I think this could turn out to be the next End grain cutting board craze. Jeff posted his and what a reaction he received (Jcoulam) LJ. I can’t thank him enough I was so sick of cleaning the filter on that vac. now not one thing in the vaccum canister and a clean filter. I added a support with a bucket so I could just slide the other bucket inside to hold it. Not an original Idea saw it on the oneida sight. Mine is not pretty but works great. Thanks again Jeff (Jcoulam)

Good job, but I hope you have better luck getting those buckets apart than I have. When I stack them now, I put something in on the side to break the seal!

A couple air holes drilled in the bottom of the lower bucket will solve the seal prob.

Good job! I like the shelf that you made to keep both the shop vac and the dust collector moving together. I am trying to figure out how to do that and you gave me a pretty good idea. Thanks!

The Lil Woman brought her vaccum filter for me to blow out today. I was just wondering how she would take to a cyclone mounted on her vaccum to keep the filter clean :-))

Cpdoll, just go to Jcoulam and look up his projects, he has directions, I could not see any point in duplicating his directions seeing I did it just like him. You will love it.

I love it! Great job! I really like the platform off the vac for the unit. I love it when we make stuff instead of buying…

You know, the reason you have trouble getting those buckets apart is the same reason a vacuum works so well, namely, VACUUM. When you have two items of the same dimensions, one inside the other, and try to pull them apart, you’re actually doing the work of a piston & “pulling” a vacuum between the two items.

In any case, the simple solution is, drill a couple of holes in the bottom (support) bucket, it makes pullin the top bucket off a piece of cake.

Holes only work if you don’t carer if one ain’t a bucket anymore :-))
