I have a woodcraft trash can separator lid. Am thinking of adding a second input port. Has anyone done this? I figure if I have to cut a hole in something, I might as well put the hole in the side of the trash can vs the lid. Thoughts? I have extra gates to close them off when not in use.

I would think putting it in the side might be counter productive to some of the effectiveness.

Why not just put a Y connector before the intake port to hook up your second hose?

I can’t put a Y at the top because it would then be too high and be in the way of several items near it.

What about a T? That shouldn’t be any higher profile than the intake hose coming in from the top…

I’d just be leery of putting a hole in either the can or the lid (but I’d probably out for the lid…)

So i can hook one to my router and one to my TS. I know typically the Y joint before the chip collector would handle this, but that doesn’t work with my setup.

Have your say...
