I’m currently using a shop vac for my dust collection. It works well enough, but I find that the tub and filter fill and clog up pretty easily. For Christmas, my fiance got me the Oneida Dust Deputy, which I wanted for a while. For those that don’t know what the Dust Deputy is, it’s simply a cyclonic separator that you hook your shop vac to, then hook the hose to it’s input. The Deputy pulls all the dust, shavings, etc down into a 5gal bucket and keeps your vac practically dust free. So far I love using it except that it’s a bit of a pain to move around as the vac and separator are only attached by hoses. There are bolts I could use to mount the bucket to the tub of the vac, but I didn’t want to start drilling holes in everything.

Fast forward a week when I got my latest issue of ShopNotes. What’s one of the projects? That’s right, a cart for your shop vac and Dust Deputy. It’s made of plywood and is perfect for carting both components around the shop. It’s also got a shelf for attachments and a hose hanger.

I’ve got it mainly done except for the hose hanger. I’ll probably be finishing that up over the weekend. Pics coming soon.

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

Ha! When I was reading this I was thinking “man do I have a solution for you.” But alas, you already have your copy of SN. Looking forward to your design.
