    Nice! How about some details? Where did you get the bottles? How did you attach them? How did you know how long to cut them? There appears to be two stages, how do they work?

    BTW, why the porn music?

    i search the internet and found a couple dust collectors like this one:


    but all much too big.... but they all looks like a bottle.... so I look for a bottle that looks like the big dust collector....

    and i found (in the netherlands) a bottle from Barleduc water that look the most .....

    in the bottles is a line 2 cm from the bottem, and i all cut them there....

    the bucket is from a eat store (also for free)

    i make a drawing and i try to explain how it works...(but I'm not so good in english... so it is not easy..)



    the brown parts are MDF. Green is de dirty air... purple is de clean air flow...
    on top is a old motor from a vacuumcleaner...

    and in al the bottles i make this.... :


    i hope i explain it better this time.... and the music... yes.. its in pinnecal video 11.... and it had dust in the title....

    to make the helix(?) I did make something on my cnc machine...

    What is the helix and the tube in the middle from?
    How did you attach the parts? Glue? Heat?

    Thanks very cool. Looks like a Dyson vacuum cleaner.

    Very nice Swets. Greta idea on using the bottles.

    I notice your fan exhaust is to the room. Do you plan on putting on some kind of filter?

    I have the mini cyclone from Clear Vue and use a shop vac for the suction. Not much makes it to the shop vac but what does is very, very fine dust similar to finely ground flour when you touch it. I plan on putting a Hepa (sp) filter in the shop vac.

    Swets,
    Thanks for the reply. I may try one of these as well. What size is the plexiglass? I may use a fluorescent light safety tube. They are about 1.5" or 38mm. (Did you make the helix of the plexiglass material) or is part of another bottle? )(Edit: I see that now) I think I could cut a bottle and unroll it and cut the helix from that, or buy a sheet of polycarbonate or PETG material.
    You could connect a filter just to the exhaust side of the vacuum pump just to catch the fines that may still be in the air.

    Swets, cool project, very ingenious!

    The plexi was heat formed over the wooden bucks to make the helix. I need to fool with heat formed plastic more. First Hoss did stepper covers and now this. Seems to be a lot of potential there.

    Best,

    BW
