I just put a canister filter on my 2 hp Grizzly dust collector,
Works great, but when running if I touch the filter on the outside wire mesh I get ZAPPED from the static build up.
The canister has a rubber gasket on the bottom so I know it’s not grounding.
Any one ever have to run a ground wire to it before?

Not on a Grizzly per se, but I worked in a millwork shop during college and I got zapped more than once. I undertook the grounding project after we had a small dust explosion. No visible flames, but could have been really bad if the conditions were perfect.

When I hooked up my new Grizzly dust collector, sander and planer, I followed their instructions and ran a ground wire to connect everything. I have not had any issues. I have not grounded the other 2 dust collectors that go to a sanding table and to various small tools. They don’t usually run long enough to get static build-up- I hope.
I think grounding is a good idea.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
