I just built one for a 5 gallon bucket and have noticed that if I try to suck up too much at once, it can get clogged. This happened mostly when sucking up a large pile of plane shavings. If your machine is doing a great job, it may be simply producing more material than the cyclone can handle. What may help is making the cutout in the baffle for the stuff to drop through a little smaller diameter so that more stuff can fall into the can and not clog stuff up.
