Here is very nice project for making a Cyclone Separator to use at your vacuum cleaner in addition with the paper bag or not, I can separate the dust from other meterial that vacuum sniff and separate other materiel to a rounded case and the dust pass through the paper bag. With this smart way you will have the paper bag in your vaccum for years!!
i have for the base a rounded wood diameter 15.24 cm.The upper side of wood is 7.6cm. I will need one more rouned wood with diammeter 12.7 cm with a drill in the middle 8.9cm .All these are in these photos
I have around 40 sticks length 30 cm. The down side of the stick is 1.3cm and the upper side is 0.7 cm .
I start sticking them as at the photo below. I stick with a warm silicone or wood stick
i stick another one to opposite side
Now i will place the upper wood with the middle in the center. The rounded wood in the middle is just for holding
And here i start sticking one by one and side by side all the sticks trying to avoid small holes
As you can see here, there small holes
There is no problem for the holes, i am going to cover those holes with hot silicone sticks with my hotgun or wood glue
As you can see here ,holes are closed. Now,i want to taper the inside so that to be glaceed .I will sanded smooth the inside edges
And we have made this
Next step is to glue two pieces of pvc. These are 18 cm length and 3.8 cm diameter
I stick one at the bottom ag the structure
and the other one at side, as the photo
I will use a round plastic box of color painting for dust collector
I stuck the small side of the structure to wooden lid of the round plastic box
