I have the same one Vaughn has from Harbour Freight. I put the same filter on from Wynn. They don't do really well picking up curlies as it will plug the input. I shovel most of the chips out and then use it to pick up the small stuff. I have a Y connection at the lathe with a hose coming up each side for sanding. Also have it hooked up to both bandsaws with blast gates. I give a lot of my chips away for bedding or mulch but don't give away the walnut chips especially for horses as it shouldn't be used for them. I don't use them around the garden either as the walnut chips can kill or retard plants.

and say, “Hi, Honey, I’m home – forever.”
To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
