I have a hard time collecting everything my jointer produces as well. It is an 8” with helical head, and I modified the dust port to 6” with a 3HP collector and the airflow doesn’t seem to have much effect on where the chips fly.

The in-feed side of the table still gets sprayed with chips as i finish my cut. I do not know what can be done to improve this. Possibly using a sacrificial piece following the workpiece? May be safety concerns here when you are holding the sacrificial piece and stopping the machine.
