Yes! The Ultimate Dust Deputy is adaptable to all Midi and Mini Festool vacs. The new vacs do require you to rotate the systainer box 180 degrees.
By California law, Oneida Air Systems is required to provide advance notice to customers of potentially hazardous materials included in our products. This requirement is enforced regardless of how much of that material is present in the actual product.
The black, static dissipative resin used to create this cyclone separator contains carbon black, which is a chemical considered as "possibly carcinogenic to humans" (Group 2B) when the chemical is an airborne, particulate form. This form would not be typical of normal use of the cyclone, but the law requires this statement be provided regardless.
The part you are describing is the Festool CT vacuum - we do not sell that product, though you should be able to find it online fairly easily.
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.
