Looking great, Glenn!

Seeing the cyclone brought a question to mind. One of the industrial dust collectors at work has just a small collection "sump" at the bottom, with an automatic gate that opens between machine cycles to empty into a mobile bin below. No need to disconnect a sealed barrel or have a flexible link between the chute and barrel. The bin is already on a cart, just roll it away to dump at will. Anyone ever seen a similar setup in a hobby shop DC system?

No but that would be awesome!! The worst dust issue I have is jacking around getting the lid disconnected and taking the bag out.

May barrel uses pull catches.  I stretch the hose a bit between cyclone and barrel.  It retracts just enough to make sliding the barrel out from underneath not too painful.

My son in law dropped by so we put on all the floor and door trim.

The guy is a machine.  He has helped out a lot with this project.  I also took the older and discolored fittings I have had for years and gave them a squirt with the HVLP.  Zinsser makes a PVC friendly waterborne product.

Man this is awesome. Makes me want to tear my system apart to paint it. I hate the bright green sewer pipe look.

That's not bad for a commercial unit. The one at work has a pneumatic cylinder, operating a sliding gate. Of course, the blower on that one is 150hp, and the baghouse is bigger than my shop.

Let's keep it clean

Did you get any permitting grief about installing a sink in the shop?  When I built my shop, the county declined my permit because they were concerned that we would turn the building into a living space for rent.  I took the sink out of the plans.

One of the benefits of PVC is it being easy to change. Gluing it together would remove that advantage. I am using a vinyl tape made by 3M for irregular duct connections. It is very good at bridging the differences between the hub and pipe connection point diameters on this stuff.A6B8D19E-A940-4EEE-A444-66A2456EDD7E.thumb.jpeg.568ff4868ff4613dedffcaf16118005f.jpeg
