This is more of a shop project “project” but I thought a few others might be interested. It was a done in a weekend project and it works very well!
I got tired of emptying the plastic bag and now I do that maybe once every 200 or 300 hours of shop time, but I made one big mistake, I used a 20 gallon trash can instead of a larger one. One night with my Planer or with my Jointer and I am emptying the can (ok, two nights with the bag but the can is way easier!)
You can tell when the can is full as you hear the chips circling around the upper chamber in the baffle.
I will be replacing this with a 55 gallon can in the future.
If anyone wants help with one of these I will do what I can to steer you right.
