Cyclone Dust Collection Woodworking Plan

Woodworking Project Paper Plan to Build Cyclone Dust Collector
Downloadable Woodworking Project Plan to Build Cyclone Dust Collector
In designing and outfitting WOOD Magazine's Idea Shop with a cyclone dust collector, we had several objectives in mind. We wanted a space-efficient unit with minimal noise, dust-free construction, and convenience of use.
  • To meet those objectives we designed a unit using a 760 CFM, 1 1/2" horsepower, 62-82 decibel dust collector.
  • This size blower is more than adequate for a small shop.
We built the entire wood framework from one 4x8 sheet of 3/4" birch plywood. In addition the project requires:
  • One piece of 20x57-1/2" 30-gauge sheet metal for the cylinder
  • Another measuring 20x57-1/2" for the 3 cone segments
  • A third measuring 15-1/2x19" for the inlet.
  • We used a cartridge-type air-filter (rated 99.9% efficient) to minimize dust emission.
  • The total cost of our unit was right around $375 (including the blower) to build.
  • Add another $64 for the remote switch.
The dust collector we built is for a collector with a 760 CFM, 1.5 horsepower blower.
  • In the plan, we've included general information, but NOT the drawings or dimensions for using different blower sizes (1-3 H.P.), allowing you a CFM range from 350 to 1200.
  • This plan was built and proven in the WOOD magazine shop by its editors and master craftsmen.
