    Maybe he means the industrial steel 10gal drum setup?

    Yes, thats the setup I was looking at. I have been spending a lot of time as of late thinking about my garage setup since its a main in the neck moving the dust hose from miter to table saw every 10 minutes. The least I am going to do it build a cart with a manifold and then add a dust deputy to that.

    Jason, here is a 20 gallon setup I made this weekend. I only have about 35 bucks into it over the cost of the Dust Deputy. Most of that was for the can and thumb screws. I am thinking about writing an article on the construction.

    Kurt that looks great! I would love to see an article on it since that looks like one of the designs I am considering. I have a bit of a space constraint but that doesn’t mean I can’t just use s small drum.

    That is a great setup Kurt!! You have found it works well and is easy to take on/off to be able to get rid of the dust, I assume?? Hard to beat $35 + dust deputy for being way more dust free…!!

    Jason – I am really thinking the metal dust deputy may be the best way to go if you want to avoid static…. Though I am curious if anti-static hoses are still necessary in that case…

    Call me crazy but I had my setup running for over an hour straight tonight and I didn’t get any static buildup. I know this because I purposely tried to get shocked and it didn’t happen. There are enough guys out there that talk about it that I know it happens just not to me yet.

    That is totally possible – it is definitely climate/season driven, though I know we definitely have good loads of static here in MN – all I need to do when it is cold is take my feet with socks on, rub them on the carpet a few times… and boom – great shock on the doorknob.

    That is why I went with the steel can. I figured it would dissipate the static the best.

    Speaking of steel can, where did you find yours from Kurt? Did you buy it or already have it or …?

    Not a dust deputy, but I saw Oneida offers a pretty impressive dust collector – anyone here happen to have experience with it?

    I have there bigger cyclone and love it, for that price I would spend a another 5-6 hundred more and get a full size cyclone.

    I’ve looked at those before but I agree with Dave, I would rather spend a bit more and get the full sized unit. The dust cobra units seem to be sort of like a shop vac on steroids.

    Holy crap $1200, Ouch!!

    I think that’s the sizes I’m going to go with, Dan posted his and it’s a lot like that too. There’s just no reason for me to get a bigger vac when combining it with a DD, As long as you get one with the HP of a big one. I found a little Rigid vac that’s like 4 gallon or so but with 5hp like their big 12 gallon one, It made it to my list of possibilities

    Always willing to learn .

    @supimeister I just noticed your question, I had not looked at this thread in a while I guess. I just bought a 20 gallon steel garbage can and made a new top. I used silicone on all of the seams in the can and at the handles. I gasketed the top and used silicone at the attachment of the Dust Deputy. I have used this a with my Dewalt thickness planer a lot over the last year and have had very little dust get into the shop vac I use with it, the only way much gets in the vac is when I do not empty the can when it is about 80% to 90% full. if you watch the Dust Deputy you can see when the can needs emptying as you will see a the dust exiting the cone.

    I definitely like your setup – seems really cost effective and definitely seems like it has been a solid addition for you

    I ran across this video on how to make an effective Simple Cyclone type Dust Collector. It looks good.

    Worked quite well. I like his blade mod as well.

    I wish I had seen that video when I was playing around with a Thien collector. So simple and so effective.

    BE the change you want to see.
