Will the Dust Deputy cyclone work if my tool has its own fan blower?

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

How do I troubleshoot an air leak with my Dust Deputy cyclone?

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.
