I think you’re missing the design intent of the Dust Deputy and trying to make it something that it’s not. A Dust Deputy is designed to be used with a shop vac. It is NOT a separator for a large shop dust collector. The inlet and outlet sizes should tell you that. I have a Dust Deputy that is hooked in line with a re-purposed central vacuum cleaner that I use when doing scroll sawing and sanding with a ROS and 1/4 sheet pad sander. It sepasrates the fine saw dust to keep the vacuum filter from loading up. It does a great job for this purpose. I don’t try to use it to collect sawdust from the planer, table saw, etc. This is a job for a full size 1 1/2 – 3 hp 5 – 6” piped system dust collector like a Clear Vue.
