    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I took a long time to finally make this purchase, mainly because I thought the price was a little high for a piece of plastic. My (endless) research indicated the DD rated highly, higher than even more expensive alternatives. I finally pulled the trigger on the “economical” DIY model and I could not be happier with the result. After suffering through cleaning my clogged shopvac 2-3 times during every project, I was amazed at how well the DD worked. I ran the new unit for several weeks on a project, during which I attached it to my miter saw, router and sander. Also cleaned up the floor under the table saw. I had about 6″ of dust and shavings in my DD bucket. When I opened the shopvac, there was virtually nothing inside. Maybe the slightest hint of micro dust. It works. It’s great.

    How I built it: It needs a lidded container. I procured 2 5-gallon pickle buckets which have a tight fitting lid with a rubber seal. For a base, I cut a piece of plywood to a size big enough to hold a pickle bucked and my shop vac side by side. I mounted one pickle bucket (no lid) and my shopvac (wheels removed) to the base. I bought a cheap furniture dolly from Harbor Freight, took the wheels off and put them on my base. I mounted the DD to the lid of the 2nd bucket. I made a gasket out of gasket material, but you could just get a tube of liquid gasket at Wal-Muerto. Seal the lid down onto the DD bucket and slide it into the bucket on the base unit. That way, it easily lifts out when you need to dump it (wear a mask!). Hook up your hoses, plug in the shop vac and Bob’s your uncle. A great companion tool is a switching plug (SP). You plug the SP into power, and then you plug your main tool and the shopvac into the SP. When you turn on (and off) your main tool, the SP automatically turns on (and off) the shop vac.

    I purchased the molded Dust Deputy to attach to my RIGID shopvac. The deputy worked well in separating fine particles of dirt and dust and made a huge difference in keeping the shopvac’s filter clean. The kit was easy to assemble but I was concerned with the rigidity of the top lid of the plastic bucket where the cyclone attaches. The lid flexes under the weight of the cyclone and seems flimsy. I modified the top lid by constructing a plywood disk that attaches on the bottom side of the lid to add support for the cyclone separator. This keeps the plastic lid from sagging under the weight of the cyclone separator and helps keep it snapped tight to the lower bucket.
    If you purchase this unit, be careful not to drop it, mine fell to the floor when the suction hose became trapped and I pulled the shopvac by the handle. The unit with the hoses attached fell on the concrete floor and shattered. I am not sure what type of plastic it is made of, but so far it has resisted the effects of many types of glue commonly available. I have since purchased the metal version of the Dust Deputy, it is much more robust and fits perfectly in the existing hardware contained in the plastic kit. I am very happy with the performance with the Dust Deputy, but you may consider spending a little more money to purchase the more robust metal version.

    I found myself working with a lot of MDF on a recent project. Not only did the MDF dust clog my vacuum filters quickly, but Im sure I inhaled more than the vac collected. I added this to my Ridgid shop vac as well as the 1 micron filter and its like a different machine. Virtually 100% filtering effectiveness and since the filter is left clear it has more suction than before. Granted, I now have a 5 gallon bucket attached with a bungy cord to my vac so it doesn’t move around as easily, but it’s worth it.

    The inlet/outlet are for 2″ to 2.25″ hose (shop vacs are generally 2.25″), it doesn’t fit 2.5″. You’ll see some documentation shows it as 2.5″ though.

    Update: After a year of use I’m still shocked how well it works. I can pick up huge piles of ash or mdf, see the cone fill with debris, and think there has to be some making it to the vacuum filter but when I check it there’s only the tiniest amount of fine dust on the filter. Really, just amazed.
