In my last video I did a review of the Dust Deputy and showed how effective it is. ​This prompted several people to ask me about what size shop vacuum is necessary to work with the Dust Deputy. So in this video, I decided to explore that question and share the results with you.

​​Even if you are not planning on using a Dust Deputy, you might find the information helpful in your decision to buy a shop vacuum.

If you have not seen how effective it is, check out my previous video where I review the Dust Deputy.​

I do not usually save bloopers or even load them in the computer. Normally I delete them in the camera to save memory and reduce the files for editing. But I decided to save one for you at the end of the video:)

​I hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful.

​Your friend in the shop-

Thank you for sharing, I had been steering clear of the dust deputy, but thanks to your review, I will be
installing one on my vacuum cart to replace the thein separator that lets too much dust through. I have
a medium size vac, so it should work OK. Darn, just when I was thinking you were almost perfect you
show that you also have those moments.

Thanks for the video! I got a shop vac a long time ago and used it for a few years. They are handy and don’t take up as much room as a dust collector.
