Your problem is not enough volume in your vac. A large 'wood shop' type like the one I built for my shop would do the job. Mine has a 1 1/2hp motor and moves a lot of air. Haven't tried it on a blasting cabinet but it doesn't even raise a sweat keeping up with my 6" jointer or my 12" planer. Does a super job taking out large and fine dust. I don't even run a final filter just let the vortex do all the work. I got the plans for mine from WOOD magazine a few years ago.

i think you are right in that they are different. the big cone shaped shiny thing in willys picture is called a cyclone, it seperates dust and debree from air by spinning the air in the cylindrical part of the cyclone. the size and weight of particle that needs to be seperated determines the physical size of the cyclone and since wood shavings and wood dust has more volume per weight than fine glass bead dust the cyclone is different. you can even mount one in your diesels exhaust to remove the particles. as a rule of thumb; the smaller particle you want to seperate the higher the g-force in the cyclone...

Actually since the sand is much higher density than wood shavings, the cyclone separator will work on it better than wood, taking out even smaller particles of silica.

Actually, if you did live near me I WOULD get rid of you in my extremely messy shop! Still have a few small children unaccounted for who ventured into there and haven't been seen since!
