Did this video help you?

telosfd: Nice project. I need a bucket with basin in similar dimensions and a cover according diameter of the basin. I Need a lot of luck.

Van Tucker: Cool idea. Good design and fit. Great job, I will use this concept when I build my next shop

Strannik726: Молодец! Дёшево и сердито.

keiros`edisson: Muy bueno gracias por subir este vídeo. me oriento en como construirlo. voy hacerme uno parecido a este.

vincent7520: 06:52 = Again ?!!

ΠΑΝΑΓΙΩΤΗΣ ΔΗΜΗΤΡΙΑΔΗΣ: RESPECT !!!! amazingly !!!! How many watts is the vacuum cleaner? I have a vacuum cleaner at 2100 watts Thank's for your time. Happy new year !!! Panos from Greece.

ItSeemsDark: Yeah , milele it's made in italy .. we make it better :D :D

cattey isaboar: it would have been interesting to see how much dust got past.

MEGAONE302: You're invention really sucks... yay Good job Sir.

PENFOLD CARPER: We have a MIELE vacume cleaner, its incredable, it sucks sheepskin rugs up off the floor and even tries the same with the wool carpets A PROPER VACUME FOR SURE. We've had it a little over 8 years and its like brand new still :) We also have other things made by MIELE and they are perfect too. THANKS FOR SHARING MATE........... BIG THUMBS UP for me

anzyi1: you must love vacuuming that floor;)

Dan Baker: Clearly, you're one of those guys that can make a space shuttle from some popsicle sticks, recycled aluminum foil, and $25 billion dollars under budget. Awesome job sir. Thanks for posting!

johvdz: Haha, thanks Dan, that's very kind of you to say :-) Much appreciated!

moailine: Hahaha... a great construction...:)

CarWash81: Very good design and it works! Miele is almost too good to be used in garage. I own 10 years old Miele vacuum cleaner and I am very impressed quality of it.

Marcel Lenormand: Very simple and effective. Good job. Mind you, it's gonna take you forever to clean up if you keep tipping the dirt back out onto the carpet like that! ;P

johvdz: Thanks Reinaldo, your cyclone separator looks great as well, and if I hadn't come accross Phil Thien's design I would have tried to build one very similar to yours! (after some consideration I liked the 'low profile' Thien baffle idea more than the 'high profile' cyclone concept)

johvdz: Thanks very much for your kind words, crumblenaut, much appreciated!

johvdz: Hi Ted, thanks! I don't have a table saw, I'm just a 'small time' DIY-er, with very limited tools, and just tried to make a quick small/easy/cheap version of the design to lessen the burden on my vacuum cleaner. For more advanced info and possibilities I advise you to visit the forum on Phil Thien's website (link in the description box), there's a wealth of information there about bigger, more 'shop-like' solutions/variations of the design, including 2.5" to 5"+ diameter ports/hoses.

johvdz: Thanks Mikko, yep, I'm also very impressed with Miele vac cleaners, they're afordable and working just great, I recently bought a newer model with fine dust hepa filter, and I now use that with the Thien cyclone separator in my little 'workshop attic'. The old vac cleaner from this video is now used for general house cleaning duties :-)

gamingSlasher: Very impressive. Good work.

P. J. Cravino: I have a similar one that I have built with a paint can (20 L) and I made the 'hat' from hard cardboard, reinforced with some wood sticks and other wood sticks as separators between the actual lid of the bucket and the inner part of the 'hat' The other parts are pretty much the same as the ones you use. It really works well. The only issue I got is the bucket walls collapsing in when the pressure goes higher (you let the hose tip get stuck on something). Thanks for sharing.

johvdz: Hi Steve, thank you thank you, I'm glad you find my cheap/small/easy implementation of Phil Thien's design so totally MacGyver, haha <:-D I'm still using it very regularly on my nasty flint/glass knapping shards/dust and it still works like a charm and it still keeps my little workshop attic clean. Hope you'll be as happy with your version as I am with mine :-)

johvdz: Glad you liked it, thanks for the praise :-)

Ted Moyer: Amazing, amazing job. Thank You for making it so easy! Have you tried this with a table saw? My table saw has a 2.5" dust port I have hooked straight to my shop vac.

Lute Scrat: nice

Steve Payne: Have to also add that this is the simplest, least complicated build I've found so far. You have the heart of an engineer. *One who can build for a shilling what any damn fool can build for a pound. Congratulations again.

Matt W: Hi Dan. Nice video and nice design. Just one question though - Why have you only cut the holes around half of the orange bucket and not all the way around?

johvdz: Organic Shapes - Where the circle begins (jamendo.com) .jamendo.com/en/track/831878/where-the-circle-begins

stranno strannovasrr: I have copied this rig and clean my pellet stove with it as a kind of in between vacuum cleaner. I first fill the put bucket with a little water so the ash doesn't stay in the air. The filter in my vacuum cleaner doesn't clog anymore. Less then 1/2 tea spoon reaches the vac. I am very happy with it. Thanks johvdz.

johvdz: Dank je Toine, en succes ermee! :-)

Steve Payne: You rock. You totally MacGuyver'ed that. I have been looking for a mechanism for a cheap one of these and you completely nailed it. I have looked at about 30 DIY 'cheap' filters, but you have killed all of them. Champion effort. Well done.

alpenglow123: Who does the music?

Jake Smith: That's a great improvised version. Thanks for the thorough demonstration!

crumblenaut: Best, cheapest cyclone on Youtube! Thanks for posting this GREAT video.

johvdz: Vielen Dank, Günther :-)

kamaroway günther: einfach cool ja

johvdz: In Phil's original design the slot (in the wooden baffle) was about 270° of the full 360° 'circumference', he found that 270° was giving optimum results (he explained that somewhere on his site, where he talks about the design). I tried to 'eyeball' that 270° slot here, but it seems to be a bit less than that. It works nontheless quite perfect :-)

johvdz: Thank you, Moa :-)

Reinaldo Pelegrina: hey, better than mine, congratulations!
