Oneida is offering a see thru version of the Dust Deputy for $59 ( no bucket ) and free shipping.

Add the bucket and its $110.49 shipped.

Take a look:

I found a large computer mouse pad at an office supply place that makes a great gasket when I bought the cyclone only. Add a scrap of plywood, gasket and bucket and you are all set.

This was one of the best investments I made to keep my lungs, and the shop clean.

The Kit option with the bucket seems to be the best deal, you also get a 4’ of hose, extra bucket, and mounting hardware.

I’m thinking seriously about one of these. Thanks for the endorsement.

It looks like an excellent investment for a WWkr with a small shop or a dedicated device for a special requirement.
I remember a “moderator” on a Canadian forum really going off about the president of Oneida a couple of years ago saying he didn’t know his technology and or overstated the capaciity of his machines.

I wonder what he will say when he sees this video?

Thanks for the review. Sounds great, I’m gonna grab one of these. Worth 60 bucks to save the lungs.

110.49 – 59.00 = $50 for a bucket?? I think I’ll get one from HD for $5.

I don’t think you will get the separation of dust from air that the rest of us are hoping for but 5 bucks for and empty pail is not a prudent purchase either. <g>

If you check out the two offers you get the Dust deputy, two pails a modified lid, the hose, clamps, screws, etc for $99.00 or you can just buy the cyclone alone for $59.00.

I took another look at the $59.00 special, you do not get any hardware to mount the cyclone to a home made lid, or hardware to secure the lid to the bucket. When I got my metal version last year they provided hardware.

When you consider the time to go and get hardware, cost of gas, furustration, etc that $99 kit looks better and better.

So how does the $169.00 dust deputy compare performance wise to a shop made baffle separator like a Thien cyclone?

saw this in a magazine and thought it a great idea. Now my wife bought me one for my upcoming birthday. I was looking at the clearvue version, but i like how this attaches by a hose to the vac— i can upgrade to any larger shopvac when needed and am notm limited to the models supported by the clearvue design.

Have your say...
