This has been on my list for awhile now, as I found myself not using my DD as much as I should due to the fact there were two different units to drag around. This makes it nice and convenient to roll around the shop.
I got the idea from shop notes and this is my interpretation of it. Their plans are for the DD bucket and I have a 25 gallon steel drum I pick up off of Craigslist, which makes mine a little taller. I also bypassed the top flap that rest on the top of the DD as mine sits in place and is not moving! The hole thing rest on four 3” rotating casters, so it moves around great. It has storage for some of the accessories to the shop vac, which is nice when you need them, so you don’t have to hunt around for them!
During this project as a newbie, I discovered I need more practice with my Rigid osculating sander I recently got as well as how to make a perfect circle!! I always seem to see people making awesome circles and I need to learn this I suppose. I traced the drum and the shop vac, took the jigsaw to them and then shaped them with my sander….There not quit perfect!!
