ZAPPED!!! - 2 replies

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?Thanks,Rick
