Video: Dust collection systems can be costly and are often times overkill for the requirements of a small workshop. But protecting yourself and sensitive electronic equipment from airborne particles is a concern, no matter what size your workshop is. The DIY dust collection system shown in the video above is powered by a wet/dry shop vac and uses a Dust Deputy Cyclone to collect dust into a standard 18L shop bucket. 63.5mm fittings, clamps, blast gates and flexible tubing connect everything.
This is a great solution for maintaining a cleaner shop and healthier work environment.
