Dust. DIY boat owners forever battle dust. Dust is not our friend, in its most benign presence it can ruin an otherwise perfect gloss in our varnish or paint jobs, at its worst it poisons the environment and us.

Elaborate, expensive, and effective dust collection systems are available for home shops, but that doesn’t work for the boat owner. Today we’re sanding bottom paint, tomorrow preparing woodwork for varnish; a permanent system is just not practical. What is needed is an effective economical and portable system.

Enter the Dust Deputy by Oneida Air Systems. A simple portable system that is effective. Coupled with a crush resistant hose, a shop vac with a HEPA filter and dust is trapped. Based on cyclonic collection techniques, the Dust Deputy fits on top of a 5-gallon bucket.
