Here is a picture of my new set up for dust collection.

I had to make 2 extra trips to Woodcraft to complete it. I bought the top of the bucket at woodcraft for 22.95 then I had to go back and get 4 fittings, 2 2-1/2 inch fittings then 2 2-1/4 inch fittings. Have already tried it out and I love it. Now on to cleaning the shop again.

I have thought about getting something like this… Seems like I have to empty my shop vac and knock the filter every week. The filter clogs up real fast.

I use cyclones on both my DC and shop vac and have very little dust getting through to the filters…and my shop has had its spring clean and is literally dust free.. well almost…lol

Good setup dude. They sure do hike up your vacuum a notch or two don’t they?
