[QUOTE=P89DC;2043967]I like your build, nice work! Your vertical build's footprint doesn't look much smaller than my horizontal build's footprint. I prefer the stability of the horizontal build esp when I roll it out to the driveway to vacuum my truck interior.
Footprint looks to be about the same. However, the homemade cyclone looks to be about twice the height, don't know if it's more efficient at that size, but it works well. Could have probably reduced the footprint by 1/3, but I wanted the 30 gallon waste barrel on it so I can collect scraps as I clean shop. Unit is quite stable even with the additional height, it follows me around the shop with a light pull on the hose.
Alexis de Tocqueville was a very smart man.
