I previously built one of the Shop Notes style Dust Deputy Carts however I didn’t care for it for several reasons so I decided to build this one with a smaller footprint, more capacity (15 gallons) and some other features I wanted (my daughter says it looks like some kind of Robot!). The vacuum motor is a Fein Turbo ll with auto trigger, the barrel is the bottom half of a split type from a dust collector and the cord/hose support is from Rockler. I made the lid from 2 pieces of 12mm multi ply birch with a plexiglass viewing window and the “filter box” is made from 12mm and 18 mm multi ply birch. I used 1 1/2” ABS pipe to support the filter box and connected it with 3/8” threaded rod. The tool/accessory holders were originally made from 2 pieces of 12mm glued together however I came across some 1” HDPE scraps so I remade them out of that and the hose holder is made for a central vacuum system. The lid and filter box were sprayed with Duplicolor Bedliner (kinda wish I had just put a clear coat on the birch so I may re-do it!) and I made a swiveling boom arm that attaches to the top of the cord/hose support. I’m also trying to figure out a way to add a hanger for my sander so I don’t have to stand there waiting for it to wind down. Almost forgot, since I had already veered way off of my original “simple” plan I had some decals made as well!

Looks sort of like a homemade Dust Cobra.

Nice work. Great design, and you get some serious “Style points” for the paint job and decals!

Nicely done. Is it stable with the motor positioned on the top of the structure?

I am thinking to make one like that in the links because I think it is nice
I guess your project work with the same idea (or close to)

Thanks guys and yes Jim it is surprisingly stable which I believe is due to the way the casters are set outboard of the drum.

lcwood-that is a mini cyclone as well so it should work on the same principle

“DustExtracto-bot just wants to feel love.” That is very cool…practical, mobile, and space-efficient. Nice.

Thanks Caleone and I think “DustExtracto-bot” fits it well so I may need to get another Decal made! :)

The timing of this post could not have been any better. I am reorganizing my garage shop and was thinking of doing something similar. Already have the Turbo II and a Dust Deputy for the cause. Hardest part is going to be coming up with a respectable custom decal.

Thanks and I forgot to mention that one of the best features is I no longer have to bend over to plug/unplug a tool or turn it on/off!

After looking at my Turbo II and DD, a question came up; Why didn’t you leave the Turbo II on the ground and mount the DD over it?

The first reason was I wanted more capacity and the best reason was I got tired of bending over so I wanted the plug/switch up top! The design inspiration actually came from one of my other creations which is the Delta 50-760/Super Dust Deputy cart I made..

So far this has been working out very well and although I haven’t had to empty it yet I found it only takes a couple of minutes to remove the boom arm, sander and motor to make lifting the top off easier. I added a couple of features including the sander hanger and boom arm along with a second hose which allows me to leave the sander within arms reach as I use it frequently and switching over to the boom arm hose for other tools only takes a few seconds. I just need to paint the tubes and add the plastic end caps however I may move the sander hanger higher if I can figure out a simple way to do that without it becoming too obtrusive (looks like you have to right click on the pictures to get the full view).

swiveling boom arm and sander hanger arm made from 3/4” square tube…

I found the hanger at Home Depot and made the mounting block from 1” HDPE with 1/4” threads tapped into it for attaching….

boom arm attached to the top of the Rockler hose/cord holder which happened to already be threaded for the 3/8 plastic knob and the end of the hose is stored in one of the extension wands on the side to keep it from flopping around…

boom arm extended for use…..

boom arm hose holders made from 1” HDPE and cord holders made by clipping off a wire clamp…

Ended up knocking the sander off of the hanger and breaking it so I made a couple more changes using 2” abs pipe/fittings. The new sander location is much more convenient and I can also reach further with it.
