As part of setting up my wood shop, I decided adding a dust collection system was high on my priority list. I did a fair amount of research (somewhere between due diligence and mild obsessiveness) and did my best to make the decisions that fit my needs. I decided to post some information here since I got a lot of good data and advice from others here (and other sites). Sorry if this gets a bit long. Please note that I recognize there are many opinions on the “right” way to ...
My first blog. I’ve just recently gotten into woodworking and quickly realized that even small projects create a lot of dust. And since I have two little girls in the house and I have asthma, I decided that I couldn’t keep working without some sort of dust collection system. I don’t have much space, and I didn’t want to spend tons of money, so I decided on the Dust Deputy DIY. It’s pretty basic: Shop-Vac, large plastic bucket (I was going to use a 5-gallon ...
I ordered, some time back, a kit from R, and some flexible hose from WC for a 2.5” systemsince mine is powered by a shop vacwith a dust deputy and a grease barrel filtering out the stuff the shopvac doesnt like Lets start with my Table Saw, since its where the system is centered. The panel I made and mentioned in last blog entry fell off and was always a temporary thing anyway. so i made one out of 3/8 recycled plywood, drilled and installed with screws ( another temporary fix ti...
Here are some pictures of a cart I made with one of the Oneida Dust Deputy cyclone. One of the features that I really like about what I made is the outlet/switch on the side. It allows me to plug in something, such as router table and then have an easy on/off switch for the vacuum. Also, the vacuum had a tray attached to hold the attachments and I mounted that to help hold the attachments. I will also say I am amazed at how well the cyclone protects the filter in the vacuum. Here is...
Dust Collection for my Radial Arm saw I was getting tired of all the saw dust plastered on the wall behind the RAS, and on the floor, I decided to explore You Tube to find out what ideas I might be able to use in my effort to maintain a clean shop.Here is the link to the design I decide to use with slight modification. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRFjRvQTckMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9TyYI800cw You will see that my dust hood has a taller opening but is not as wide as hi...
Since I did the Dust Deputy Review in Episode 27, I have been getting questions and have decided to answer them publicly with a video so everyone may benefit from the answers. In this video I show how I reinforced the 5 gallon bucket lid that I mount the Dust Deputy to. In Episode 28 I gave information to help the woodworkers decide which shop vacuum size might be the best to use with the Dust Deputy. Here are the last 2 videos: Episode 27: Dust Deputy Review Episode 28: Choosi...
In my last video I did a review of the Dust Deputy and showed how effective it is. This prompted several people to ask me about what size shop vacuum is necessary to work with the Dust Deputy. So in this video, I decided to explore that question and share the results with you. Even if you are not planning on using a Dust Deputy, you might find the information helpful in your decision to buy a shop vacuum. If you have not seen how effective it is, check out my previous video where I r...
I posted this in the review section as well. But I felt the video offers a lot of context on how I use the Dust Deputy as a professional, what tools I use it with, and how I have it set up. This is a lot of good information to consider if you are thinking of getting one. You can see my Dust Deputy review here. Your friend in the shop- Todd A.

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…....you know what I mean….... This is just a 2×4, a bunch of scrap wood, and the old metal base off of the dust collecto...
I’ve recently gotten religion on Dust Collection – both my stationary and portable ‘systems’. Articles within Lumberjocks and Fine Woodworking finally penetrated my thick skull – for me, woodworking was more about the cutting and shaping, not the start-to-finish process. Having said this, I have an older ‘Fein’ shop vac – the basket type; though, this is not the essential point. Thinking about the shop vac as a system never occurred to me, pr...
