In this video I will show you how to make your own cyclone dust collector for your shop vacuum. This will be installed in between your vacuum and tool. All debris & dust will be sucked into the dust collector and not go into the vacuum cleaner. It will keep your shop vacuum cleaner filter element clean and not clog it.

For this project, the middle PVC pipe installed in the dust collector lid is 1.25". The PVC pipe installed on the side into the bucket is 1.5". These sizes are what I found to work for my setup between tools/shop vac/hose. Your setup may have different pipe sizes.

There are many different pipe diameter sizes found between different brands and tools. For example, many vacuum attachments such as brushes, hand sanders have a diameter of 1.25". Table saw may have pipe diameter 1 7/8". Some shop vac has 2.5" pipe.

You will need to figure out what are all the pipe sizes you have, and then get the proper PVC pipe to get everything integrated. If you can't find the right PVC pipe, then you can also use some expansion rubber hose and clamps to hold pieces together.
