50mm Cyclone Assembly Instructions
Prelude to Assembling:
It is assumed in these instructions that as a keen woodworker you will be familiar with gluing, construction and the terminology used below.
Many hands make light work, a willing assistant will make assembly easier but is not required for the smaller models but definitely recommended for the 100mm.
For clarity a word about glues, there are 2 glues provided, a specialist plastic glue in the clear bottle and a 2 part branded adhesive. The 2 part adhesive is only used on the joining strip. Once this step is complete glue refers to the specialist plastic glue.
Also be aware the machining of the parts can leave sharp edges that can cut you. Sand or file these away if you find any on your kit.
Preparing the kitAfter unpacking your Cyclone you should have the pieces shown below. You can start by peeling off all the protective plastic and checking you have all the parts show below which are:
- 1. 50mm Tubes (x2)
- 2. Body
- 3. Lid
- 4. Foot
- 5. Tensol 12 Glue
- 6. Joining strip (Not visible in picture 50mm x 290mm strip with red tape on)
Once you have these parts check all edges for any fluffy machined edges and remove these with a piece of high grit sand paper. The tube ends can often be slightly rough from machining and these are easily sanded smooth. This is not required and is just something you can do if you wish.
Making the bodyBefore doing this next stage decide which side, when looking at the Cyclone the inlet tube will be on and practice bending the cyclone around to see which way gets the inlet on the side you prefer.
Remove the protective layer from the joining strip so to expose the adhesive layer:
Stick one half of the joining strip to one edge of the Cyclone body.
