Hi All,

I own and appreciate my DeWalt DW735 and what it can do. heavy for a portable so I built a rolling base cabinet w/drawers (see my workshop for a photo). The DeWalt DW7353 Chip Collector however….

Anyone else use this. It does the job well BUT:

1. After using it and untying the draw-string holding it to the garbage can (~33 gal) a lot of chips are all around the edge and a LOT falls to the floor. Could be worse I suppose if it was shootin’ out all over the shop.

2. SHOCKS : Woweeee – you might have heard the snap from between my finger and the hose from “your” shops. I didn’t realize just how much static could build up; that hose can sure store a MAJOR static charge! Where should I ground the thing to? The ground screw on an electrical outlet, a pipe?

Do any of you have a different solution. As it stands now, my only dust collection/filtration is a box fan blowing out of a basement window and a ShopVac. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I just plug my shop vac into the port on the back and turn her on, works fine.

Ditto fshrmn43, shop vac with the 2” hose.

Though I know what you mean by static, you can see the chips dancing all over the outside of the hose. Since the shopvac and hose are plastic, plus they are grounded through the plug, I never get shocked.
