Default Cyclone Separator for shop vac

If any of you are looking for a cyclone separator for your shop vac, here is an inexpensive one that works really well. I don't have any personal interest in promoting this guy's product, but I did buy one from him and am very happy with it. It's quite small, but works well in front of my Rigid shop vac. All the dust and swarf gets trapped by the separator and the filter in the shop vac stays clean for a lot longer. If you've ever looked at cyclone separators, it's a helluva bargain at $87 + shipping.

I mounted mine on a plywood disk, with a circular groove cut with a router, that fits over a 5 gallon bucket, like the picture on eBay. To empty the bucket, I just lift off the separator and dump the bucket into a the trash can.

BW,

When you get yours, I'd like to have a full report! I have been thinking about an idea like this for a while, but a little different than this product. I will likely just buy one myself when the time comes.
