Got this email today. Been holding out on getting the metal one. This design looks a little different than the metal one.

Any constructive thoughts? I’m going to put it in front of my 1 1/2 hp JET (w/a Wynn filter).

A month ago, I looked at the metal version and it was priced at 199. Seems to me that the list price of the plastic ($199) should be cheaper.

I have read several reviews that speak highly of the Super Dust Deputy. I would assume that they are referring to the older metal version.

I considered one and decided that I would research cheaper alternatives or build something.

I was hoping that the price would be less. Intro price is only $169. She said it’s supposed to be a heavy duty resin. Even stronger than their mini one. I have the mini one and love it…I thought about building something too, but I’ve talked myself (and my financial advisor ;) ) into letting me get this. Told her this was what was holding up production…and it worked!

You might want to get a copy of the current FWW (#232, I think). They did a comparison of some pre separators and while I’m not sure if that one was included, it still might be worth a look.

I wonder how this cyclone compare with the bigger one, for the same price, on E-bay

I believe that this one is too expensive.
I would mount my HF dust collector right on the top of it and use my existing cartridge filter on the exhaust.
I am sure that it would work well but I am not sure that it would be that much better than my existing solution.
( I have Thien separator in the trash can and a wok under the filter)

I just bought the steel version and installed it ( http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/3242 ).

So far, I am pretty happy with the performance, but wish I would have known this one was coming out.

Interesting. Looks like a slightly different design/configuration.
I wonder if the performance is equal/better/worse.

I believe that because of the integrated inlet ramp the performances should be better.
I really like the design but the price (plus shipping and handling) is just too high for simple plastic molding.
Right now it is $30.00 off, which just about pays for S&H.
Tempting!

They’re advertising 99%+ on separation. It does have the different design than the metal, but the price is the same. Doesn’t make sense. On sale, it’s $30 off so I’m not sure.

Well, I called them up and asked about the price. Said the metal one may go up a little bit, but he doesn’t think the plastic one would hit the $199 mark. Either way, I was hoping for a decent price difference. I would’ve bought one today if it was $140 or $150.

With shipping it comes to $201, so now I have to go look for lose change in the couch to see if I can muster this one.

CrazeeTxn, yes if it was a little bit less expensive I would buy one today also and I would mount it on my HF dust collector.
I believe that the combination would work very well.

I just sent this email to Oneida customer service:
We are several people on Lumberjock liking your new dust deputy and tempted to buy one but we believe that it is too expensive.
For around $150.00 I would buy one immediately.
Thank you.

Bert -

I’ll be curious what they get back to you with. I’m tempted to call back and hopefully get someone else who is willing to give more information other than what’s posted on the website.

When I talked to them last week, they did state that it should be considerably less since it was plastic. I understand the design change and all, but it’s still plastic.

I have been researching DC for a few years now I didn’t knnow about the thien baffel. I ended up with the E-bay cyclone
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cyclone-Separator-for-Dust-Collector-/270423194251?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ef67a7a8b&afsrc=1

when I got mine it was 125 shipped to the door. packed and built well. It works pretty good. Had I known about the thien Baffle I probable would have gone that route. If I was going to go better than the thien I would have gone clearview. this is what I would gotten and I am still thinking about it. http://www.clearvuecyclones.com/cv1800-series/33-cv1800-rh-cyclone-body-only.html

if you compare these to any thing out there well there is nothing to compare it to, not at there price point, I mean a true 5HP and a 15” impeller.
