    To big to be a chicken. To small to be a broom.

    The leg like imprint in the side of the box looks to me like a lathe as a first guess.

    A beat up box? On 2nd thought a DC? 3rd thought - a tribe of pigmies holding a secret meeting?

    Wynn filter?
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Here it is...UPS wasn't kind to it, got squashed from the top a little the back side, but it's not bad enough to affect it's function.

    I forewent the installation hardware as I'll need to remove the thien baffle to install it, so I went the bungee route for now, may do the OEM hardware down the road.

    A couple of crisscrossed wire ties to keep them in place.

    Well done Darren, now my million dollar question......when Jason reported on the performance of his he mentioned the sucking power at the end of a run being strong enough to grip his arm but his was the Jet unit.....we all know the HF is a copy but is it the same in performance. ? I am wondering about fan blade and efficiency now that you have the whole thing modified compared to the Jet unit. My bet is little difference and when you factor in price probably huge benefit.
    cheers

    Boy was I off, I need to pay more attention

    I like the Wynn bags a lot better than the HF bag as well (tougher and fits better), its pretty cool that they throw those in. The Wynn folks are nice people.

    I didn't get it hooked up to any tools tonight to compare. The HF does have a smaller impeller (10") than the Jet, so I suspect his would out suck (in a good way) the HF. For the price of the HF and filter, I've got about $300 in mine now. Even if the cfm didn't increase, as long as the air is cleaner I'll be happy.

    btw...I don't plan to do anymore mods to mine, but I've heard of some folks going with a rikon impleller for $60 (sold out) which fits and is 12" to add some cfm. Have also heard of them removing the face plate off the squirrel cage and making their own with a 6" intake to allow connection to more readily available duct work.

    Not sure they threw in the bags, was part of the filter package, but they are great folks to deal with. They also didn't charge my card until the delivery confirmation showed as delivered.
