My try at a homemade Dust Deputy

After seeing what jcoulam did with his homemade dust deputy I decided o try it myself instead of spending the money on one from Oneida. So today I gave it a whirl since I had time between coats of poly on a table I'm building for a freind.

I didn't quite finish but this is what I ended up with.

Pretty much the same thing as jcoulam. I am taking a few more pictures of the process so that others might give it a try too. It wasn't very diffcult, the hardest part was making the funnel.

I tried it at first without cutting the piece of metal but then I got some outside help and came up with a stencil that I could cut out that would give me the perfect funnel. I am going to have that on my blog for everyone to see and when I am done with the project I am going to put into the project section.

I have alot better description and more photos on my blog if your interested!

Should have it working tomorrow…..

Blog not found
Sorry, the blog you were looking for does not exist


I think it will serve you well. Well done.
It works great!

Try it now. :)

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
Looks really good. The link above works.Might have to try this one.

I made a large one, but still waiting for the actual dust collector. Maybe I'll sometime show the video of why not to try and make a impellar yourself. It blew apart. Fun to build, fun to watch fly apart. Good thing is the cyclone is in tack.
