While working on the air station, I made quite a lot of wood dust. So I thought I would see how the new setup worked, and was cleaning sawdust like a madman, when all of a sudden I heard a whooooop, followed by clanking. Shut the DC down and looked at the separator and found the culprit. Unbeknownst to me, my son had been the shop and polished off a Monster drink and threw the can in a pile of sawdust I had swept aside.
On the up side, It never got to the impellor. On the downside, I have to figure out how to get the victim out of the separator!
