The hardest part of using a Dust Deputy is remembering to empty it. :)

Anyone use a dust deputy with composites? I swear I read somewhere that composites don't play well with them but can't back it up. My homemade water trap is decent at best, collects about 1/2 to 2/3 of the material

I can't remember who said something but someone here made a note that they were using the dust deputy type system with a homemade water trap (I think it was DD, then water trap..but not 100%) and they were happy with the results. But that is coming second hand...for what it's worth.

i cut some composites, plastic, aluminum, steel, stainless steel, hdpe, polypro, acrylic, and lots and lots of wood. the only problem i can see is that some plastics get static charges and cling to the wall of the plastic DD. but they eventually fall down inside. im not sure if that is what they where worried about but thats the only issue i could see.
