What kind of wood chip/sawdust container do you use with your Super Dust Deputy? I have seen some folks using a 30 gallon galvanized trash can on YouTube. But I also saw where some guy used this set up and the vacuum collapsed the galvanized trash can. I have a 2hp Grizzly dust collector. Any thoughts?

I took perhaps an unconventional approach to the chip/sawdust collection, figuring it would be easier and faster to empty the debris drum. The fiber drum sets in a sealed box. The cyclone dumps the chips in the drum through a hole in the top of the box. The door is opened and the drum slid out for emptying and back in and the door closed and locked with window sash locks after the drum is emptied. Since the drum is never pressurized, a light-weight drum or even a cardboard box could be used. This photo illustrates the setup…

No problems with my galv. trash can. I use one in my home shop as well with a 3hp DC. I did collapse a plastic trash can with that one but I have a hard time believing a standard steel trash can being damaged by a small DC.

I built a very similar design as JBrow, enclosed a 33 gal RubberMaid trash can in a plywood box with DustDeputy attached to top of the box.

I put my Super Dust Deputy on top of a 55 gal plastic barrel. Works as when I am in full build mode, I fill it up in about 5 weeks. I cut a rectangle hole 3/4 of the way from the top and installed a clear plastic window in it so I could see when it is full.
