A lot of people have been asking about the performance of my thein separator. I ran it until the trash can was full and could see a whole load of chips/shavings spinning around inside the housing. Still no chips were sucked up into the dust collector.
I’m glad I used the plexiglass now because I can monitor not only performance but now I can see when the can is full.

Thanks for posting.

My concern with a Thein was not being able to get close to full without loss of suction.

Looks like there is a big difference between one made to fit down in the can, or sit on top like yours.
