Warning, this post is mainly just a gripe.

My HF dust collector has been going along great for years now. Today, i look over in the corner and dust and chips are flying everywhere. Don’t know what happened, but it looks like the metal donut between the bag and the filter warped. My Wynn filter won’t seat well against it anymore, and the bag blows off because I can’t seem to get it clamped properly anymore. I’ve got a separator before it, so I cant imagine it got hit by anything serious…who knows.

I need to find some time to look in to it more. Wasn’t hoping to replace this soon. UGH….
