Multi-Cyclone DIY Dust Deputy Design Kit

Use Oneida's tested DIY Design Plans to combine the power of three Dust Deputy cyclones into one amazing unit! Kit includes the anti-static cyclone separators, two hoses, reducers, and more. Bucket vacuums and waste container not included.

Build Your Own Super Cyclonic Dust Collector!

The Multi-Cyclone Dust Deputy DIY Kit gives you the supplies you need to build your own dust collection system. Using three of our patented cyclone separators in parallel, the Multi-Cyclone kit allows for higher airflow volume without sacrificing separation performance. This makes it ideal for shops with mutiple smaller vacuums or a single, more powerful vacuum.

This is a one-of-a-kind system for those who love to do it themselves! We provide the essential components and a detailed shop plan while you supply the rest!

Please Note: This kit requires your own materials and assembly. It is not sold as shown in the images. Bucket vacuums are not included, and can be found at your local box store.

Here's What You'll Need:

  • 3/4" Plywood or Medium Density Particle Board
  • Reinforced, airtight dust container with a lid at least 22" in diameter
  • Wet/Dry Shop Vacuum(s) - (We used Shop Vac® Bucket Max in our example)
  • 4" PVC piping (5" length) and a 90° PVC elbow fitting
  • 3/4" Foam Gasket Material
  • Assembly hardware (e.g. screws, bolts, nuts, washers, etc.)

Frequently Asked Questions
What vacuum do you recommend for the Dust Deputy?

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.

What type of dust bin works best?

You can use any shape or size container for your Dust Deputy cyclone. Keep in mind that the smaller the container, the more often you'll have to empty it.The dust container you provide must be able to be sealed airtight and must be strong enough to withstand the pressure created by your vacuum. For plastic buckets we recommend at least a 90 mil. wall thickness otherwise the container may collapse when in use.

Can you use this multi-cyclone design with a 2 hp system - or is that too strong?

Horsepower isn't the best indicator for the strength of a vacuum system. The better metric to look for is the CFM (airflow rating) of your vacuum. The multi-cyclone design is ideal for vacuum systems (not dust collectors) with a CFM rating of up to 250 CFM.

How do you fasten the conductive metal tape to the plastic cyclone?

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.

Can I use this cyclone with smoldering or abrasive debris?

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.
