    Hi Guys

    I have (and love) the Dust Deputy with the 5 gallon bucket, but find it fills up too fast.

    Do any of you know a source of bigger buckets that use the same 12″ lid? I dont want to build something else, I just want options to swap between depending on the situation

    Is it possible to adapt the 12″ lid to a larger bucket and lid? 5 gal would be a real PITA to be emptying all the time.

    The bucket I am using now is 120 liters and it’s too small IMO.

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    I mean, I can attach the cyclone to anything really, including a 55gallin drum, but am hoping that someone makes a drum with the same size lid as a standard 5 gallon, so I can swap to whatever I want

    Get one just like mine and you will love it. Its just a larger version of the dust deputy, works like a charm.

    Given that I also have limited space, thats a lot of money to save a few emptyings… cool though it is

    here is a Dust Deputy I set up on a 20 gallon trash can. You could just cut a hole in the lid of a can and attach a bucket with the bottom cut off to the lid to make it work. I made a new lid with a gasket and thumb screws to hold it on so I could keep it air tight. for the separator to work best the canister must be air tight. You could probably do the same thing with a plastic barrel.

    That looks good. How does it seal? Does it loose a lot of pull?

    No matter how good you think you are you there is always someone that is better, or can teach you something.

    I cut a rabbet in the lid with a router that matched the diameter of the can then installed a rubber gasket in the rabbet. I also silicone all of the seams and gaps in the can and sealed everything as I screwed or bolted it together. It actually pulls really well, I use it with my planer a lot and it keeps things fairly clean. It is nice to be able to run a lot of material without having to empty. I have also used it on my router table with good results.

    That’s what I’m talking about! The bigger the barrel; the less often you need to empty it.

    As long as the seal is intact, there will be no loss of separation ability.

    I haven’t seen anything like that Eric.
    You might look into one of those poly drums. almost the same footprint as a 5gal bucket. check craigslist or just buy them online.

    Oneida may have a lid to swap the Dust Deputy cyclone you have by removing it from the current lid and re-bolting it to the new lid that will fit a larger container. Give them a call. Won’t hurt.

    I have seen 6 gallon buckets that are a little taller but everything else was the same. I am pretty sure some kid d of plaster product came in it. Its 20% more volume.

    Edit I just googled 7 gallon bucket and found this

    I gotta get one of these things, I keep saying I am but then hold back.

    Maybe because of the extra hose and hunting down the right adapters.

    i used mine for grinding the concrete floor of a garage. Mu mistake was not emptying it often. It was so heavy when I quit, that I could not lift it. I ended up taking a couple of buckets out of it then it was fine. just using a regular shop vac kept he thing filling and very little dust escaping.

    no water, just the weight of the dust kept it settling in the bottom of the can. The dust deputy really works well to separate the particles, even fine dust.

    You can get fibre barrels too. Princess Auto and the like carry them sometimes. I have seen taller ones with a smaller diameter also.

    Check at some of your local restaurants. I got a few 7 gal size one time that had pickles in them.
    Might check at bakeries too
