    Lots of videos on YouTube and ideas on Pinterest on upgrades to the HF system. Essentially all of them add a pressure drop canister to the incoming air to drop heavy particulate out before it gets to the impeller.

    DIY---done....

    The angles of incoming air and the cone make a difference of how fine dust it will collect. This system collects talc-fine powder and I used one as a pre-filter for many things from my woodworking tools and sanders, to my old Grizzly dust collector. They just flat out work. They're not exactly cheap, for a 2" inlet and 5-gal bucket size, the $49.95 version would be just fine.

    They even have 5” and 6” system now. That would be awesome for use before the harbor freight collector w a high efficiency bag filter, for those of you who can’t exhaust outside. Would catch a lot before it ever got to the collection bags.

    But of course if you can extract he large particles then exhaust outside? Then it’s a non issue. If you have to exhaust into your shop? I think a dust deputy first, then the harbor freight w the high quality replacement bag would be the way to go.

    Good ones of someone using the 5" in front of their dust collector
