Greetings guys and dolls: My new filter came in Wednsday night. So Thrusday morning I got up early to get started emptying and cleaning the d.c. and other things to do. So, after a 1/2 pot of coffee and a few smokes, I headed to the shop. Well I got the aformentioned done, and removed the filter from the box, along with the free bags, turnbuckles, and instructions. When I saw this thing I thought” this sucker’s too small”. My d.c. is a Delta 50-850, and the filter is a smaller diameter than the diameter of the collector…
hhuumm…somethings not right here, I don’t think. But I put it on, and there was about 1 1/2” of space between the filter and the rim of the d.c. all the way around. But then I tried the turnbuckles, and “crap”... they don’t work….too long!! They won’t hook on to the rim of the filter and rim of the d.c. Sooo… I call and talk to Mr. Wynn, and we go through the procedure of solving the problem. After I did what he said, “crap”,
still won’t work. The only solution was to use 4 small clamps to try to fix this to get the rubber gasket to seat down….. well…that’ll work, I think. So I got the bag put on, everything adjusted, turned it on….ooohhh, that sounds good. Checked several blast gates for suction…nice!!!! So I got started milling up some timber for some cabinets I’m building. A couple of hours later it was time for a coffee and smoke break, and rest my ole’ aching back!!! I better check things. I looked and there was dust all around the inside around the bottom of the filter and dust all over the collector…fine dust… what a pi….r. Took the bag off, checked the clamps… nope..still tight. Where is it coming from? Vacumned it good, and quit for the night. Today…. same thing all over again…..So… I’ll call Mr. Wynn in the morning ..again. But now the big question for you guys that have this filter is this: How do I fix this problem just short of returning the thing? Oh..I almost forgot, this is the 35A NANO. If you guys out there that owns this thing could tell me, I’d be indebted to you just short of giving up life and limb…...... I await the results with patience and vigor…....Thanks a bunch…..
