many years ago i solved the problem this way: removed the upper bag, made an MDF cover to replace the bag. ran 2 pieces of PVC through the MDF cover. one PVC is intake the other is vented out the basement window. end of top bag dust

i was told i needed some source of replacement air. I have found this not to be true with the following understandings: I have an older house that probably is not “tight” by todays standards so it probably replenishes the air itself through natural air leaks. To me an untight house is not a bad thing. Second, I usually don’t run it for protracted lengths of time so there isn’t much air to make up The system works great, large chips and dust in lower bag, fine dangerous dust outside. I think replacing the lower bag with a barrell of some type is my next step.
