Time for a Shop Vac Upgrade... It doesn’t take long for the filter inside a shop vacuum to clog with dust. To prevent this, Oneida Air Systems designed its Dust Deputy kit — a small, plastic cyclone separator which directs most of the dust and chips into a five-gallon bucket. The kit attaches the cyclone directly to the side of the vacuum canister. But, as the bucket fills with chips, things can get unbalanced. This roll-around cart provides a single, stable platform for both a shop vacuum and the Dust Deputy.
