I needed a rolling cart to house my shop-vac and my homemade dust separator so that they would move together when I needed to drag the vac over to a power tool. The cart is made from 2×4’s, cedar osb that I was given and metal casters. The dust separator is achored by bungee cords. The cart works well. The separator has always worked well. It was constructed from a recycled locking 5 gallon pail and three pieces of angled PVC.
There’s nothing fancy at all about this, but it gets the job done and does a decent job of noise reduction from the vac.
I’m pretty sure I found the “plans” for the separator on-line. There is another 90 degree bend on the underside of the lid so that the dust gets rotated to drop out the heavier bits.
