Penn State makes a doodad that allows you to use a trash bag in your DC can:

I've never used it personally so I can't comment on it.

I've looked at these types of units and for the life of me I can't understand why they cost so much! In the Dust Boy's case it's over $500. I believe Delta's and Jet's are in the $400 neighborhood.
I'm considering just making one of my own from a blower and filter parts.

Ditto what Owen said and the only thing I can think of is that in the past the blowers for drum top collectors have always been made from cast aluminum. I know the recent offering have/are been stamped steel and they really should be as cheap as dirt, or dust even.

As am I. I was lucky enough to find a 1 horse Cincinnati Blower that looks like it's destined to be a dedicated sander collector (sitting right next to the machine/short pipe run.
