    Comments about Oneida Molded Dust Deputy Kit With Two 5-Gallon Plastic Buckets :

    This does work well at capturing most of the sawdust prior to reaching my shop vacuum. The reason for the two stars are lack of quality control and customer service. When I opened the box, most of the mounting hardware was missing. Since I wanted to use this right away, I just purchased the needed hardware. My local Woodcraft would surely have exchanged it, but they did nothing wrong and there is the inconvenience of driving back to the store. I did register this at the Oneida website and left poor marks on the warranty survey. Additionally I entered comments as to exactly what was wrong. They must not review any of the warranty registrations as I heard nothing from Oneida. Then I called their customer service line and received no answer. Finally, I sent an email to their customer service and again received no reply. In the end I was able to make a functioning cyclone. This purchase was made after reviewing and reading many reviews of different cyclones. I was able to deal with the missing hardware, but not the lack of customer service. This will be my last purchase of any Oneida products.

    Comments about Oneida Molded Dust Deputy Kit With Two 5-Gallon Plastic Buckets :

    I use the Dust Deputy with a wall mounted shop-vac. The Dust Deputy is free standing on the floor beneath the vac. With the wheels attached exactly as per instructions, the Dust Deputy attached to the buckets is highly unstable an easily falls over. This is primarily because of the heavy, mostly inflexible hose connecting the shop-vac to the Dust Deputy. I must use it without the wheels and sitting flat on the floor which means I have ruined the second bucket by drilling holes in it. It does work superbly in collecting dust & wood chips exactly as advertised.

    Comments about Oneida Molded Dust Deputy Kit With Two 5-Gallon Plastic Buckets :

    To begin, nothing negative I will say here should reflect on Woodcraft. When I had a problem with this Oneida Dust Deputy Kit, even after it was out of warranty (Way too short 90 days, BTW IMHO.), Woodcraft offered to replace a faultily designed hose connector and the hose. The problem with this unit as Oneida insists it must be used, is that the supplied hose is shown in the instructions connected in a way that will not only stress the hose connector and make the collection bucket top-heavy if not attached to a shop vacuum, it makes presumptively poor use of the supplied hose, thus relegating the hose of the shop vacuum to NO use with this collection system. Assembled and installed as shown in Oneida's directions, requires you to buy a SECOND hose to complete the connection to your dust-generating tool. If you can, and most times you WILL be able to make use of your shop vacuum hose, you should use its hose to connect to the TOP of the cyclone using a supplied right-angle connector, and use Oneida's supplied hose to go from the side inlet port of the cyclone to the dust-generating tool. I have included a photo of the Oneida setup as intended by them, and a photo of my modified setup that makes efficient use of supplied components and works excellently, as intended, without putting stress on any component. Note the use of a supplied commercial elbow, able to take the stress of a slip-fit connection without splitting as the Oneida-supplied hose adapter did. It was fixed with a personally-supplied hose clamp. Note, too, that the right-angle connector used as I have, eliminates the awkward connection at the top of the cyclone that will stress ANY hose unnecessarily.

    Comments about Oneida Molded Dust Deputy Kit With Two 5-Gallon Plastic Buckets :

    Had everything assembled and functional in about ten minutes, and since then can't imagine life without it (until I upgrade to a proper dust collector). It's rare to find a product that performs so well. Suction has remained good after filling several buckets, and the new shop-vac filter that I bought concurrently remains fairly clean. As an added bonus, you might find that you are able to install a higher quality filter, as clogging will be much less of an issue going forward. Performance is compelling enough that I've even hooked it up to my power planer (portable 13"). While this is clearly beyond the intended capabilities of the Oneida and my vacuum, the combo appears to have no trouble clearing chips from boards up to 6" wide. That's as far as I've gotten with that test. Like some Swedish furniture, the Oneida should last a long time if you're not too rough with it. It's all plastic, so be careful. The only con that comes to mind is the price. I'd imagine that this is a pretty high-margin product, given that there's really only a single custom part, plus a couple of buckets, a hose, and some cheap wheels. That said, I've seen it on sale, and it has made my 12 gallon shop-vac feel adequate again. For that, I am eternally thankful.

    Good Dust Collector for a Shop Vac

    Comments about Oneida Molded Dust Deputy Kit With Two 5-Gallon Plastic Buckets :

    I have waited to do a review until I had used the dust collector for a few months. I have been very impressed with the cyclone. I use it on my miter saw, bandsaw, and orbital sander. It have noticed a drastic reduction in fine sawdust. I did not attach the bucket to my shop vacuum, but will either connect it to my vacuum or build a cart that will hold both and make it easier to empty the bucket.

    I have seen video's on You Tube that were a prank but this is not one of then. I purchased my Dust Deputy from Woodcraft for easy return if it did not work. I still have it and won't give it up. I create a lot of saw dust, wood shavings and sanding dust. You still need to clean the filter ocasionally from the fine dust. I still can't believe it.

    The Combination of the Oneida Dust Deputy with the Rikon Dust Extractor Is like Batman and Robin Efficient, Great Power, Low Maintenance and better yet high performance With Woodworking tool including the Shopsmith Mark V Your first project will be the mounting of the Oneida Dust Deputy to your shopvac And you need to add a support for the plastic lid because the pressure and weight of the system Will dame it very quickly The $100 price tag might look high but at the long run is cheaper you will spend this money on replacement the filter Of your Rikon or any other shop vac In my setup I can see that 99% of all heavy particles are sent to the secondary container and only the Very fine dust is trapped on the filter of the Vacuum. Incredible to see the a clean Vacuum and all the derbies properly directed to the secondary container By the action of a vortex of the Dust Deputy Your Shopsmith or any other Vacuum will never loose suction power…because it will never get any Shavings, dirt and other materials used in your shop If you are looking for a complete setup for our shop the Oneida Dust Deputy in combination Rikon Dust Extractor And the Woodriver remote control will turn your shop into a clean room dust free working environment

    Comments about Oneida Molded Dust Deputy Kit With Two 5-Gallon Plastic Buckets :

    This thing is awesome. period. It separates out almost everything dust-wise that I can suck up with my shop-vac. Almost NOTHING gets past it into the body of the vacuum. I've used it daily for the past month, and only had to clean my filter one time, just for good measure. It wasn't even that dirty, just felt like I needed to do it. It can really hog up the dust too, My band-saw doesn't have a proper dust collection attachment, but only has a large box (shoe box size) at the bottom for the dust to pool, so there's a large quantity of dust in there most of the time, all it takes is a few seconds with the shop vac to have it spotless. The only thing that can make it into the vacuum is the occasional long strip from a hand plane or piece of paper towel. Sure, you can buy the cyclone by itself, but then you gotta do the run-around to find a sealing material, hardware to attach it to your vac, casters, buckets, OR, you buy the kit and be done with it, using it in about 20 minutes. In the same vein, you could build one, BUT, again, this thing is a performer, and unless you're just into aerodynamics and tuning of cyclones, you'll never match the ability of this thing.

    Comments about Oneida Molded Dust Deputy Kit With Two 5-Gallon Plastic Buckets :

    I use this to vacuum up wood chips and saw dust. It really saves on shop vac filters. I did not attach it to the shop vac because it made the assembly to cumbersome to pull around the shop. So, I keep the units separate. In this mode it tipped over easily. So I mounted the bottom bucket to a 12"x12" piece of plywood and mounted four casters on the plywood. (3 are supplied) That worked fine. Great addition to the shop.
