I have a Jet DC 1100 collector with 6" inlet. I currently have a 30 gallon metal trashcan with a cyclonic trashcan lid I got at Woodcraft a few years ago. The shop uses 4" flexible hose to the mostly non moving dust collector.
My question is about upgrading my cyclone to the Onieda Super Cyclone. There is a model with 6" to the DC and 5" to the inlet. They have a 4" model both for inlet and outlet and a 15 gallon dust bucket. There are a few other models with variations on inlet and outlet, plastic or metal. I read reviews on Amazon that are about 60% 5 star with a lot of 1, 2 and 3 star ratings. Do you have any experience with the Onieda Super Cyclone as an add on to a single stage dust collector?
If I were to buy a new dust collector I would buy one that integrates the cyclonic function into the dust collector. However I already have the DC1100 and may be wasting money by starting over. My DC 1100 is a good machine with the canister filter. I already have a remote control and think the 1100 CFM is adequate for my shop.
If I upgrade to the Onieda Super cyclone should I get a larger one with 6" outlet even though I use 4" collection hose or should I just get the 4" one and skip all the reducers.
Does anyone have a different suggestion for upgrading my current setup besides the Onieda?
I use the dust collector all the time for a 3HP Powermatic 10" saw, a 16 Inch SCM bandsaw, Dewalt 735 Planer, router tables, Jet 16/32 Drum Sander and of course for my Shapeoko XXL. So any suggestions would be helpful.
