« Part 28: Dust Collector Mod Part 29 of The Basement series Part 30: The Sander Cart...... »

Always working on the dust issues in the basement…......

Love the Fein vac – Klingspor was selling the Turbo II for $100 off list a few weeks ago, so just couldn’t resist and the Super Deputy is just a sweet addition. The reviews are accurate on this one – it works great.

Just hate dragging around all the hoses and crap… know what I mean…....

This is just a 2×4, a bunch of scrap wood, and the old metal base off of the dust collector I modified recently. It looked a bit shabby – so it got a coat of paint.

The vac and cyclone just drop in with a bit of a friction fit:

Thanks for looking.

Nice, pretty sweet paint job too. Kinda race car looking color scheme. Your shop has to be a great place to make stuff.

Sweet. A cart like that could come in real handy. I don’t even have a vortex thingy on mine, but it does not trail along very well at all and the hose parts keep getting in the way. I need to think this through…

That’s it Steve – it’s was so frustrating to try and move the vac – so alot times you just skip it…...look out dust!

Eddie – maybe I should get a sponsor and plaster their name on the hose holder thing – and all other future projects, and then maybe a could afford this hobby….:) Good luck on the vac mods!
