Cyclone dust seperation

Any thoughts on this:

vs

The Oneida looks like a more impressive system, I'm just wondering if it's better enough to justify the cost difference?

I've read on a few woodworking forums that the Dust Deputy does a better job on fines like sanding dust.

I certainly want as thorough of a dust control system as I can get. Just the dust created by drilling all of these holes is irratating my throat. Looks like I might have to order the Dust Deputy soon!

Thanks,

This is a total guess, but I would suspect that they both work effectively as they are both considered cyclones. The grizzly product seems to have a smaller cyclone attachment, but I don't know how far it goes into the provided bucket (assuming that the bucket itself does not product the cyclone effect). The dust deputy, on the other hand, is noticeably larger and has that conical shape so evident in all these types of systems. I would say the plus goes to the dust deputy only in that it shows the function in it's shape and you can pick the bucket size (which is a huge plus in my book). I still wonder how well these systems work with the fine particles.

I will be ordering the Dust Deputy soon, I should just order it now. My dust control has to be a shop vac for now so I'll invite anything that can help keep the dust out of my lungs. I hope to be making sawdust by next weekend so I need to get this on it's way.

I have the dust deputy and it works great. I ordered the cyclone only and used a small shop vac from Lowes and a five gallon bucket. Its been 6 months and I still have the original filter on the Shop vac. I wouldnt dream of running a CNC without it. Especially when cutting mdf.

I have a cyclone system in my (HOME)woodworking shop and it works great. There is a large cloth bag that take the small dust out, but most of it will go in the bucket. I haven't tried it around the Blacktoe 4.0 maybe later.......

Awesomeness runs a dust deputy on his table with a 5 gallon bucket. I was amazed
at how clean the vac filter stayed after cutting a full sheet of plywood.
I will have to set up my vacuum system that way when I get to that point.
Right now, I'm just cleaning up with the shop vac by itself and knocking
off the filter every time.

See my impromptu video on my Dust Deputy. It works great and two in tandem work greater. With one, a very, very small amount of fine dust reaches the shop vac filter whether cutting plywood or MDF.
