Vacuum, hose, planer, stand and bucket are not included.

    I purchased this to add on to my Sears (old… very old) shop vac. Wow! What a great idea! It grabs up most of the stuff that would ususally clog the filter and drops it in the 5 gallon bucket it sits on. It is then very easy to empty the small bucket without having to take the shop vac apart, very handy! I highly recommend this to anyone using a shop vac for their dust collection system in a wood shop.

    Ok, I haven’t even used this prouduct yet, but I’m already disappointed in it.
    First and foremost, it’s not cut to the right sizes. The fit over the top of four different Home Depot 5 gallon buckets is loose at best. The hose ports are also sized incorrectly, and the standard connectors don’t ‘grab’ at all. In fact, just to see what would happen, I tried a 2 1/2″ extension wand in one of the openings and it sank in almost 3″ before it tightened up in the hole. I’d imagine that any control this thing is supposed to have over the airflow in the bucket would be destroyed by that big a change in the postion of the inlets.
    This lid also isn’t made of the typical shop-vac type high-impact ABS, but rather a very brittle, shiny plastic that probably won’t take any rough knocks in the shop if you should drop something on it.
    I’m going to try to bungie the lid down to a bucket to keep it tight, and cut up a few hoses and see if I can make them snug up in the ports. If it works, I’ll post an addition to this write-up explaining how I did it.
    For now, beware. Even if you get this thing to work, it’ll be with some scratch building and home rigging.
