The wok/frying pan modification is supposed to help improve the seperation of the fines into the collection bag and keep them from clogging up the filter. I have not done that mod, as I’m currently building a Thein Top Hat pre-seperator. The advantage of the pre-seperator is that large debris (& fines) is seperated out BEFORE entering the blower/impeller, thus preventing potential damage to the impellor. As an added bonus, it is easier to empty the trash can collector bin than changing out the plastic bag! Win-Win!!!
