Oneida Dust Deputy Deluxe for Shop Vacs: For Better Sucking

What happens when your shop vac sucks? And not in a good way? The Oneida Dust Deputy Deluxe can improve the performance of your shop vac so that it can live to suck another day.

The biggest issue with once-mighty shop vacs is clogged filters. An enthusiasm for cleaning up after woodworking projects paired with a dislike or procrastination for emptying filters is a prescription for under-performing weakling of a shop vac. And let’s face it, you might have gone for a bargain brand vacuum that didn’t have much oomph to it to begin with.

The Oneida Dust Deputy acts as the middle man between dust and your shop vac. Through its high-efficiency cyclone system, 99% of dust get captured and trapped in a bucket before hitting your vacuum’s filters – improving sucking power and your shop vac’s longevity. This video gives a good idea of how the Dust Deputy works. Try to ignore the fact that it sounds as if the narration was done over the phone. A friendly tip to Oneida, consider hiring a voiceover for professional narration next time!

The Oneida Dust Deputy Deluxe (includes cyclone, 5-gallon bucket and lid, 4′ of 2-1/2” diameter hose, and assembly hardware) is available for $99.99.
