View Full Version : Cyclone Chip/Dust Extractor for under 20!

10-10-2015, 10:51 AM
Hi guys,

I had a go at making a cyclone dust extractor.

I used;

1 Old broken hoover I had in the attic. Dump nothing!
1 Traffic cone I acquired one drunken night way back..!
2 Plasterer's buckets I bought for this job - 14.
2 Flangey plastic screw-on fixture thingys from the same shop - 3.
2 Plastic spring-clamps.
1 Shampoo bottle.
Lots of Duct tape.

It works a treat.

I managed to bodge all of the hoover attachment bits out sawing up of the old hoover

tube bits. I even got the the angled bit off it!

The best bit is how the traffic cone just sticks to the bucket! I just jammed it up

in there and it worked! If it ain't broke...!

I am very happy with how it works. It gets 90% of the chips and dust. I have filled

the bottom bucket 3 or 4 times now and the hoover bag isn't even half filled!

I'm open to suggestions for improvements!

Thanks guys,
