Thien separator :: 2015
My first attempt at a thien separator. This allows the main bulk of vacuum debris to collect in the bottom of the bucket, keeping the air filter cleaner.
A number of designs are available on YouTube, this one is pieced together from a few places.
I needed an old bucket, offcuts, on-sale vacuum, left over bits-and-pieces. The finished unit is vacuum & bucket combined into one piece. The vacuum works well & has suction for much longer than usual. Next I need to put a clear plastic window in the bucket.
