Instead of a small garbage can like in the plans, I used a 55 gallon plastic drum. The article is in Issue #100 from Nov 1997.
