Default Dust collection

Finished tuning up a Cyclone unit today:







Works just as well as the Dust Deputy, for a 1/3 of a price. Did require some hands-on though. Also, by sheer luck, my Stanley vac hose fits in perfectly. The triple gasket prevents any loss of suction, I’m quite happy with the result.

Now, for the questions:

What do you gents and ladies recommend for hoses ? Diameter, adjustments, material, manufacturer ? I plan on installing a series of T or Y connectors with blast gates, for at least 4-5 ends.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I used flex hose from Lee Valley to get from the machines to 4" galvanized ducting that are the main runs. The metal ducting is cheaper, smoother, and allowed me to ground them more easily.

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.

the LV hose is some upper class hose... good stuff..
I did the same as you excluding the sizes..
I also used saddles instead of fittings...
this allowed me to put a tap exactly where I wanted/needed a take off and I used longer sticks of pipe resulting in fewer joints which the longer sections reduced cost......
the saddles made for way easier changes and lowered the fitting count drastically...
also, I put the trunk line close to the floor...
this made for a way shorter runs which used less material which saved quite a bit of money as in a lot...
and the efficiency of the DC improved markedly...

Am I missing something or is this gasket supposed to go under the flange?

I put 3 gaskets there. 1 between the flange and the throat, 1 between the flange and the lid and the last one between the supporting plate and the lid. No loss of suction whatsoever.
