Awaiting Approval

Matt G

This microproposal is a sort-of “add-on” to my Woodshop Extraction Proposal.

This proposal is to try out inserting a dust separator just upwind of the extractor. These things theoretically drop 95% of the dust drawn through them into a bucket, so that it never reaches the extractor itself.

Hopefully this means easier emptying, no clogged filters, and no gradual reduction in suction power.

The proposal consists two things: - A dust separator "kit" - basically a pair of flanges that you attach to the lid of a sealed bucket. - A cheap bucket with a well-fitting lid from wilkos.
