Associate a file Oneida mini cyclone with Festool vacuum cleaner and what do you get? A dream machine for portable power tools, protecting your health and keeping your workshop clean.
The Oneida Dust Deputy mini-cyclone can be connected to any vacuum cleaner, but Oneida has specially designed this model to connect to the top of Festool CT vacuums, turning the pair into an integral unit operated by a tool.
The dust from your tools enters the Dust Deputy first, whose cyclone separates all the larger particles and deposits them in an easy-to-empty 9-gallon box. What’s left then goes into the CT, whose HEPA filter captures 99.7% of particles 0.3 microns and larger (according to the manufacturer).
The main practical benefit is that the vacuum cleaner filter will work much more efficiently, because it cannot be clogged with large debris.
