The problem was the debris wasn't falling out but rather being sucked back out while in mid-air.
finally found out working with a bigger cyclone that the dust collection bin has to be airtight 100% or this will happen
6" inlet 7" outlet have a 3hp 4 bag and a 2hp 2 bag dust collectors on it to get it to work right

added a Clear Vue Mini CV06 with 2" pvc piping to the work bench and other locations for router, sanders and general shop clean up
Cyclones work really well once you get the bugs out

of course if you let the dust bin fill up then you will bypass on to the vac or the dust collectors

Just downloaded the Dust Deputy manual. It pretty much says that same thing in the manual. It's all about being air tight reducing friction and removing points that allows dust to collect. I learned not to glue my systems up as it allows for things to be easily unclogged when something weird happens and things get crossways in there. Was checking out yesterday where the system will be. Limited floor space it will be mounted up off the floor.

Quite the down size in shops! I hope the DD works for you. The hose reel sounds interesting. Do you have issues with the 2" hose clogging? Seems it would restrict flow.

Got the Dust Deputy roughed in this evening. Need to make some adjustments yet. It works fine right now but will be better when I get a 18x18x6" tall base made for it. Needed a piece of pipe about 3" longer than what I had laying around.


Some of the tools dust collection work better with a shop vac setup. More velocity. I have been using that 25 foot pool hose on that Fast Cap reel for almost a year now. It has not clogged in the hose. Just in the shop vac's wet and dry attachement I sweep the shop floor with. Will put a smaller dust deputy on the shop vac in a couple of weeks when the mad money is built back up.

I am looking forward to having max suction on that shop vac once the dust deputy is installed for that.

The 4" dust deputy I just installed to night is working fine. I have yet to give it good test with the resaw bandsaw but just cleaning up on the install sawdust and some leaves it was dropping it in the barrel. The 2" pool hose on the shop vac is much less hassle when vacuuming up the floor. I did some floor vacuuming with the 4" hose but it's like wollering a water buffalo around.

If your cyclone isn't working there's a problem with the setup. This isnt a handplane that takes experience and finess to make work correctly. This is simple laws of physics and some PVC pipe fitting/gluing. If it's not working it's a problem with the setup. I bought a cheap Chinese cyclone and it's working perfectly. There's just a trace of dust and lots of dog hair in my shop vac barrel. Filter is clean and tons of suckage.

Here's my thread:

I agree. I have a Rigid shop vac and a 30 gallon drum and I will have to empty the drum a couple of time before I even clean the filter, even then it isn't real dusty.

I keep a shop vac, a dust separator, and accessories on a rolling cart. I am very pleased with it. I plug it into my power tools as I use them, and it makes floor cleanup easy.

The dust separator is a "Cyclone", which I bought at Woodcraft. It seemed like the best match at the right price, based on the advice of the salesperson in the store. The Cyclone works well enough for me, but I would not be surprised if the Dust Deputy turns out to be a better product.

What I want to share is how my shop vac, dust separator and accessories fit on the rolling cart. See:
