    Well, the DC is more than that by itself...I'd say it is a good deal!

    I agree with Jeff, that seems like a pretty decent price. With the cyclone attached, I do kind of doubt it's getting the CFM the seller is claiming it gets, but I'd think it'd still be ample for your needs.

    If you do decide to get it, let me know if you need help getting it home. I happen to know someone with a pickup truck and a lift gate.

    Thanks Jeff and Vaughn.

    Vaughn, I just might take you up on your offer. Right now, I am trying to arrange a meeting with the seller.

    Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get over to his house in time and someone else got it. I missed it by half an hour.

    Oh well! back to scouring craiglist ads.

    Bummer. When something does come up, the offer still stands for the pickup truck.

    You know for about the same price, you can put a Wynn pleated filter on a Harbor Freight "2 hp" DC and build a Thien separator. I suspect that it would preform similarly to the Jet and cyclone separator you were looking at.

    Well, that's Craigslist for you. Sometimes some good deals, sometimes not, and when they are good, you sometimes get lucky, sometimes not. Oh well, keep looking....
