A few woodworkers, after seeing my Shop Tour Video, asked my about my dust collector modifications, so I made a short follow-up video:

Good info on the DC Brian. I’m sure you heard of the Thien baffle, if you have room, it works great for removing the heavier particles. I’ve emptied my barrel three times and still only have about a cup of dust in the collector bag. there is plenty of info here on LJ’s too.

Works fine for me. If yoiu could get the baffles to make a cyclone action, it should work better to seperate the heavy dust.

Thank you sharing. It looks great and it looks like you could still modify it.
