Topic tags/keywords: dust deputy question

I’m looking for help to make my own dust deputy
the product looks nice, but $60 for that plastic is too much

I found some dimensions in the internet but I am not sure if they are right because I don’t have one real thing to check

1.-height of the cyclone: 9.25”
2.-diameter at the top of the cyclone: 5.75”
3.- diameter at the base of the cyclone: 3” flange is 5”
4.- how far the pipe goes into the cyclone from the top for the exit: 3.75 into cyclone 2” out the top

tanks in advance!
