    Dust Buggy (changed pipe)

    As most know I picked up a dust deputy while back. I have been wanting to make it, "one with the vac". Couldn't figure out how I wanted to do it, so I searched the forum and found that most stack theirs. I had seen the Shopnotes and they had a nice cart, but it takes up too much floor space. So I used all the ideas and came up with this.





    While it may need some fine tuning here and there, I think it will work. I need to do something with the big ol' hose hanging off the front.

    Looks good to me! Once I get mine back from pellet stove cleaning season, I will have to rework mine. i'll probably steal yours!

    Funny you just posted Brent. I was looking at the picture of yours. What size PVC did you use for your hook ups? 2"?

    1 1/2" white PVC Fittings. a 90degree elbow fits quite nicely on top of the DD.

    Nice idea. I should do that. But, the, I wouldn't be able to stack up wood on top of the vac.

    I like that a lot, Steve. I have mine side-by-side on a cart, but I could sure use the floor space you gain by stacking. I may end up re-doing mine to take advantage of some of your ideas.

    Fixed the Big Ol' Black" pipe issue.



    Thanks Brent, I guessed wrong and used 2". I do have some 1 1/2" mixed in. It worked better at the vac hook up.

    Something else I like about this is that I can see the level in the bucket.

    Great idea. Mine is side by side and it takes up way too much room. I think I'll follow your lead and do the same.
    Won't the PVC make it more difficult to empty the bucket though??
