Does anyone out there know of a good plan to retrofit a super dust deputy to a Delta 50-850? I’d like to mount the blower directly above the seperator, and have a direct line from the exhaust to the filter and bag. Any suggestions would be helpful.

It seems to me that the Delta 50-850 could be turned on its side and its inlet directly connected to the Super Dust Deputy. A length of solid pipe or flex hose could then be connected from the Delta 50-850 outlet and run to the bag housing inlet.

The Super Dust Deputy could be mounted atop a dust collection chamber. This is a sealed box with a door that when closed is sealed (dust collection chamber) and houses the dust collection bin. The removable dust collection bin would set inside the sealed dust collection chamber box. Window sash locks could be installed to pull the door tightly closed against some weather stripping around the perimeter of the door. I used felt weather stripping tacked to the door. The bottom of the funnel of the Super Dust Deputy would then be secured over a hole cut in the center of the top of the dust collection chamber. The connection between the Super Dust Deputy and the top of the dust collection chamber should also be sealed to avoid performance robbing prevent leaks.

I found that placing a gasket around the rim of the dust collection barrel so that it contacts the top of the dust collection chamber greatly reduces the amount of debris that otherwise escapes the dust collection bin, landing in the dust collection chamber. I used a bicycle inner tube for this gasket.

If you go with a dust collection chamber, some switched under-cabinet LED lighting could be mounted outside the dust collection chamber and a sealed polycarbonate sheet covering the LED lights would illuminate the inside of the dust collection chamber. A view port also cut into the top of the dust collection chamber covered with a sealed piece of polycarbonate could then allow a view into the dust collection bin to know when it needs emptied.

Have your say...
