My shop vac has been there for me for years and have had no problems with it. Been reading about importance of dust collection and since I never even cleaned the filter once in 8 yrs thought I would give him a break and my lungs too. The wife came in the WoodShop/laundry room and caught me in a snow globe type situation and insisted (I use that term loosely) that I do something. Besides, her clothes had a nice layer of sawdust on them. I don’t recommend that.

Decided to head to HD and buy a new filter and a bag for the ShopVac…...$50 later I decided that there must be a cheaper way so I found this. I returned the filter and bag to HD. Thanks drez20001. Its a very simple build and only cost me about $25. I found extra hoses on CL for $10.
