Ok…so, I had been shopping around for a dust collection system for my shop vac. I kept having to clean my filter and I was really getting sick of it. I have an older Rigid shop vac and I started a bathroom remodel.
I’ve read about several dust collection systems….both good and bad. I heard really great things about Oneida Dust Deputy, but also that you get what you pay for with cheap plastic. I looked at Grizzly but didn’t see anything to attach to my shop vac (but maybe I missed something). I saw some “do it yourself” models that I could build myself, but I have enough on my list already. A friend recommended Clear Vue and raved about them. They just came out with the Mini CV06 and it was on sale. From what I read, they make a great product (maybe a bit pricey), its made in the USA and their customer service was supposed to be great. Since it was on sale, I bit the bullet and bought the thing. I changed the filter in the shop vac, hooked up the Mini and WOAH….does this thing work!! There was absolutely NOTHING in my shop vac! I mainly vacuumed up dust from sheet rock, tile dust and misc. trash, which is the result of my bathroom remodel. I can’t say anything about other products…..but this one was worth every cent I paid!
Later, I may buy a few others and connect them to a barrel for my shop…..but that will be after the project list gets more managable.
I hope I never have to change my shop vac filter again! I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for portable, powerful shop vac dust collection! Here is the link if you are interested in learning more: www.clearvuecyclones.com (just look for Mini CV06)
