I have their xl version on my dust collector, and couldn't agree more.

The tools don't make the craftsman....

I must be the only person who didn't like his DD.

Actually it didn't remove hardly any. Everything still ended up in the shop vac.

Somethings not right about your setup....mine literally catches 99.95% of what goes throug mine. I measured the last time I emptied 30 gallons of sawdust out of the min, and there was slightly less than 1/4 cup in the bag....

Nope, though I did double check that. The problem was the debris wasn't falling out but rather being sucked back out while in mid-air. It took me a while to figure this out. And yes it was a shop vac, not a dust collector. Just a Ridgid 6.5 hp shop vac with apparently really good suction.

Interesting. The really good suction part shouldn't matter....i wonder if in some way yours was defective....wrong length ports or something.

I have mine hooked up to me Alto/Wap SQ10 vacuum. I have been working with some mdf latley...man thats some dusty stuff....and my DD is catching everything. I would call Oneida and check with them. That doesn't sound right that its not working.

I don't know how ( no offense) you could mess it up. All I did was pull mine out of the box, mount the dd to the lid and pluged the hoses in.
I don't even have a hose clamp or anything on them....mines only half put together and it works like a charm.

I had used smoke tubes (the same tubes used to fit test people with respirators) to check for leak & couldn't find any. After dealing with it for a few days, I just did away with the DD & barrel and its been sitting there for 2-years now. Maybe someday I'll get around to selling it.

Fair enough....I think your the first person I've ever heard of who didn't have great results from a DD

Yeah, I hadn't heard anyone else have issues either. I guess I'm just an anomaly :) The main reason I never worried about it was shortly after I stopped using it, I picked up a used Grizzly 1.5 HP Baby Cyclone for $175 and I've pretty much been using that for all my needs. Its a good unit, but I plan on upgrading to larger 2HP unit with my SP & CFM.

NOTE: I see where Grizzly has this unit closed out as they are doing away with the standard version for HEPA and low-noise versions.

Don't say that. my 4" dust deputy is in route. Showing up soon. Watched over 40 videos of folks that said that thing works... I don't have to clean my shop vac but once every year or so...sometimes more. That reason alone made me spring 240.00 for it and a few accessories.

Your just around the corner from me. Wanna sell your old one?

definitely something wrong with your setup. I toyed around with the idea of this vs a dust collection system then finally decided, ah I'll try it if it don't work onto the dust collection system for me. I built 3 red cedar adirondack chairs for our kids, a student desk for my son, and just finished a nightstand and bedroom table for my wife. With all of that sawing, sanding, routing, jointing, and then clean up afterwards, not a single speck of dust in my shopvac. Of course I did empty the DD about 15 times during the planing stage of the rough cedar.


If there is any leaks whatsoever, performance takes a MAJOR hit. Also FWIW, the only persons I ever seen writing about problems are those that didn't buy the kit, only the cyclone itself as a DIY project.

Just me being me and not trying to be you.

Dust Deputy old thread

Thanks. It never hurts to ask. I am going to buy the 2" Dust Deputy as well. Thought I would save a few bucks on it. Even if I needed to put a different shop vac on a dust deputy it would be worth it not having to clean those filters all the time. Last year I put up a 2" hose reel from Fast Cap and love that thing. It goes 25 feet into my shop and in seconds its rolled back up and out of the way.

I had a 20x28 external shop building that I built with fixed dust collection to all tools. 5 hp planer, shaper, radial saw, jointer, table saw, jointer, router table, even floor sweeps, it all vented outside to a 4'x4' gambrel roof Dust Barn. All of the tools had a dust gate that turned on the 220 volt collector. I built it all from scratch. Even the Blower. Fine Woodworking had the gates. Popular Woodworking had the first dust collector I built. Learned a lot about what not to do and how things will pile up and block the system.


My double car garage is now my shop. Yet I keep other stuff in it as well. Want the best dust options that fit. I can't wait to et that dust deputy installed and have full suction to the machines again and not clean the filters but once every year or so. Right now my shop vac works great for about 15 minutes than it starts slowing down as the filter gets clogged.
