    Looked at all the reviews and retail stores and decided on this one. I bought a new metal trash can and hooked it up to my Jet DC 1100 dust collector. Working great so far I wish I had bought thi sooner.

    Comments about Trash Can Cyclone Lid :

    This product works as advertised, separates the chips/dust before it hits the dc. I read that some are using a plastic garbage can, in my experience, a powerful dc will suck and collapes the can, use a standard 30gal metal can. My only problems are the elbow coming loose and when pulling my hose, my empty can will fall over. These will be simple fixes once I get aroundtoit

    Comments about Trash Can Cyclone Lid :

    Take a "standard" plastic, 35 gallon trash can with a domed lid and cut most of the dome off, leaving about an inch above the lid rim. The cyclone lid will fit perfectly onto the rim and can be held in place with silicone. The inch left above the rim hits the gasket inside, and a bead of silicone there adds to the strength. Of course, the lid rim fits the trash can perfectly and remains secure and easily removable.

    Comments about Trash Can Cyclone Lid :

    I have a stationary mounted small dust collector and this makes it real easy to empty the large dust chips out without having to empty the bag very much! I have it mounted on top of a 31 gallon metal trash can and the only problem I have found is that it does not sit tightly when it is not being used, while in its operation it gets sucked down tightly and the foam seal helps seal in the suction. A couple of strips of duct tape keeps the lid in position until the suction clamps it down!

    Low Cost Solution For Hobbiest

    Comments about Trash Can Cyclone Lid :

    Single stage dust collector was plugging up when jointing wide boards, this product completely eliminated that issue. Also only the finest dust makes it to the dust bag on the collector and I rarely have to change it any more. My only issue is that when used with DeWalt 735 planer the cyclone lid lifts just enough to blow chips out. Solution: put something heavy on the lid.

    The connections could be better but the overall design is an improvement over the old kind with just holes to stick the hose in.

    Fits standard garbage cans and does the job on my 3/4 Hp wall mounted vacuum system servicing a table saw and joiner. A new metal can plus this adapter will set you back about $50 though. I have it installed on a standard 30 gallon can with the 90 degree internal elbow installed per instructions (to create a cyclone effect).

    Comments about Trash Can Cyclone Lid :

    The only problem found was that the elbow on the intake inside of the cyclone lid would at times fall off - simple solution was a small screw through the elbow at the point of where it slides onto the cyclone lid - problem solved!

    Comments about Trash Can Cyclone Lid :

    I am happily surprised how great this works with a 1.5HP Delta dust collector. I wish I had done it years ago! When I got a DeWalt 735 planer, I started filling up the lower bag of my dust collector very fast... I added this and very little makes it in there now, even when planing 1/32" and making pretty fine dust! Finding the right trash can is critical... The common 20 gallon plastic trash cans can fit but I think would be too short. The 35 gallon ones are too big. Fortuately I found a 31 gallon metal can with a 20.75" outside diameter which fit perfect! The lid stays on without needing a bungee cord or anything. The suction of the dust collector alone keeps it on tight... I love it! Now I haven't filled the can half way yet, but at some point it will get full enough that chips/dust will start getting sucked out, but it is SO much easier to empty than the bag on my duct collector that I think I will be doing it a lot more frequently, so don't expect that to be an issue.

    The top works well with reduced 2-1/2" hoses and a shop vac. It needs a heavy duty trash can, which can be hard to find.
