Dumb (But Effective) Dust Collector Trick


You don’t see plenty of mud collector tips within the
woodworking magazines, however right here’s my contribution. When your
two-bag mud collector is simply too full, the same old answer is to
take away the decrease bag, let the chips dump everywhere in the store
after which clear up the mess.

After I foolishly let my mud collector to get too full, I do
one thing completely different. With the mud collector off, I punch
down the highest bag after which use my palm to compress the chips
within the decrease bag. This normally makes room for the chips that
have piled up into the highest bag.

And even when I don’t get each final chip into the decrease bag,
it significantly reduces the mess I’ve to wash up once I take away
the decrease bag.
