I’m cheap, and my girlfriend beats me if I spend too much money in the garage. This inspires me to come up with a cheaper solution to my lusty Shop-Vac pre-filter needs. My solution was to buy myself a GAMMASEAL!!!! and screw a hole in it, then cut a hole in a bucket and hook it all up. SUCTION FTW!

****** Get a lid on it

*Get a GammaSeal Lid and make this*
You can get a GammaSeal at Lowes. (I’m not sponsored by them, I was just happy to find a cheap solution to make a pre-filter with and wanted to share. Hate going out in public? Get a GammaSeal from Amazon instead.

*Use a Woodstock bucket lid separator. Still very cheap.*

*Use a Cyclone dust collector instead*
Are you not handy? Will you cut your hand off if you use a power tool? Try the Cyclone. I see these all over YouTube woodshops.

*Are you rich?*
Then just buy a full sized shop dust collector and plug it in to your tools Mr Moneybags.
