I’ve been thinking about getting a dust deputy for a while now and was researching some diy solutions.

Until i found one on aliexpress.com

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Cyclone-dust-collector/1289166078.html

I ordered it for $22 shipped. Not a bad deal I think but I’ll post a review when I get it. Unfortunately w/ up to 20 days shipping it’s LITERALLY on a slow boat from china.

I’m not affiliated w/ alibaba or aliexpress in anyway.

I see one thing I like right now – the dust ports look like 55 mm (2.2”), which should take 2 1/2” hose with a hose clamp. The step weird sizes they have on the original Dust Deputy suck! I know it is supposed to allow connecting up the hose directly but it doesn’t do that well AND you have trouble connecting anything standard to them.

Looking forward to your review.

Keep us posted on how well it works.

The Oneida Dust Deputy body is available at Woodcraft for $40 and it is made in the USA. I am curious how well the import version works.

Update-
unfortunately I had to cancel my order as I got a message from the seller that they can’t ship it to the US.

I’m not sure if they really couldn’t ship it (since they had shipping cost to the US) or if they just wouldn’t do it because I was not ordering in bulk…

story over :/

Or it is trademark/patent infringing. That looks like a clone.

That’s a bummer! We can only speculate as to why they didn’t ship.

Says to …check with your customs about any import charges you may have to pay.

Do you know how much if any there are of charges? OR do you know how to check?

Amazon has the chinese version for $35.99 with free shipping. I was also looking at aliexpress and wondering whether to give it a try, Ali has multiple offerings, some for the old version and some for the new improved version.

Don’t we get enough cheap Chinese junk imported to us without special ordering Chinese junk?

It’s hard to buy some things that aren’t made in China.

Thanks for proving my point guys.

This post was made with custom made computer from MainGear, a USA company. And if you think I’m stupid, yes I know it probably contains some parts from China.
