Routing my test piece for raised panel doors with the Dust Deputy connected to the router cabinet and fence, I was sold on this dust collector. I’d give it more stars if I could. I had gone to Onieda’s website for more information and saw how the dust swirled around, when I saw it on mine I just started laughing thinking this thing is going to work. After routing 9 raised panels and emptying the canister once, total of about 6-7 gallons of sawdustl, it was time to look into the shop vac to see how much dust had gotten in there. There wasn’t enough to fill a teaspoon and the filter look very clean also.
Earlier in the week I routed the styles and rails for the cabinet doors and the filter on the shop vac was just caked with sawdust. I couldn’t see the pleats in the filter. That was it, I have to get one of the DD’s.
I had read some of the other reviews of the DD and was aware of the tipping problem of the unit, but I new that this was going to be dedicated to the router table so that wasn’t a concern. I had looked at getting just the cyclone, but after figuring out what I’d need to get it up and running along with time getting the stuff, spending the extra $30 was worth it. Everything hooked up with no problems. I am totally sold on the DD.
My router table is now complete (I think).
