Does anyone have a recommendation for a dust collector for a sandblaster? I use a HF siphon cabinet. Thanks!

I've been using thee TP Tools HEPA dust collector for years with excellent results.

There's a bucket-sized collector that can go between the cabinet and the vacuum- anyone recommend it?

I use one with my CNC machine, it works very well there, can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work with a sandblasting setup. The brand I have is called a Dust Deputy, around $90

I use a bucket set up between my cabinet and the dust collector. It is amazing how much dust/grit that it recovers and prevents from going into the dust collector. I highly recommend it. Tim

Thanks! I will look into it. I bought the cyclone/bucket that works with the vacuum but it did not work for me.
