I'd have just turned the cyclone off, taken the top off the chip barrel, and retrieved the piece I lost.
Better yet, why not make a blast gate, where the gate is sandwiched with the mesh material across a hole, another hole for normal use, and a middle section that is solid to close it off. Nothing to take off and put on? Version 2 maybe? Jim.

At a minimum, I'm Pentatoxic...but most likely, I'm a Pentaholic. There seems to be no known cure. Pentatonix, winners of The Sing Off, season 3
