This is my version of modifying a Harbor Freight Dust Collector and adding a Super Dust Deputy. The cabinet is made from 3/4 inch OSB subflooring and the dust collection drawer front is 3/4 inch OSB subflooring. The drawer itself is made of 3/16 inch project plywood. The main cabinet and supporting sides are glued and screwed together using #8 1-1/2 inch square drive head screws. The viewing window is 1/8 inch Lexan. The original HF bottom with the casters is still used. The capacity of the dust collection drawer is 29 Gal.

Nice job! Looks like you did a great job of repackaging the components. Nice small footprint, too. Is that a Wynn Environmental cartridge filter?

Nice job this is very close to what I will be doing. Did you open the inlet port on the blower or did you leave it at 4 inch.

The inlet OD on the blower is 5”, and I left it at 5”. Overall height is 86”
