Here are a couple pics of my new dust collector.
I'd been looking for a small cyclone for months on ebay. After Bill Pentz's scathing criticism of pretty much all the consumer level small cyclones, I'd decided I wanted a Torit, but the prices even for used ones which had fallen over several times and been badly repainted in ugly colors just weren't making sense.
So, when I saw this one on the local Craigslist for $300, I pounced on it. I figure I bought the 2 horse Baldor motor and Allen-Bradley starter and got the sheet metal, angle iron and bag for free. It's a model 19.
The bag looks pretty decent, so I guess I'll run that until I get a HEPA cartrige filter solution engineered. Torit rates the bare cyclone at 90% efficient for 1 micron particles.
There's another one just like this, same price. You can email Brian Naslund at firstname.lastname@example.org. It's in the Minneapolis area, not sure if he'll crate and ship.
Back to work...
