Was worth the morning to make.
I have a cheaper Harbor Freight dust collector. It is pretty new, and works great. I ran a pine table top for a beer sign, and had to pause everything to get bigger chunks out of the inlet screen. Other than that works good, but that was a real nuisance stopping . I was doing a roughing 3D with 1/2 inch end mill , 1/4 deep @ 130 IMP. Today made a separator barrel, for $ 65 . Doesnt look very good but ran the same toolpath on the same wood, not a piece of wood on the inlet screen afterwards. Still pics up 99% of dust .
