Dust Deputy Shop Vac Project

Good friend (fellow woodworker) gave me an Oneida Dust Deputy cyclone kit to be used with my ShopVac. I use a Oneida cyclone to support my large tools, and now have a deputy to support the shop vacuum as well.

I found a Woodsmith plan that incorporated a rolling cart to house all the components. The cart is made from 3/4” plywood (about 2/3 of a sheet) and 2” casters. The first use was to clean up the mess made from the project.

Happy to say that the bottom of my ShopVac was as ‘clean as a bone’ after the clean up…...

Nice job. Might have to add this to my growing list of things to do.

Thanks for the kind words. The plan that I used can be downloaded from WoodSmith Shop website. Here is the path to find the project:

- From browser, go to “www.woodsmith.com”
- Click on “Woodsmith Shop TV Show” tab (yellow tab) near top of page
- Under “Episode Previews and Plans”, click “Browse Episodes”
- In the Search box, enter “Shop Vacuum”
- When the results are shown, click on “Shop Vacuum”

(In episode 609)

I remember Woodsmith asking for an email address long ago (I do receive occasional email from them) Don’t really mind giving up my email since it provides me 8 years of Woodsmith plans (and episode videos)

I used the same plan to make mine also. I have the Clearvue version rather than the Onieda, but I am still very happy with the results. I use mine almost exclusively with my tracksaw and palm sander.

Thanks for sharing Chris. I know you will love it.

Has anyone planed or built one of these with one appliance over the other to save floor space?

Here is one from a few days ago. but to me it seems it would be prone to Tip Over without a pretty big base .
