Topic tags/keywords: sawdust

I keep meaning to empty the bag but it was snowy and cold and I am retired and lazy I guess. I forgot this morning and milled a few boards for some pull out draws I was going to start today. Instead I had to spend an hour + cleaning up the sawdust <laugh> Ya think after living 51 years I would have a clue :)

So I donned the dust mask and got to work cleaning up the mess. I may need to add an extra garbage can (pre-filter space allowing :)

I always wondered how much a dust collector would hold ;-)

Snowdog, thanks for the laugh, and you know your not the first. I must say I have never filled mine past the intake into the upper chamber, but I have waited too long myself. Maybe it’s our age?

Mine looked like that….............................once!! – lol

It took over an hour to clean up the mess and I religiously empty the bag when it’s ~3/4 full.

Snowdog, looks like a lot of mulch to me. Start spreading now, spring is just around the corner.
