The connection between the bottom end of the cone and the collection barrel has to be absolutely air tight. Any leak there will suck in air and prevent the chips from falling under the force of gravity. I suspect that is where your problem is.

With your setup, you have at least three connections to seal.
1) The rim of the barrel to the lid.
2) Your down hose to the port in the lid of the barrel.
3) The SDD to the down hose.

There has to be no air at all being sucked into the bottom of the cyclone or it won’t work.

For a test, try putting some suds all over those connections and see if it’s getting sucked into the joint.

Disclaimer : I say all that from stuff I read. My SDD is not installed yet.
