How Cyclones Work

I’m sure I briefly mentioned the emergence of a small company in the UK called Cyclone Central, who produce flat-packed CNC-machined cyclone kits that you can assemble yourself and fit directly in to your dust extraction system. If ever you’ve wondered how these kits go together or, exactly how a cyclone dust collection system works then, with the aid of one of their first customers, there’s now a video on YouTube that will tell you all you need to know, without going too far in to the science of it all:

I have no affiliation with either party here; I just thought the video would be of interest to other woodworkers. There are some web pages and other videos that delve in to great detail on the subject of dust extraction, which tends to almost over complicate things and can make it all difficult to follow.

Delivery within the UK and EU is a standard service. If you live outside of these boarders then, it may still be worth contacting them directly, as these kits are flat-packed, after all.

Thanks for reading.
