I have been planning to get a Dust Deputy for some time. But being a lazy booger I didn’t want a small 5 gal container that I would have to empty more frequently. Easter weekend I scored about a 30 gal plastic barrel with a clamp ring lid while I was visiting in-laws in Windsor, ON. It is perfect, works great and doesn’t need to be emptied as often. The first thing I did to test it was to clean out the bottom bag and attached filter on my main dust collector. Damn this thing works as advertised! Filled the barrel about half full with little to no dust in the shop vac. I mounted it to a small plastic furniture dolly I had in the shop to be able to move the barrel easily. I have a 6 gal Genie plastic shop vac and a 16 gal Rigid shop vac and I can move the dust deputy and set it up to whichever vac is more convenient. Here are some pics I took this morning after emptying the barrel.
