Which HF dust collector do you have? I have the large one (2HP) and the bag is held on with a large clamp. It did have a spot where it leaked at the spring clamp but a piece of tape took care of it.

i have the 2 hp, and it leaks literally all over. I took it apart this morning and was going to re do it and instead put it in storage. I went back to the oneida and a shop vac and guess what no dust. I am disgusted by this thing. If yours can be sealed with a piece of tape more powewr to you mine looked like the mummy and still leaked.

Thinking more about it, putting a strip of the 2” wide 1/8” thick rubber pipe insulation tape around the separator where the plastic collection bag attaches may give enough flex for the clamp to press the bag into the rubber tape to get a good seal.

I had a similar issue. I installed the adhesive back foam window weather stripping on the inside of the large clamp. Solved the problem or at least made it manageable.
