I picked this up today, and would like to turn it into a tower setup with the super dust deputy that’s there. Should I have any problem mounting the motor directly on top of the deputy? The guy that sells the cyclones on eBay says the inlet and outlet need to be on opposite sides? I am limited on space is the reason for the tower setup. Any ideas or suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks Michael

I would say you could mount the motor anywhere you want. Most I’ve seen mount them on the top.

I built something akin to newwoodbutcher, from a Delta footprint – it worked very well.
