Small dust collector VS. dust depudy.


Recommended Posts

Yup what Conductor says. Sorry I meant separator. The shop filters are great from what I've read. I only have experience with the separator a and the dust deputy and others like it, are a great way to keep the air clean. I just bought the Festool Midi but it is expensive. The small separation kits are a really great way to keep your air clean and your shop vac clean too!

I had originally made a wooden cyclone according to bill pentz plans to work with my shop vac. It was a lot of tapered and angled cuts for the bottom cone and a segmented barrel for the top. made it a bit too big for my shop vac and too small for a small dust collector. I tried again with the same plans and made a larger one big enough for a small dust collector. Time spent on the cyclones >6 hours cutting and >15 gallons of sawdust. Later i made a blower out of pine and plywood powered by a 1/2 hp motor but that did not have enough rpm. Still a great experiment.
