    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,


    Kevin.
