Default Dust Deputy Question

What's the difference between the white and black dust deputy cyclone sparators? The only difference I can see, besides the color and about $100, is the black one comes with a gasket and some nuts and bolts. What am I missing and is it worth getting one? I have a metal drum that came with my Shopsmith vacuum, which as since died after 30 years, so I have a ready made cannister.

Dust Deputy Cyclone Kits for Wet/Dry Vacuums | Oneida Air Systems, Inc.

Looks like they are all close in price. The super dust deputy's are a bit more. May have to grab one....

I think,that, the black ones are metal (Super Dust Deputy) vs. the white plastic ones.

They all come with the bolts and the gasket.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

you got that backwards. The 6" black one with the swirl effect on top is resin. The white one is steel. The very small white one is nylon.

i like the look of the contoured black one.

I wasn't totally sure, thanks for the clarification. I have the Dust Deputy (small white one) that I roll around as I need it. Works great!

The difference between the models is the horse power rating of the device . The black one that is $100 more is rated for up to 3 HP dust collector. The smaller and cheaper one is rated for a vacuum such as a Shop Vac. Vacuum ratings can be deceiving you need to be looking at static pressure created by your device. Do some research on static pressure if you want to save yourself many hassles with dust collection.

In addition to the difference in size, the inlet of the smaller white unit is flat, i.e., level with the top, whereas the inlet of the black unit is sloped which, it would appear, starts the cyclone more positively on its downward spiral.

If the OP is referring to the Dust Deputy (not the Super Dust Deputy, which is the larger and resin or steel version other posters were discussing), Oneida now seems to sell a black one the size of the original Dust Deputy (2" ports), meant for shop vac use. They call it the Dust Deputy SD, and is made from static conducting resin "for electronically sensitive applications". $20 more than the Dust Deputy; I've never noticed any static problems with my DD.

I suggest you read Bill Pentz article on dust collection:

Dust Collection Research - Dust Collection Basics

There is a whole lot more to the ability of a cyclone (Dust Deputy) to move dust through a collection system. The size of the cyclone is a small part of the pressure created to move dust and air flow. These are the key elements to have a functioning dust collector and static pressure, CFM, and the size of the collection pipe are all parts of the puzzle

Menards had a sale plus their 11% rebate going on so I got a Dust Deputy Deluxe (the white one with 5 gal buckets) for $79. Just wanted to see how it all worked. It came with all the fixings I needed to connect to my dedicated Ridgid vacuum I have for the CNC table. THIS THING IS COOL! I sucked up around the machine and the floor around it. All the dust went in the bucket - nothing in the vacuum. Think I'll look at geting another one for the other vacuum, build a cart with casters, and be able to move it all around.

I know I could have built one a lot cheaper, but I wanted to see how all the parts functioned. But getting all the parts I would need and the time required - buying it wasn't all bad.
