DIY Workshop Dust Collection System

Using the Oneida Cyclone Dust Deputy, a 20 gallon Eagle container and my old Craftsman shop vac to create a DIY mobile workshop dust collection system. The system uses a 20 gallon dust storage container versus the normal 5 gallon container to provide added storage capacity between emptying. All mounted on a mobile cart having large wheels to enable mobility around the shop, garage or yard and still be able to roll easily over floor obstruction such as air hoses, extension cords or debris on the floor.

    Radical Jack, thanks for watching and I appreciate the long distance comment from New Zealand 🇳🇿

  21. Great video. Where did you get the remote control starter switch? Thanks

  22. James May, I got it online FastCap RCV-3. It wasn’t anything special; today you can buy many versions of remote wireless electrical outlet switches; just check the amp load rating. I wasn’t really concern since I do not run my vac for extremely long period.

  23. Thanks and I am going to use some of your cast design modified to my ezuipment.

  24. Hey Robert, Thanks for a nicely made, informative video. Thanks for using classy music. When I’m going through a dozen videos looking something up and video makers are putting some loud distractive music on there it wears me out. Nice design! God bless.

  25. Me again. I’m trying to figure out an EASY way to use water as a filter for a final filtration in a system. I was thinking of the “rainbow” vacuum system but I didn’t want to get too carried away with this idea. Any thoughts on a water filter?
