Great job Tom. We can all breath a little easier now. That barrel will hold a lot of chips.

Hey Dave,

Don’t know how efficient it will be with my new 3 hp surface planer.

Thanks for checking it out. Did you like me on YouTube?

Tony ,

The old one with 4 inch ports worked well. Bought a kit from Rockler, and used the same method but smaller carriage bolts. The size of the separator reduces the available space in the drum. I saw that after I built it and attatched the pipes.

Thanks for the comment on YouTube.

I went back and put a “like” on your video Tom! Thanks for reminding me!

I know the chips can add up fast and you do need something huge to collect them. If your blades are sharp your chips will be fluffy and fill that drum up really quick.

I built a shop at a property we owned a long time ago in MA. Later I bought a 3 hp planer from Grizzly but I couldn’t afford a vacuum or bagging system; that came later. So I just let the chips hit the floor. Don’t do this on a windy day! LOL!! This is what it looks like when I was planing rough pine board for a gazebo I was building for two good friends. I bagged the shavings and put them out on the curb for a lady to pic up. She used them for her horses bedding.
