N-Scale Cyclone Separator

I'm looking for an N-Scale cyclone separator to add to my sawmill complex.  I know about the one by Ngineer on Shapeways but it's not correct for my application.  Anyone know of any others out there I could check out?

Larsens implements came with a cast metal wall mounted unit somewhere in that mashed up bag of white metal  :D

@rodsup9000 made some excellent ones on his Photon that he may offer for sale.

Those are definitely nice.  The ones I need have a similar shape but they also have a pipe coming out the top that's curved over about 135 degrees.  I'll try to find a photo and post it here.

Exactly!  Here's a crappy photo showing the top of what I mean.  Wazzou, your's looks like it would do the trick with the addition of the curved top.

For something that big, could you use the flex part of a bendable straw?

The size of the example I posted is quite a bit larger than the ones Rod has designed.  (More airflow)
I'm sure if Rod wanted to design larger ones with the bend in the in-flow pipe, he could.
I know I'd be interested based on his previous designs.

 I'll work on drawing something up tomorrow that will look close to what's in the photo.

 John, thanks
Those (supports) are steps for a "S" scale GP 20 that I did for a local modeler.
