Oneida - DIY Dust Deputy (Rating: 4)

I bought my Dust Deputy 3 years ago and have been using it regularly since then. Many of you have probably looked at the Dust Deputy and considered purchasing the plastic cyclone with some hesitation, unsure of how it really performs.

In this video I give some good context as to how I use it, with what tools, and how I have it set up. I also open up the Dust Deputy bucket to show how much dust is inside after 3 months of use, and then I open the shop vacuum to see how much dust made it past the cyclone. I think you will be amazed.

While the dust Deputy works great, I give the Dust Deputy 4 stars because I am hung up a bit on the high price point, I paid $60 for the cyclone alone from Rockler. However, I will admit that it has paid for itself in my shop in the 3 years that I have been using it professionally.

This is the filter that I use in my Ridgid Shop Vacuum that is connected to the Dust Deputy.

To keep the Dust Deputy from tipping over, it sits in another bucket with some ballast in it. In this case, I used some framing nails that were busting out of their cardboard box in my shop.
