Sure have, and it works good with an ROS…..BUT, it’s horrible for your vacuum. It clogs the filters and isn’t easy to clean out. All of those baking soda carpet fresheners are also horrible for your house vacuum.

I do believe I cobbled up an old Kirby
vacuum to work as a dust extractor for
a band saw at some point.

If you have an upright to waste (gathering dust… proves it works) then why not… till it dies. But if the missus uses it in the house, a cheap shop vac would be a better alternative

i got my ole gal a new one, and brung home a gal to use if for her, lol, once every two weeks the gal hits it hard, works for me.
now shes ragging on me to clean up the shop, says the dust bothers here when she visits, so being the pc guy i am, told her not to visit so often and it wouldn’t bother, her, looking for a place to sleep now.
lol

Actually… might sound stewpid… you might be able to front end it on a Dust Deputy (or shop built cyclonic front end) as all they need is a sucker and thereby keep the vac filters relatively clean.

Now that is good advice for a complaining mother in law…

Tony, If you do, to give the old cleaner some longevity I’d encourage you to use a small cyclone as a precollector something similar to this one…
