Default Dust Collector Filters



In my previous shop I made a filter set up for my cyclone Dust Collector. I built a lean-to shed on the side of my shop and put the Dust collector and filters in it to minimize the noise in the shop. This thread shows how I made a filter hook up. First I bought a couple of filters from Wynn Industries, recommended by Bill Pence.

Then I used plywood to build the boxes for the filters.

This has been on my list of priorities for a while. My DC is inside my shop and only has the regular cloth bag. It collects chips and sawdust but the fine dust it mostly just redistributes.

How much were those Wynn filters Herb?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

It ran for the two about $130. They have a lot of different configuratios and sizes.

I forgot to mention that I ran a piece of 1/2" all thread and a hand knob on each end down thru the filters and boxes to clamp the whole thing together. Makes for fast disassembly too.

Also added a vac port in the side so I could blow back thru the filters to clean them and loosen the hand knobs to turn them as I blew back awhile the vacuum cleaner removed any dust accumulation.

The ply wood was 1/2" MDO with the coated side inside the boxes, this gave it a nice hard surface for the air to travel, and esay cleaning.

Lean to outside sounds like a good idea. Going to take that on.

Nice job Herb. I got to take dust collection more seriously, even though I'm a casual woodworker.

Nice job. Nice to see someone taking their health into account when woodworking.

How far down do they filter to?


Just remember what my father always said, " Half the people in this world are below average!", and everything in life will make a hellova lot more sense.

If I remember they were 5 micron filters.

Nice job . . . but as a side bar - if you have a "climate controled shop" you would be sucking all your heat or air-conditioning into the lean to . . . you might want to seal it up the best you can and vent the air back into the shop . . . otherwise you will be changing the humidity and temperature every 5 minutes . . .
