Dust Deputy Cart

I was inspired by postings I saw on Lumber Jocks to build my own Dust Deputy Cart. This works flawlessly. I use it for dust control on my table saw, jointer, shaper, and for vacuuming in my shop. This is very similar to others described on this site. If you recognize your design, I thank you for your help…......

The dust falls into a plastic bin in the bottom compartment under the dust deputy. All my attachments are stored on board. It takes me a few weeks or a month to fill it up. I got the idea from another post on Lumber Jocks to put a file folder bin in the compartment to catch the dirt. It holds about eight gallons of dust and debris. Feel free to e-mail me if you want some dimensions.

This looks great, may have to do the same. If you have some sketches with dimensions that would be great. Any issues with the seal between the cyclone and the dust bin? How is that connection done?

This is a rough sketch. I sized the cart to fit the vacuum, the Dust Deputy, and the container to collect the dust. I used 1/4 inch flat head machine screws to hold the dust deputy in place. I counter sunk them (drill and countersink the holes before you assemble) and turned them up so the countersunk heads would not interfere with the bin when I move it into and out of the compartment. I used rabbit and dado joints. The compartment below the Dust deputy must be air tight so I used Loctite adhesive caulking for the joints when I put it together. I also used Loctite Adhesive caulking to seal the Dust Deputy to the plywood along with the machine screws. For the door I used a piano hinge, weather stripping, and latching toggle clamps I got from Amazon.

Here are pictures of the Dust Deputy bolted to the top of the dust collection compartment. The dust collection compartment with the counter sunk machine screws. The dust compartment door with the dust collection bin, note the weather stripping around the door. The weather stripping around the top of the bin is to create a seal so the dust doesn’t fill up around the outside of the bin inside the compartment.

this looks great, and I can always use another table top in the shop, but just a thought,
why not build another top on this for a down draft sanding table,everything is all right there.

one possible addition to consider is this i-socket outlet. I have one hooked up to my miter saw station and it works great

Here’s a link to buy one

You have a great suggestion there. I thought about one of those guys but just haven’t pulled the trigger on it yet.
