You'll want to apply the tape so that all three openings on the cyclone are connected by a 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.
- Apply tape over the edge the cyclone's outlet by 1/4".
- Run tape down the outlet, across the top of the cyclone, and down the side of the cyclone.
- Make sure that the tape overlaps a bolt hole on the cyclone's bottom flange.
- Apply tape over the edge of the cyclone's flange by 1/4".
- Cut the remaining tape off.
- Apply second portion of tape over the edge of the cyclone's inlet by 1/4"
- Connect the second portion of tape to the first, making sure that they overlap with eachother.
- Smooth down any wrinkles in the tape so that it all lies flat against the surface of the cyclone.
- When mounting the cyclone to your dust bin's lid, the washers should rest directly on the conductive tape where it was run over the bolt in step 3.
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.
The router hood includes a universal base plate that features multiple screw-hole patterns to fit nearly any portable router available on the market today. We provide a convenient, printable template (see Installation Instructions) that can be used to verify base plate compatibility. The table below lists specific make/models that work with our Router Hood.
Please Note: This specific method of dust collection does not allow the router hood to fit most trim routers

We've heard from many customers who've had great success using a simple Wallpaper Roller to smooth out their foil tape, giving a very smooth, clean look on your ducting. The roller helps smooth out air bubbles and crinkled marks while making it easier to get those hard to reach places on hanging ductwork.
We do not carry this product but it can be found easily at your local hardware store or home renovation outlet.
The total length will depend on what size you order. We offer light-duty pipe (26 gauge) in lengths of 24" and 60", and heavy-duty pipe (24 gauge) is available in 48" lengths.
You can view all of the snap-lock piping at this link: oneida-air.com/ductwork/standard-ducting/straight-piping.
