Introduction: Homemade Dust Separator (video)

I've been accumulating a lot of sawdust lately with several house projects and a few "fun" projects. My poor shop vac has been taking a beating and the filter has definitely seen better days. I decided to scrounge up some materials that I already had and try my hand at making a dust seperator. I shot a video demonstrating how it was put together and how effective it is in keeping the filter from getting clogged. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Nice! Thanks for sharing this. I made one of these a while ago, and it's been an excellent addition to my shop. Everybody needs one!
