I’ve ordered my Wynn filter so at least I’ll be filtering the air for the meantime. I like how the idea basically changes the dust collector into a chip collector as well. What makes me curious is why manufacturers haven’t changed the design to something like this.
On heat loss, I’m using electric for heat, and the building has a very poorly insulated floor, the walls are insulated, but it takes a bit to get the place warm. I run my collector sometimes for hours depending on what’s going on. My last cut down was six sheets of wood so you can imagine how long it was running. Don’t think I could afford to vent outside that long during wintertime.
And mrron, that’s a good point about the gate, saves me from making an extra one…
