I am, possibly incorrectly, assuming that I should be using both together. So I am considering running the 4" hose from the dust collector into the cyclone, and then back out. That means I go 4" to 1.5" and again from 1.5" to 4" to attach to my table saw, jointer, etc...
UPDATE - It turns out I could also use a 2.5" fitting instead of 1.5" fitting (shown here, it's a tapered end on the dust deputy). Is that any better?
Or should I get a trash can separator lid off of amazon?
So my questions are:
- Am I reducing my CFM by doing this?
- Do I even need the Dust Deputy? From what I understand the cyclone is great to use in conjunction with a dust collector to minimize the dust that makes it into the Grizzly bag
- Bonus: You see the hose I have. I need something sturdy that I can use coming out of the cyclone into the woodworking equipment (4" ports), which will facility a lot of plugging in / out all of the time. Any ideas?
In these photos, please disregard the terrible 4" connection into the deputy, I'm trying to find the right adapters at the moment =).
