Looks great Mike. I wasn't as smart as you and Irfan so I bought a cyclone. The filters they sent me were intake filters from a tractor trailer. They seem to work well. The other alternative is to exhaust the unfiltered air to the outside. Unfortunately, if you are working in a heated space, all of your heated air will be sent outdoors. If you recycle the filtered air in your workshop, you get to keep the heated air.

Good luck with your build.

You guys are doing a nice job on building your cyclone.

I am very pleased with the modification I have made to my Harbour Freight dust collector. It isn't a cyclone but it works like one and I don't notice any dust.

You might look at these filters:

I replaced the cloth bag with one of these filters and it is doing a great job.

I seem to remember that the ClearVue that is similar to the one you are building uses two filters with 300 sq ft of filter material each.

I don't know if you can get material you could pleat to make the filters yourself. Some information is found at Wynn Environmental, filter model 9L300BL is what they use.

The really fine material is what is really dangerous, so you need something that will filter .3 micron or better.

It would be great if we could all use systems lile your with really good filters like these.
If those filters are not possible, see if you can get masks with particulate filters that are like that (in the USA they are rated as P100). Again it is focusing at the really fine material.

I hope this helps. ... It would be great to keep all the MechMate users safe world wide, in a less expensive manner.

Jack,

I am using the 9E110SB Filter that is made of spun material and can be washed. It is more expensive but I will never have to buy another filter or bag again.

Today was so difficult - I just about managed to finish mounting the motor rock steady to the wall - doing it up above was very difficult. I have to thank my Dad who helped me to get it up there - I did not take pics as it was late for friday's prayers. Anyways its done and I will start it up tomorrow and probably finish the cyclone work tomorrow - I still need some 6" PVC pipe and the 4" flexible hose , I also have got the bag filters for which clamps were made today.

ah that's some high expenditures on that flex hose

Have a great weekend everybody!

Ah : running the blower a couple of times has made it to loosen the anchor bolts from the wall - I think I need to put on the thru the wall bolts.

a near disaster was averted when the blower started making wierd noise and I went over to chk it and the frame holding the motor was all out - away from the wall!

I have to do thank you prayer to Allah!

Glad you are still with us Irfan!
Use some M10 threaded rod and 50mm sq plates bolted 'thro' the wall. That should hold it.

In addition to the through-bolts at the top (bottom doesn't need them), I suggest adding either
- a pair of diagonal stay bars (yellow), or
- 2 rectangles of MDF (red)
