Hi, a little more. I have seen shop vacs at second hand and thrift stores. But your setup is small and you probably could get by with a 4 gallon unit. With that you could get by just fine with the Home Deput orange top model. You need to be careful to make sure the hose fits the separator lid. You can use some aluminum duct tape to seal any small difference between out vs in hoses and ports. Check the sizes, open the boxes and bring the orange lid to the shop vac section to make sure hoses fit. The Bucket is a standard 5 gallon HD bucket, often on sale.
Really glad you're on here. We could use some young blood around here, and everyone here is very happy to be helpful. At age 15 you are getting an early start in a new technology, one that could easily provide you with a great living over the years.
I've attached a short article on making a living with a CNC. Yours is a little undersized for some things, but you could probably use some of the ideas to fatten up your wallet. it's a pdf so you can save it for later if you want.
