Question about Shop Vac Vacuums
I purchased a second hand Craftsman 60 liter (16 gallon) shop vac. It came with no bag, so I purchased a couple of 16 gallon bags at my local hardware store. The problem is, I can't attach the bags to where the intake hose comes in, because there isn't a way to attach the bag to the intake port. Am I missing something ??
My smaller shop vac, has a piece of pipe, with a sheath on one side, which is permanently installed, but the Craftsman doesn't have that sheath or any kind of connection to attach a clean bag.
The Craftsman is extremely powerful, and I'd like to connect it to my table saw to collect most of the saw-dust that comes from cutting wood. However, I don't want the saw-dust to go directly into the container of the shop-vac, but rather into a clean bag.
Any help would on this matter would be much appreciated.
Well, good news, you don't need a bag! The trash just settles to the bottom of the bucket and you just dump it out.
I own one of these -- it has many little operational anoyances -- like wheels falling off, lid popping off, etc. If you run into these scenarios and want help on fixes, drop me a line.
Would you please rate my response. I think you'll see some icons at the bottom of the post to enter a rating.

Four (4) casters. Set of 4 Replacement Caster Wheels with retainers. This item is the replacement for the plastic, non-hooded casters shown. These casters you will receive are an upgraded dual hooded caster that are a perfect replacement but offer superior performance.

You can also look at your local Lowe's who sometimes carry a generic wheel.
