Glad it helped. Part of the problem with the type of separator you have is as the 5 gallon bucket fills past half way the new debris starts blowing around the old debris already in the bucket and up the vac chute it goes. That is because the separation and the debris are in the same bucket. The DD does the separating above the bucket so you can fill it higher. With a planer your bucket will fill pretty fast. A larger bucket would help that situation.

Check out the Thien separator (A diy approach to your separator).
