Topic tags/keywords: dust collection

Is this even possible and still work effectively? I have the Oneida dust deputy in conjunction with my shop vac. However I’m thinking of upgrading to the wall mounted dust collection system and want to keep my deputy. I’m guessing that I’ll have to convert the deputy to a 55 gallon trash can with a rigid platform to keep it from buckling under vacuum. I would like to hear anybody comments on this somewhat perplexing question. Thanks in advance.

Do you have the 2.5” or 4” Dust Deputy? And are you going to a 2.5” or 4” vac?

I have the 2.5” deputy and like to go with the G0710 1 HP Wall Hanging Dust Collector.

Brandon:

Interesting questions.

I have both the Dust Deputy (to a shop vac) and the Super DD (to a 1.5 hp single stage DC).

My guess is that you really won’t gain that much from the proposed upgrades – the DD can process only so many CFM. My guess is that the plastic can withstand the suction; though, this is only a guess.

Call Oneida – I doubt there’s a question they haven’t been asked.

My recommendation is to purchase the SDD, and keep the DD on the vac. The SDD is a great addition – worth every penny.

i would bet.. the suction would be too much force to let anything ‘cyclone’ down the DD on even a 1 HP machine. you may have to go the thein baffle route, like i plan on doing.

I just did a search on your proposed idea and that just may be the way to go. I was trying to get away with keeping the original DD just I didn’t want it to go to waste. Maybe I’ll sell it…..or keep it for another application who knows.

it will never work right. If you choke a DC from 4”-2.5” The suction will fall way off.

I have my single-stage 1.5hp (Delta) DC with the impeller sitting atop a SDD – all dust flows through the SDD first, then through the impeller to the filter – I get amazing results: the new cost for all parts is $915: the SDD is about $275, the Delta is about $475 – I have Wynn Nano (0.5 micron) filters which round-out the cost. For the money, this is an amazing setup. You can use 5” pipe on the equipment side, and this links to the 6” outfeed to the impeller. My pictures are too large to insert – if you’re interested I can mail it to you.
