    That works as long as the area when open is sufficient for the required make-up air!

    Building a work station in the new shop. The station will have a shop vacuum underneath plumbed permanently to a Dust Deputy. I am sure this has been discussed more than once but I wasn't finding much with a search. I am sure there is a trade-off between noise reduction and potentially damaging heat. I am thinking of putting some rigid insulation around the inside of the cabinet and venting the enclosure.

    I am wondering what experience others have had with enclosing a vacuum in a cabinet to reduce noise. Would like to hear from those that have actually done this, if possible.
    Regards,

    Kris, what you need to do is to be sure you use a vacuum that has enough native cooling to remain reliable in an enclosure. You can also consider a baffled air intake and return with small pancake fan to remove warm/hot air from the cabinet. Winston Moy on the 'Tube has put shop vacs in enclosures for use with small CNC machines to reduce noise from a screaming vac.

    Your benefit will be increased if you can also use an extractor that is inherently lower in noise level by design. Of course, that's also a bigger financial investment.

    I should have been more clear in my post. I don't intend to spend a lot of money on this setup. I am using a standard shop vacuum in an enclosure, and if I can get get some noise reduction using a passive solution, without causing overheating issues I would consider it a success.

    I don't know how to go about ensuring the vacuum has adequate cooling to remain reliable in an enclosure other than trial and error or asking input from someone that has done it.

    I will check out the video. Thank you Jim.

    If anyone has experience to share on enclosing a shop vacuum I would appreciate it.

    Cool A little progress and a new addition

    I ended up going with a mini Dust Deputy after trying a plastic tote and watching the sides suck in.

    Haven't had much time to work on the shop but did start installing the DC ducting.

    Didn't want to guess as to where I was going to terminate the drop for my TS so I added this to my collection. Received today.

    Last Machine?

    Received this yesterday. This rounds out my large equipment for the new shop. Now just need to finish the garage drywall so I can hook up the DC, and get some stuff out of the shop part and get things organized.
