With all my wood turning and saw dust that is generated in the shop that accumulate rather quickly I needed something that wont clog my vacuum every time is vacuum. I was searching around in the Google Search engine and found The Dust Deputy . I used a Home Depot bucket and my Ridgid vacuum cleaner. This system has proven to very satisfactory and does a great job. I almost never have any thin in vacuum cleaner. I just mounted the system on a simple 2×4 and plywood cart.
