$55 Makita Dust Cyclone Is Only $12 on eBay (from China)
Tool Blog
Chris   November 28, 2018   0   2  
Stuart over at ToolGuyd posted an article about a new dust cyclone attachment (199553-5) for Makita cordless vacuums that separates the dust before it has a chance to clog the dust filter. The nifty little accessory attaches inline between the extension "wand" and the handheld vacuum unit to act as the first stage of fine dust collection before the main bag. There is one problem though; the Makita Dust Cyclone is currently priced at $55 on Amazon, yet looks nearly identical to one that can be found on eBay for as little as $12.

A year or two ago I was given a Makita BCL180ZW 18-volt cordless vacuum cleaner, which I normally use around the house for small clean-ups. The other day I glanced over at it and a thought popped into my head—"I wonder if that will fit onto my circular saw?" Only one way to find out.

Makita has been making a real effort to offer dust collection accessory options for many of their new tools, which is something I really like, but until now they have been without an actual dust extractor of their own. So what does Makita and their new Xtraxt Vac (VC4710) have to offer?

One thing I really hate is jobsite dust, especially concrete dust. It gets all over the finished woodwork and always finds a way into my lungs. So the way to combat dust is to use a vacuum or a dust extractor. But we need one small enough to fit in the truck with the rest of the tools, and Bosch has one in the new 3931B-SPB 6.6-gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum.

Almost exactly 3 years ago Makita announced their first 36-volt cordless tool, and today we got word of a new 36-volt rotary hammer that I assume will take its place. There is also news of a new Makita 18-volt rotary hammer that is brushless and even has an on-board HEPA vac option.

Dust collection systems, attachments and accessories always seem to be popular at the World of Concrete trade show. With concrete being the main ingredient of the show, there is bound to be a fair amount of concrete dust, so it is only obvious to showcase tools that help clean it up. Bosch has come out with a number of new DC products that are sure to be welcomed by the people that would normally have to work in a cloud of dust.
Oneida Now Offering Dust Deputy Triple Cyclone Kit

Back in the late 90's you could not turn on the TV without seeing a commercial for a household vacuum that offered dual-cyclonic action. These commercials taught us that a vacuum with one cyclone was great, but one with dual cyclones is even better. The Dust Deputy videos have shown us how well their cyclone kits work on shop dust, so imagine what two more cyclones could do.

Makita has announced some new 12-volt max tools, and pretty much completes an upgrade to their entire 12V line. Of course they could still always expand on their line, and that would be just fine with us. Some of the new tools we have seen already, such as the FD02W Drill/Driver and the SH01W Circular Saw that make up the LCT307 kit. The other new tools in the line seem to only have minor updates over the previous models. Power wise the specs appear to be the same as previous models, so it probably doesn't make...
