Infinity Tools has come out with two new cyclonic dust separators.
The first, a DIY-version Quick-Snap Dust separator, features cyclonic-action and connects to standard 5-gallon buckets.
As with other cyclonic dust separators, such as the iconic Oneida Dust Deputy, the Quick-Snap separator removes debris and sawdust from your shop vac or dust collector’s airstream. This helps to extend the life of your filters and collection bags.
Dust separators are usually worth the investment if you can spare the space and deal with an additional hose.
Infinity Tools is also offering a 1/2″ thick x 10-1/2″ diameter lid stiffener, which can be used with standard 5-gallon bucket lids. They say this can help to provide stability. (From what I’ve seen, thinner bucket lids can warp and buckle under vacuum pressure.)
Price: $59.90 for the dust separator, $14.90 for the lid stiffener
Infinity Tools also has a complete Quick-Snap dust separator package, which features a grey cyclone and 9.5 gallon stainless steel collection drum.
It has a commercial-grade rubber mounting gasket, and powerful latches that tightly hold the lid to the drum.
You can buy this version as either a complete setup, with 16′ hose and 4pc adapter kit, or a standalone kit without hoses or adapters.
Price: $269.90, or $299.90 with hose and adaptors
