Topic tags/keywords: question

I am looking at dust bin level sensor for my dust collector.
I looked the the Penn State Industries one as it is the least expensive and I like the idea.
But I just read on another forum that it does not work with spiral head jointer chips, as the chips are to fluffy, it just keep spinning in the chips, defeating its purpose.
Do you have any experience with this sensor?
Thank you.
Bertrand

Don’t have one, Bert, so you may want to skip this reply. But it’s easy to see that happening. The chips from those heads are different, and they may well be too fluffy to jam the paddle. You could call PSI and ask, they have a guy named Bill that usually takes such calls…he’s not only knowledgeable, but a real nice guy. I would think you could add a small extension to the paddle and get it to jam in the fluffy stuff. That might also make it jam earlier in the regular chips/dust, though. Good luck with your search.
