Plans found in the latest issue of ShopNotes. Made some modifications to fit my size Shop Vac and to use a little less wood that the plans. Everything was cut from two sheets of 24×48” 3/4” ply from the local home center.

Got the Dust Deputy for my birthday. Works really well for my size of shop. I’m pretty impressed with it so far.

Hey that is great!

I just ordered a Dust Deputy this weekend and will probably need to make something like that.

You say it was in the ShopNotes? Is it the current issue?

Looks very practical. I have that ShopNotes I think.

Thanks for the info.

I will have to run out to the Barnes & Noble to check for it. I only get a couple of magazines by subscription anymore.

I used to get them all at one time or another.

Saw the plan… have the same Oneida system. Thanks for showing yours… I probably need to do the cart since I find I am now moving the dust collector everywhere. The system works really well for me.

I’ve been thinking about adding something like this to my shop, and this project looks very intriguing.

All of the pre-separators that I’ve seen elsewhere on this site use a 33-gallon metal garbage can. Which would be a bit unweildy in my garage shop. The 5-gallon bucket size would work much better.

But my question is: Is there loss of efficiency due to the smaller size of the 5-gallon bucket? And do you have to empty it before it’s full to keep the efficiency up?

Got the same collection system, works great. Like that you made the cart make more sense and use less material than the shop notes one. Same thing I’m looking to do.

Mean_Dean -

In answer to your question about loss of efficiency. I haven’t really noticed any loss from using the shop vac with or without the dust collection system. Works about the same either way. And I actually filled up the bucket and the cyclone the other day without realizing it – I just happened to turn it off at the right time – so I don’t think there is a noticable decrease in efficiency as the bucket fills up.

Hope this answered your question.
