Had a few hours this weekend being wife had to go in to work to ensure payroll was completed & turned in first thing Monday morning. I purchased the cyclone a while back and really like it. My only compliant was it had a tendency to tip over being the suction was so strong. There was a article in my Shopsmiths Notes magazine with this carts plan in it. It is made out of a sheet of 3/4 inch plywood which I had left over from some other projects.

I wasn’t going to paint it but the pressure of posting a project here for my buddies was to great! LOL

I spray painted it gray with some old paint as well. I put 3 inch casters on here which roll very well over dust, wood chips and cords. This really makes it convenient to roll these around as one unit and from keeping it from tipping over. The cyclone works amazing it lives up to the hype of keeping 99% of dust and saw dust out of the vacuum keeping the filter perfectly clean.

Not fancy but effective anyone needing the plans let me know your e mail and I’ll send them to you.
Thx for all comments

Ken, I’ve got the same rig. I stacked the DD atop my shop vac, put wheels on it, but have found I can pretty well keep it in place, so just this morning fastened my hose in place a little better. It sometimes would pull off the DD when I over stressed it. I really like the DD for keeping the fine dust out of the air. Rigging up connections to everything has required some inventiveness and I’m not completely satisfied with them. How do you do it? Thanks, for posting this. If you’ve got ideas about connecting to the drill press and bandsaw, PM me.

Dang that is nice.

That is much a more complicated build than some old cutting board.

Good job,

That’s a great rig! Saw the same plans in shopnotes awhile back and prompty forgot about it. The photos here have inspired me to pull out the mag. I was thinking of putting a thien cyclone separator as opposed to the Dust Deputy attachment. Anyone have a favourite?

Great job on the cart!

I looked at the Oneida but finally went for the Supa Separator... it is an Australian heavy duty pre-separator designed for use with concrete cutting equipment and with the TWC I needed something industrial and a fair bit larger.

Looks good, Ken. I really like this design. I just bought a Dust Deputy last week. I haven’t used it yet. I also have the same Shopnotes mag and wanted to make this. But, I want it to fit under my work bench which is 35” high. I need to modify a bit. So, it works as good as everybody says?

Thanks for that it’s a great job, I posted a mini cyclone that I made & at present it’s free standing but its a chore moving it & the vac around so I’m going to build one of these thanks again
