It is always something
Mini Dust Collection Separator
I have bought several of this type of Dust Collector over the years,they all work good, but you would think that they would make it the correct size for the normal shop vac hose or supply an adaptor to fit most hoses.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great, once you get the hoses attached
My primary use for my shop vac is to clean up around my wood lathe. The separator worked exactly like it is supposed to. That is, after I got the hoses connected to it. I took the advise of another reviewer and got a couple of 2" no hub connectors from the plumbing department and they worked perfectly.
I would not buy this product again
Simi Valley, CA
Purchased the unit few months ago. I have had a very difficult time finding hoses that match the unit. I have a shop vac and the hose can not fit this product, even though the site notes it will fit 2.5" hoses. The Store is proposing I should jerry rig something to make it work or buy $8 fittings so the hoses would work!!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Total Waste of Time and Money
Normal shop vac hoses don't fit, had to buy two hubless adapters, $10.00 to make it fit the hoses. Then I started using it with my Ridgid 6 hp shop vac. It did not catch anything, all dust and debris continued on into the shop vac and started to clog the vac's filter. I bought to use with my chop saw and my table saw and general shop cleaning. It does not meet my expectations in any way. I built a rack to attach it to my shop vac for easier maneuverability, wast of time and materials. Bad Product.
serves my purpose
The product worked as I expected by removing large items from the vacuum stream.
I had to find adapters to attach the hoses which added expense and time.
Needed to change the design a little
I purchased this product so i can put it inline between my wood working tools and my 12 gallon shop vac. After my first use, I open the 5 gallon bucket only to find it has been completely sucked cleaned by the shop vac. I tweaked it a little by dropping a 2.5" dust collection hose to the bottom of the bucket and filling water above the pipe line. It has essentially became a water trap and besides cleaning a messy 5 gallon bucket, the shop vac has very minimal dust.
It works fine - you just need to get the right size hoses to fit it. The standard hoses on my Shop Vac didn't fit it. But after I got the right hoses it worked fine.
works like expected
use for the miter saw and the table saw
I make rustic picture frames, this makes it so much easier, small and compact for I am limited on space
Works good, but ...
I have a Fein vacuum which I bought for its low noise. It is 2-1/4" diameter, so Duct Tape is a must for connections. The clear flexible hose I ordered is difficult to install, but eventually goes on and holds tight. The main problem is that the 9ft clear hose accordions to 3ft under suction from small nozzles and resists stretching. Use another type if that is a problem.
