Dust Deputy

Posted by / Uncategorized

Some time back I had received a dust deputy as a present and just got around to setting it up.  If you aren’t familiar with it, the idea is that it deposits the materials wood/metal swarf in a bucket rather than in the vacuum itself.  The bucket is much easier to clean out than a typical oddly shaped shopvac.  The overall picture of the setup is below.

So I ran my first test cleaning up swarf out of my mill enclosure.  This was a tough test because the swarf is very small and light.  I thought the flakes might bypass the deputy and go right into the vacuum.  Well, the result is amazing:

The vacuum is empty:

And the bucket is full!
