Here is my Shop Vac, Dust Deputy, and an improved bucket/drum on a mobile stand. Before this, I had the shop vac and hoses just laying around somewhere in the shop sometimes attached to the dust deputy 5 gallon bucket, sometimes not. This project was inspired by JayCustomCreations on youtube but with less flair and I needed to use up some plywood off cut pieces. I also upgraded from a 5 gallon bucket to a 15 gallon bucket/drum with a nice addition of a easy to remove locking lid. Added some 1” swivel castors to move around. I’ll be adding a bungee cord around both the shop vac and drum to keep them stable (amazingly, I have not a single bungee cord right now). This is part of an ongoing project of organizing my shop. 74 more projects to go :)

Looks good man. Yeah, you’ll probably wanna pick up a few bungee cords. I’d hate to see what a mess there’d be if that drum decided to take a header off the cart in the middle of a job.

Looks great, does the larger drum have any negative effects on the operation?

I’ll know soon, Norm. Have routing to do this weekend on my next project with grooves via router. With my limited science mind, I would say no negative affects. I had to do a similar thought when it came time to do my Thein Baffle. I “think” anything below the vortex, as in reasonable volume, should not affect air circulation.

I’ve got that same barrel and it works great. It’s manageable size when full and the locking lid seals great.

Phast..I picked up the container with locking lid at a place that works on chemicals. They had all sorts of sized drums with locking lids. Got this one for free and same for my Thien Baffle 55 gallon barrel.
