Did this video help you?

kev mc: very good vid. just a tip .... you loose a lot of pressure in the flexible hose. if you use smooth wall pipe between the cyclone and the vac you will improve the efficiency.

Marla White: is there any plans on u dolly u made here Just got me the Dust Dupity and wanting to make a cart for it. I saw plans out there but u is the most compact one out there and u should make plans to sell out there for it

Testing Please Ignore Me: Officially out of my diy league.
Super cool though!

WickettMan: Thanks for the design and how to make the dust separator... Works fine!!

MRrwmac: Ron, it's been a few years now since the build and I was wondering how it has held up and performed?

DRitz78: I too thank you Ron for sharing.  This has just been put at the end of a long list of things I'd like to build.

washburn_ morning_wood: Really like the design of that cart!

nevermindthebollocks: I built a cyclone out of 24ga HVAC drive material. I used a electrical pvc 90's-45's and used 2" pvc pipe to hook between my vac and cyclone. The electrical 90's have a much larger radius than plumbing 90's do. 
My shop vac takes a 2-1/2 hose though. The shop vac hose without ends on it will fit right into a regular 2" pvc coupler. Handy.

nathan redding: Thanks Ron, the best video by far on DYI cyclone build. Making it from wood makes it so much more easier on the eyes than the ridiculously expensive plastic ones out there. Happy woodworking!- Nate

Rusty Case: google search for 'elutriation chamber'. That will get you on the way to a solution. They are sometimes used in Au recovery from slurry. rc

Full Wave Rectifier: Awesome ideas!

astrialkil: you should use a $1 mop handle from the dollar store and a length of garden hose to replace the pull handle, who wants to bend over to grab a little string.

Ronald Walters: No dimensions given for the cart. I am just giving you the idea. There are way too many different brands, sizes and models and configurations of shop vacuums to cover the possibilities. Thanks for watching!

Ronald Walters: This ShopVac originally came with this size hose. If it had come with a larger original hose I would have used it. With the clean cartridge filter and clean filter bag the airflow through the ShopVac while using the cyclone remains consistently high and the motor remains cool. Performance far exceeds anything previously experienced with the always clogged pleated cartridge filter. Thanks for watching!

Keith Knostman: This is a nice looking project. I think I'll give it a go. Great job. I will make one observation. You really should retain the 2 inch hose side from the vac to the collector/separator. The 1 inch hose is going to add unnecessary restriction and will reduce the life of the vac as well as reducing performance.

Peter Smith: Hi Ronald and thanks for the great videos I made my own Cyclone separator after watching your videos. It works well but a very loud whistling noise is coming from the end of the hose. Do you have any ideas how i can stop this

vincent7520: Perfect tutorial. Thumbs up ! up ! up ! … ;) Thank you for posting.

Shannariano: I believe she asked if a cyclone could be used to separate a water feed from its solid residues. No air involved. I can answer with my accademic knowledge saying that cyclones are best for gas-particles removal (given the difference in density) but in the oil industry cyclones are used to clean service water from sand. You need though high flows and speed and I doubt you could construct one of such cyclones out of wood. Cheers :)

Ronald Walters: If that doesn't answer your question just ask me again.

Ronald Walters: A dust collector will separate air from the water. The particles will follow the path of the water. Larger Wet or Dry ShopVac’s have a garden hose connection at the bottom of the canister. One without a pump would be best. Elevate the ShopVac and the water with particles can flow into another container. Assuming the particles are heavier than water, they can settle to the bottom and the water decanted off the top. Or try Google CENTRIFUGAL WATER PARTICLE SEPARATOR (i.e. water sand separator).

MidLifeBiker: Hi Manny, thanks for your comment. I was going to get the ardent rear too but it wasnt in stock. The highroller is a heavy tyre but its very robust and the wear is minimal. The bike does get a lot of positive attention. The hubs are huge and the rear is loud so everyone knows when i arrive. I have got a bit of creak which may be dust in the BB but not emough for me to strip and regrease yet. Its a fast bike seems best when riding aggressive. I have had some pretty hard crashes, currenty injured, but the bike has taken it all. The quality of build is top draw! Do you have any vids up? Cheers W

"Oh really? Does it make the game more fun?"
"It makes it harder and more tedious! That's fun, right?"

Zac Tolan: This is funny. I have the same one except it goes on a key chain.
Don't Tread On Me: Use the copper dish scrubbing pads they have to be the ones that are solid copper strands not copper coated stainless steel wrap it around your cleaning brush they take lead out like nothing
