A cyclone dust collector was constructed which works in conjunction with my vacuum cleaner. The purpose of the collector is to trap debris before it can reach the vacuum cleaner. Particles are swirled at high speed and ultimately fall to the bottom where they are collected.
The principles are the same as those used in vacuum units of some woodworking shops.
The size of my dust collector was scaled to match my vacuum cleaner and by the materials that were readily available. Of course, other sizes could be made.
