Dust Deputy Dust Collection System
The Dust Deputy dust cyclone is the perfect addition to any shop vac, eliminating virtually all the dust particles from your shop without clogging the filter or compromising the suction on your machine. The Dust Deputy can turn any vacuum into a cyclonic device that clears the air, but keeps 99% of dust out of your shop vac.
Dust gets trapped in the barrel of this dust separator, instead of inside the vacuum. Centrifugal force sucks debris out of the air and into the bucket, making this dust collection system a cost-effective means of cleaning your workspace without putting undo strain on your shop vac. There is never any loss of suction, decreased air flow or clogged filters. The Dust Deputy industrial dust collector can be hooked up to any model vacuum by accommodating many different size hoses and couplings, without the hassle of having to track down the right sized connection.
The Dust Deputy vacuum dust collector is the perfect addition to any woodworking shop or workspace to ensure easy clean-up and dust-free air.

When I ordered this I knew it had to work better than the vacuum alone. My shop vac got used mainly for getting sanding dust from the lathe and I had to dump it weekly and vacuum the filter every 2 or 3 weeks. Now I only need to vacuum the hepa filter to clean it every 6 months or so. I empty the vacuum collector at the same time but there is usually next to nothing in it. Only the finest of dust seems to pass through the cyclone and it gets caught in the hepa filter. It works well enough I'm saving my pennies to get the larger on for my shop 1hp collector.

I have a small basement shop and wanted to improve my dust collection. I bought this unit and hooked it to my Ridgid vac. It works amazingly well. Mind you, you will want to build some sort of base or cart for it, as it tends to tip over. Otherwise it is an excellent product. No more vac filter cleaning!
