Home made Dust Collector

39 days ago by gotnonickname | 12 comments »

While trying to figure out how to afford a new cyclone dust collector, I started looking at what was available as single components. The Oneida Super Dust Deputy came up and that`s all I needed to get the project motor started. Since I re-kindled my love of woodworking, I have been using a Fein vac and a Dust Deputy kit for all my dust collections needs. This has worked well, but not the greatest with the planer and tablesaw. So when I started this project, I was looking to create a system wi...

My Super Dust Deputy Review

My Super Dust Deputy Review

164 days ago by Garth | 2 comments »

I upgraded my shopvac & Dust Deputy to a Souped up Harbor Freight Dust Collector. With that, I got the Super Duputy. Attached are some pictures that show how much dust was collected in the bin by the cyclone and how little dust got into the bag of the dust collector. Needless to say, I think the pictures pretty much tell the story of how well it worked. More information on the system is here.

Plastic Super Dust deputy

Plastic Super Dust deputy

I replaced my rockler dust seperator with the Super Dust Deputy. I just finished setting it up to what I think is the most efficent way. I had it for over a month and I couldn’t figure away to set it up, I ended up seperating the Dust collector motor and hanging it from the wall over the 6” dust port of the SDD. I ordered a 5” hose from Penn State cut it in half ran one from the SDD to my main PVC ducting and the other to the dust collector. I’m using a HF dust collec...

Poor customer service at Oneida Air Systems

Poor customer service at Oneida Air Systems

936 days ago by Kirko | 26 comments »

I was initially happy with the product until I noticed the cardboard drum had collapsed, since then my experience with Lisa Barone and customer service for Oneida has been very disappointing. After being told the cardboard drum should not have collapsed they refused to replace it. I purchased the steel replacement drum and lid early in November, I did not receive it, 2 weeks later when I contacted Ms. Barone she told me it will ship out that day and gave me an incorrect tracking number. A mo...

Dust Deputy Delux Kit

Dust Deputy Delux Kit

1021 days ago by Andy123 | 4 comments »

I received the kit today and I was excited to try this sucker out. (No pun intended….Okay maybe a little) The kit had all of the bolts, washers and nuts. It went together easily, but the directions were not perfectly clear. The only complaint of assembly is that there was not enough copper tape included to ground the system as suggested. I took the system to my shop and hooked it up to my Shop vac. The cyclone’s connections were tapered so connecting to my vac was easy. I cleaned ...

Very poorly assembled

Very poorly assembled

1052 days ago by GaryL | 21 comments »

I ordered 2 of the Oneida Dust Deputies to set up on two different shop vacs since they were on sale for $39.Opened them up and the tops on both of them were a bit skewed. I pressed on the section that looked like it was not on all the way and POP, off it came. Looked at the second one and barely gave it a tap and …...bummer. I kinda had to laugh because it was not a total surprise after lilredweldingrod’s reviewI was hoping they had remedied this fault by now. After a close...

Onieda Dust Deputy

Onieda Dust Deputy

I’ve been using my Dust Deputy for several months now and feel it is time to give it a review. The theory is very sound and as long as the plastic stays together it works as advertised. BUT I can’t keep the top on. The glue at the factory failed, the epoxy failed and the “special glue from HD was no better. Evidently the plastic that it is made from is impervious to any kind of glue to keep this sucker together. I complained to their service department and was told to get th...

Dust Deputy with bigger bucket

Dust Deputy with bigger bucket

1312 days ago by westerndf | 6 comments »

So I have had the dust deputy for about 2 years and was using the 5 gallon buckets that came with the kit. I got tired of emptying the buckets during planning so I searched and found the perfect fit. It was a 32 gallon container from Lowes and its the perfect match. I have attached the dust deputy to the bucket and was concerned that the suction would be impacted negatively but was positively surprised that it worked just as good if not better that before. I say better because I don’...

Dust Deputy

Dust Deputy

As you look at the advertising, Oneida seems to make a pretty outrageous claim concerning the efficiency of it’s Dust Deputy, they claim it captures 99% of the dust. In case you don’t know, the Dust Deputy is a mini cyclone that fits on a 5 gallon bucket lid which acts as a particle separator for your shopvac. I have been interested in this claim, and cautious, because I am interested in good dust collection for my shop. I collect as much dust at the source as possible, this is...

Dust Deputy for Router Table

Dust Deputy for Router Table

1628 days ago by dhg | 9 comments »

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 s...
