I fixed my problem today, so check my latest Blog.
I had my shop became a sawdust hazard the other day.
I was doing a lot of sawing, and all of a sudden, it was snowing sawdust in my shop.
I looked up at my dust collector, & the cover of the canister had popped loose,
& that’s what caused the sawdust storm.
The canister has a lever that controls a flapper that shakes the pleats for clearing them.
When I purchased the canister, it didn’t say how often to shake it clean.
I guess I’m going to do it more often from now on.
I glued the cover back on with polyurethane glue.
I’m also trying an experiment, by putting a deflector vane on the bottom of the canister.
Because there were a lot of larger sized chips that that got caught in the pleats.
I’ll let you know how this works after using it for awhile.
After cleaning the filter the DC works much better now.
With a 1 micron filter I think it will also plug up much quicker.
There seems to be more action going on in the collector bag now.
Here’s a picture of what I did.
