I've been accumulating a lot of sawdust lately with several house projects and a few "fun" projects. My poor shop vac has been taking a beating and the filter has definitely seen better days. I decided to scrounge up some materials that I already had and try my hand at making a dust seperator. I shot a video demonstrating how it was put together and how effective it is in keeping the filter from getting clogged. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

<p>I like the connection the side of the bucket w/ 2 screws &amp; caulk. :)</p>
That turned out great! Definitely something to make in the future.
<p>Nice! Thanks for sharing this. I made one of these a while ago, and it's been an excellent addition to my shop. Everybody needs one!</p>
