Review

I used the latest version of Oneida’s Dust Deputy extensively over several months as I framed, drywalled, and trimmed my basement, and it saved me from many shop-vacuum filter cleanings.
The Dust Deputy is a mini- cyclonic separator that traps about 95 percent of all debris in its plastic bucket before it reaches the attached vac. It reduced my filter cleaning by about 80 percent. I experienced two minor hassles. First, the dust port on top of the separator was too small for my vacuum’s hose, so I had to rig it together with tape. When screwed to the side of my vacuum, the Dust Deputy proves awkward to move around and tippy as it begins to fill up. If I had it to do over again, I’d mount the Dust Deputy and my vacuum to a plywood base, and then install the casters for a more stable unit that rolls easily. —Tested by Bill Krier
