  • Shop vac muffler

    Has anyone used the shop vac muffler for Ridgid shop vacs? Does it work or not?

    I have one...the difference is minimal, but it does diffuse it some.

      The muffler doesn't difuse much on it's own, but my WD1650 came with a difuser attachment. I trimmed down the tops of the fins on the muffler and then attached the difuser to the muffler with 2 layers of double sided tape. Fits nice and snug and the difuser rests on the little "shelves" created by trimming the fins.
      Works much better with the two pieces combined.

        Here's a link to a home made one:

        Wouldn't want to lug it from job to job, but for the home shop it would be OK. We have the Rigid muffler. I still use my ear plugs.

          With the bad rap Ridgid shop vacs already have when it comes to noise levels, don't you think they would be standard equipment if they really worked?
          I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
