Woodstock W1049 Large Dust Collection Separator
Fits 30-gallon metal trash can -not included
Our Dust Collection Separator increases the capacity and efficiency of standard dust collection systems. The uniquely designed fitting features molded inlets and outlets which can be easily connected to standard systems using 4-inch flexible hose. You'll be amazed at how well it works.
- Fits 20 to 21-inch diameter openings.
Fits Standard 30-gallon Metal Trash Can
Designed to fit securely on top of a standard 30-gallon metal trash can, this molded ABS fitting is engineered to use cyclonic action to drop out larger particles from the dust flow even before getting to a stand-alone dust collector. Fits cans with 20 to 21-inch diameter opening. Metal trash can must be used for grounding purposes and to prevent collapse due to vacuum forces with less rigid plastic or nylon cans.
Clean-ups are easy because the Large Dust Collection Separator just lifts off the can for easy disposal of larger dust particles and chips. Greatly reduces the need to remove, dump, reattach and simply handle dust collection bags altogether. Capture more dust and breathe easy with the W1049 Dust Collection Separator.
- Connects to 4-inch flex hose - not included
- Fits 30-gal. metal trash can -not included
- ABS Plastic
The Woodstock Dust Separator utilizes a special patented design that initiates circular airflow while maintaining air movement within the system. This allows wood chips and sawdust to enter the separator directly through the hose connected to your machine instead of continuing straight to and accumulating in a dust collector. The larger chips and shavings are then separated from the fine dust flow and deposited into the trash can before continuing through the hose connected to the dust collector where they would otherwise bog down a single stage collector.
- Cyclonic action
- Increases bag & filter life
Includes 2-Stage Dust Collection Hood - JW1049

Here is a link to my followup video demonstrating this mod:
It arrived as pictured. It came with no instructions, no paperwork, no hose connector and NO sealing gasket.
I took the Separator with me to Home Depot to test fit it to various trash cans. Contrary to what other reviewers have said, it WILL NOT fit a 44 gal. Brute Rubbermaid can, it falls inside. For the 32 gal. Brute, the outer flange of the Separator sets loosely on top of the trash cans' rim. [Note: Some have used this can and used c-clamps to hold the Separator to the rim. Be sure to add weather stripping under to the flange to seal.] The inner lip of the Separator WILL slide down snugly onto the rim of a 30 gal. metal trash can ($18). The label on the Separator says it fits a 20" diameter trash can. The rim of the metal can I bought measures 20 7/8" OD. On the inner lip of the Separator, you will need to apply some 3/8" or wider dense foam weather stripping for a good seal. The vacuum created by the Dust Collector really pulls the Separator lid down firmly onto the weather stripping. The inner lip is nearly 1" wide, so it will allow for some variance in can rim OD.
The hoses screw into the openings for what seem to be snug fit, but to screw the hoses in - they have to be free at the other end to rotate. For me, my inlet hose runs 10' up the wall and across the rafters to a splice. I did not want to climb a ladder to disconnect the hose from the splice and the hose to the Dust Collector - whether it be then or in the future if I ever needed to disconnect the hoses from the Separator. So I glued 2 (4") dust collecton hose splices into the openings to act as nipples for my hoses to SLIP over and be clamped. I found that the splice connectors fit snugly into the openings - positioning the splice at its mid point, half in half out. I then used a plastic epoxy to glue the splice connector to the Separator and to seal. The plastic epoxy is suppose to offer a little flex in the joint to prevent cracking. I also added two 1" angles to the bottom of each splice/nipple to give it a little extra support. [See my pictures above] Other reviewers have suggested adding this connection for the hose and for me it had to be done. The hose splices and epoxy added another $15 to the price of the Separator. The job turned out good and I'm much happier connecting my hoses in this manner.
With this item you do have to do some customizing to fit your hoses, make a good seal, etc.. But it is a must have item to save on time and labor emptying the Dust Collector bag and save wear 'n tear on the impeller.
Outer flange: 7/16" wide
Inner lip width: 15/16" (this is not a channel but an open lip to accommodate trash can rim variations)
Inner lip height: 1 5/16" (to slide down onto can rim)
[See my pictures for details]
I purchased this item because I really needed to make my dust collector two-stage. It was getting immediately clogged by both my planer and jointer's large chips. I wasn't willing or able to shell out money for a larger unit, and material costs and time to build my own would've added up to more than this item. So I decided to give it a gamble knowing that Amazon would have my back if this didn't work.
The item was shipped immediately and I received it within 3 days. It truly is just a large piece of molded plastic/composite that is designed to fit 20" diameter trash cans. Even though I had 3 different style trash cans laying out behind my house, I fully expected to have to go purchase a trash can to fit this unit, based on a lot of the other reviews. But I I tried it on all three cans and it actually fit somewhat on two of the three styles. It was loose, but I decided to bungy it down and give it a shot anyways and see if I could save $20-40 on a new can.
Here's my setup: I don't have a professional shop by any means. I have an older style Jet "lunch box" planer, and a newer Grizzly 6" jointer. They do the jobs I need them to do, but both machines have been a huge headache when it comes to chip/dust collection. I have some 4" dust collection hose from Grizzly as well as some of their hose clamps. The planer did not come with any kind of built-in collection port, so I retrofit one of my own from plywood. The jointer has a built-in port. My collector is an inexpensive 1hp shop fox dust collector.
My first test was to hook this system up to my planer. I was very surprised to find that it not only worked, but I was shocked and thrilled at how well it functioned. 99% of the chips were in the trash can while only the very fine dust made it through to the collecor's bag. And that was with a loose fit on the trash can, a homemade dust hood on the planer and a 1hp dust collector! When I hooked it up to the jointer it performed equally impressive.
I could've continued to use the system like that but I had some extra foam weather stripping laying around so I ran that between the seam of the lid and the can to help fill any gaps. That made the fit pretty snug. I don't know if that improved the performance at all, but I felt better knowing that the lid fit more snuggly.
I've run probably around 100 boardfeet of poplar, oak, pine and mahogany through my planer and jointer with this set up. I could not have asked for anything better out of a $38 setup. I have not had a single clog on my dust collector since purchasing this separator and I've not yet had to empty the bag on the collector either (I've had to empty the trash can many times however). Emptying the can is as easy as undoing the bungy cords, lifting the lid off and then dumping the can and reattaching the lid. Good luck to anyone looking for a better, less expensive way to create a two-stage dust collection system.
Now, I had a few things already in my possession that made my experience smoother including: a collection of pre-owned trash cans, weather stripping, bungy cords, and dust collection hose/clamps. Without already owning these items, I could've potentially spent another $100+ to get this setup working properly. You'll need to keep that in mind before purchasing this item. It is definitely not a standalone piece.
In the end, I'm thrilled with what I got with this separator. Is woodstock charging $30 for a $3 piece of plastic? Probably, but until someone else comes out with something to compete, they can ask what we'll pay, and it's still far cheaper than buying a brand new two-stage system.
I'm very happy with this item and would gladly purchase it again.
In addition, if your hoses are stiff you may have an issue with the cover coming off of the bucket, but once you turn the vacuum on the suction should bring it down to create a nice seal. But if your worried about it coming off you could just attach a few screws in your bucket and put a bungee strap over it to secure it in place. I did something similar to this when I built a little cart for the bucket and lid to ride on above my vacuum to it would all move together as an assembly.
Overall I would highly recommend this is for an economical dust collection option.
