I have built this cart to hold my planer and dust collection all in one. I’m pretty happy with it except the filter I have chosen gets clogged quick and turns the planet into an air compressor. What filter material should I use? Or what can I do to keep the big chips in the bottom?

Does the can fill up fast? I’d think that the stuff would swirl around in there pretty good and plug just about any filter real quickly. It doesn’t look like there is space or time enough for all but the biggest chips to settle out before the air filter blocks up.

On a side note it is interesting that your top piece of plywood is between the two side pieces instead of on top of them. The different orientation would make for a somewhat stronger joint, the weight being in compression on the side walls instead of the top being in a shear stress situation.

It’s not even close to full I ran one board thru foour times before it clogged. The top is plenty strong not worried bout that just trying to get this filter deal worked out.

After a different look you can’t tell that the top is two pieces of 3/4 maple ply with the bottom piece daddies into the sides. So it’s plenty strong

You need some sort of knockout device, like this.

I thought about this but do not have room inbetween the top of the can and the top of the cart
