This is a super easy way to build a dust/wood chip collector for your shop. Basically, this uses two buckets, two feet of PVC, some clamps, and some scraps laying around in most garages or basements. Very minimal cutting is required to create the cyclone effect.
I've been surprised at just how well this works. It can greatly extend the life of your Shop Vac motor and at the same time keep the suction consistent rather than declining as the Shop Vac filter clogs.
The video shows the full build.

After the unit was built I made a small cart to hold the vac and collector. It has been an awesome addition to my small shop.
Thanks for taking a look.
