Cyclone low in stature, tall in performance
Until recently, dust collection for home woodworkers came in the form of affordable roll-around units (usually with porous-filter bags) or pricey, bulky cyclone collectors powering a central system. Now Oneida bridges that gap with its 110-volt Mini-Gorilla portable cyclone dust collector. Standing just 5' tall, it produces a mere 77 dB—quieter than a tablesaw—making it perfect for basement shops.
The Mini-Gorilla’s powerful 1-1⁄2-hp Baldor motor, fan, and 10'-long, 5"-diameter flex-hose sucked up all the dust we could make with our tablesaw, bandsaw, and combination belt/disc sander. And what little dust made it past the heavy-steel cyclonic separator was trapped in the fine-filtering canister.
That said, weI would not recommend this collector for use with a planer or jointer, because chips quickly fill up the 17-gallon drum. And even though the optional mobile stand rolls smoothly on its three wheels, the wide stance makes it clumsy to move among machines in a tight shop.
