  • Blackbox Cyclone under Stinger 2


    Hello,
    I'm getting the blackbox cyclone to go with my Stinger 2. Am I correct in thinking that the only way to get it under the unit is to lift the whole cnc up 18" so I can slide the 17" tall cyclone under it? I know it's not ideal to put the cyclone under the stinger but I'm in a pretty tight shop.
    many thanks

    I have no experience with the BlackBox box, but what you describe is probably the best way to accomplish the task. The vacuum setup is very heavy to my understanding and even if it could slip between the lower and upper rails of the Stinger II without damaging anything, that might be very unwieldy to accomplish. Just like working on a vehicle, do not depend upon the jack(s) to hold up the Stinger while you do the deed. It needs to be on study blocking for safety while you are crawling around down there and trying to move something heavy around.

      Stuart, I cannot talk to the sizes for the Stinger 2 but I do have a cyclone vacuum and it runs at almost 100dBs at high frequency so very annoying. I installed mine outside and I live in a subdivision with home on both sides and no one complains. I did install mufflers on the output side which does help some. I attached pics. FWIW

            My Hurricane came mounted under my Stinger IV and I took it off. I moved mine between the rails after I dropped it down to the ground to get it out. It was awkward but wasn't impossible to do with 2 people.

              I put one under mine - will try to post a pic but in short i used a ladder as a tripod, winch to lift and then just pushed it under onto the platform i suspended from the frame. I also added some 6” round ducting to get the heat out from under the table - seems to have worked well

                Many thanks. Can you show us a picture of the 6" round ducting you did?

                  Many thanks y'all. I got the appropriate casters ready from Caster City. I got these jacks to support the machine while I get the Black Box Cyclone under the machine. Will the cross bar circled in red fit in the jack stand? How thick is that cross bar?
                  really appreciate it

                    I put my Hurricane on the floor then set the SR44 over it when I installed the machine. I also put the vacuum machine on a small dolly so it can be moved a little when doing the PVC piping.

                      My Stinger II cross bar is 2 by 4 steel. Therefore, it wouldn't fit inside the jackstand ears. I'm not sure of the wall thickness on the steel crossbar.

                        Thank you very much. If the crossbar is 2x4, wouldn’t it fit fine between the jack stand ears?

                          Oh I see now. It’s four inches horizontal… dang. I’ve never used jack stands before… is there any way I can still use these safely? Maybe an extra attachment? Or do I need to find new jack stands with more width between the ears?
