A while ago i built a thien separator that fit into a 30 gallon garbage can. This was not the top hat design so it does have a pvc 90 going into the top with the side cut off as were in the plans. This worked great for everything i have done so far…tablesaw work, router table, nothing too serious mostly working on finishing the 2nd story addition i put on my house.
Now i got a hammer a3 jointer/planer and am just about ready to get into some more fine woodworking, among things on the list are kitchen table, dining room table, master bathroom vanity, custom bar for a basement. Today i couldnt resist the urge to mill one of the rough sawn walnut boards just waiting for a project. The hammer jointer/planer couldnt have done a nicer job….the thien separator however became seriously clogged with shavings causing a large amount to be sucked through.
If i go to a tophat design will this completely eliminate this issue since there is no longer those threaded rods and the pvc 90 inside to get in the way? Or do i really need some sort of cyclone either diy…or i was thinking the super dust deputy and hooking that up to my HF collector…
