I have the JET DC1100CK dust collector and looked at replacing the canister for
the unit. I have cleaned it a number of times already and had questioned
replacing it until I looked up the cost. The best price is $200. which is half
the price of the unit. I have had the unit for over a year now and have filled
the bag under the canister a dozen or so times. Do users on these unit just
continue cleaning them or has anyone found a better price on them Thanks
I have the DC1100C. Looks like the same unit as yours.
The filter should last for years. Swing the "paddle" that
flaps against the filter ribs for a few revolutions and
blow the accumulated dust out frequently. I do it after
several bag changes. I put a "Turbo" collector on a
garbage can in front of the unit and it makes bag changing
I have had debri punch holes in the large plastic hose
that carries dust from the impellor to the bag and the
plastic bags tear once in a while. I'm still using the
bags that came with it and am looking for tougher
replacements. Anyone have a source?
Tiring of the tears in the plastic bags - and running out of them in
conjunction with my tightwadedness - I placed my plastic bag inside an
old metal trash can I had sitting around. Not only does this help with
containing the debris from escaping a bag puncture, but it makes carting
the shavings to the outside recycle bin easier as well as cutting down
on DC noise. Here's a pic:
Had mine for 3(?) years now and have no intention of replacing it any
time soon. Use the internal paddle, use a medium-stiff bristle brush and
compressed air on occasion. There's no reason it shouldn't last a very
long time without abuse or damage.
