This is probably better suited for FOG I like to come here for inspiration so I thought I should give some love back. I loved the idea of the Dust Deputy for my CT 22 but couldn’t justify $250 for one specially made for systainer. I copied this off a few guys over at FOG and made the platform out of some scrap plywood. I did go with the $99 version of the dust deputy because by the time I priced out the extra trips to the store and the buckets, I was only saving about $10 or so – especially with a 25% off coupon from Rockler.

These guys are great for picking up plane shavings and other chips before clogging up the expensive Festool vacuum bags.

Hi Shawn:

Nice job with the dust deputy and Festool dust extractor. I was curious if the dust deputy will preform with the dust extractor control set at the various levels or do you have to operate it at full throttle? I have the same dust extractor and have been thinking about adding the dust deputy.

Hey OldTimer,

I’ve used it on the tortoise and the hare setting with equal success. The Festool stuff has so much suction that it’s hard to make it quit. I used it as is, where is on everything – router, sanders, track saw, etc. I’ve read it might be a problem with the planer but that’s not a tool I ever intend to purchase. It’s really help with the clean up of plane shavings – that’s really where I see the benefit.
