Dust Deputy For Festool Redux

dustdeputy_sys2 I talked about the new Dust Deputy Festool Kit back in February. If you remember, I questioned whether it was really worth it to buy the kit, or to save a bit of money and make your own using a Systainer.

The other day someone from Oneida Air Systems contacted me and assured me that if I was to use the product in person, I would see how great it truly is and be able to justify the price. They also sent an updated photo. Normally I would jump at the chance to review something like this, but unfortunately for me I do not own or have access to a Festool Dust Extractor. :( Sure I could test it out with a normal vac, but I like to do reviews the right way.

Back when I first wrote about the Dust Deputy Festool Kit the details were pretty limited, but now that I have talked with Oneida, I have a better understanding of the kit and what is included. What I thought was just a simple plastic dust box, is actually made out of 5/16” thick static dissipative material. The walls need to be pretty thick and the construction strong or else the entire thing could implode. Also included is 6 feet of static dissipating hose with static dissipating cuffs, two 90 degree elbows, and all the necessary hardware.

I have always been one to say that time is money, and if it takes more then a couple of hours to take a Systainer, reinforce it, make it air tight, and make it easily accessible, then it is probably best to just buy the kit. Maybe I was a bit too hard on the price the first time around, but in the end the choice is yours. Did I mention it is made in the U.S.A.
