I made a vertical mobile dust collection cart to house the shop vac and dust deputy that make up my primitive dust collection system. Looks complicated with hoses going everywhere, but it’s really not.
Had to bungee the bucket down, otherwise it would topple over from the suction. There is a hose union fitting at the top of the post, where I can connect the hose that goes to the source of dust. I did that so that I wouldn’t be pulling on the dust deputy and bucket. Made brackets to hold the 2 1/2 in accessories, as well as the 1 1/4 in accessories from the little shop vac that I’m not using anymore, with an adaptor.
Brackets to hang extra hose from, wheels to roll it around if I need to, and a cord wrap on the backside.
The only thing I don’t like is having to reach under the shelf to turn on the vacuum. The buttons are right in the center of the top, and I have short arms. But they are big buttons, so I can flail around until I hit the right one!
If I had a bigger shop, I probably would have made this into a side by side cart, but space is very limited. This works very well, though.
