I run a 48x120" table. the suction is caused by the vacuum and then sucks through low density particle board which I put my material on top to cut. I have been looking for ways to increase my suction as some of my smaller parts tend to move during cutting.
One thing I found was if I cut off my air inlet completely my suction increases by about 10lbs and makes a wonderful difference. Problem being I know this will cause damage to my vac motor. Are there any regulations or standard guidelines to follow as far as air inlet to vac suction so I can max it out without damaging the vac?
It has an air inlet with a valve that is adjustable and I'm pretty sure there where I can adjust it, but every time I have tried to do so the vac will blow the fuse before start up. I think this is caused by it not being able to create enough suction to pull that valve down and let air in.
Any tips or tricks?
Thanks for your time!
