I’ve wanted to build the Thien separator that Tim did www.lumberjocks.com/projects/25589. A friend of mine came across one of the cans (if you can find them they’re great).
After many hours of contemplating the build I decided to shelf it for a while and now another project has overshadowed the seperator. As I was jointing several pieces of European pine (that’s a whole different story) and all of the chips were flying around in my outdoor workshop. At first I was thinking about rigging up a trashbag but as I ran into my container and a few bungee cords…presto!!!
It’s quiet, collects about 82.7% of the shavings and the contents are easy to dispose of.
Eventually I will modify this but as of today I am pleased.
