Download this woodworking project plan and build your own 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 1/2in. 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 3/4in. birch plywood. In addition the project requires:

  • One piece of 20x57-1/2in. 30-gauge sheet metal for the cylinder
  • Another measuring 20x57-1/2in. for the 3 cone segments
  • A third measuring 15-1/2x19in. 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.

  • This is a downloadable plan. Instructions given to download after checkout.

    Although I had problems re: download, the plans for the collector finally came through with the great help from Woodcraft's help center. The lady who manned the phone was very, very helpful. I am more than satisfied with the downloaded plan.
