The Dust Deputy can be used with any make, model, or size wet/dry vacuum with an inlet ranging from 1.5" to 2.5" in size. We recommend that it has an airflow rating of at least 50 CFM to ensure optimum dust separation performance.
No. The Super Dust Deputy cyclone would be a better choice for your 650 CFM system.
It is 30.75" to the very top of the tapered elbow fitting on the Dust Deputy Deluxe (with a single bucket and no casters).If you are requesting this measurement to fit the product underneath a table, or into a custom built cart, we recommend leaving an additional 0.5" of space above the cyclone (31.25" total) to accommodate variations in hose connections.
There is very little difference between the two versions of the Dust Deputy Deluxe. The primary difference is that the "A" model contains higher-end, static conductive, hose components to prevent electrical charges from building up and discharging. See table below for more details:
|Hose Length||5-1/2 feet||3 feet|
|Hose Material||Static Dissipative||Static Conductive|
|# of Hose Elbows||x1||x2|
|Hose Elbow Material||Static Dissipative||Static Conductive|
Oneida Air Systems no longer produces the older #AXD000004 model, but some may still be sold online through other retailers (Woodcraft, Amazon, Ebay, etc.).
The hardware (gasket, nuts, bolts,etc.) is stored in between the two buckets included in the kit.
You'll want to apply the tape so that all three openings on the cyclone are connected by a continuous, conductive path. When doing so, make sure that the tape is wrapped over the edge of the cyclone's ports and that it overlaps the bolt hole on the cyclone's bottom flange. See instructions and diagram below for more.
In most cases, yes - but the cyclone's efficiency will vary based on whether your vacuum is also turned on.
The Dust Deputy cyclone needs a consistent airflow rate to "spin" the dust out of the airstream; If your tool's fan blower is pushing air in while your vacuum is also sucking air out, this can disrupt the airflow rate and reduce the cyclone's separation performance.
In many cases, the fan blower on tools (such as planers) cannot be turned off. If that is the case for you, try collecting your dust with the vacuum turned off. In doing so you will be creating a positive pressure system as the tool's fan blower pushes air through the Dust Deputy cyclone. This method may not work with every vacuum
Even a small leak can significantly affect the overall separation performance of the cyclone. Here are some common places where leaks may occur:
- Along the lid of the dust bin
- Hose adapter fittings on the cyclone
- Where the cyclone is mounted to the lid
- Along the length of your hose
If you can't audibly pinpoint where the leak might be coming from, one of the simplest ways to check for air leaks is with a smoke test. Kits for this can be found at most local hardware stores (usually near the HVAC sections), but it's simple to make a small DIY version or even use incense sticks at home.
With the shop vacuum turned on, simply carry the smoke-stick along the perimeter of your cyclone system and check for where the smoke is drawn into the cyclone. That will show you where your air leak is.
No. This cyclone is designed for use with light debris such as wood dust. For heavy-duty applications with highly abrasive or smoldering materials, we recommend our steel, Heavy-Duty Dust Deputy kits instead.
The waste bin is not available as a standalone item, but if you are an existing owner of the Dust Deputy then we can readily offer you a replacement for any damaged components. Please contact our service department to order.
