I've been using my homemade chip bucket (standard Rubbermaid plastic garbage
can) for about a year without problems. Well the output hose to the dust bag
fell off and it sucked the garbage can flat. There must have been some
blockage input side, as I havn't seen this before. Of course now that it's
been flattened once it does not want to stay upright.
I'd like to avoid the hassle of building another can (fittings etc), so does
anyone have any brilliant and simple ideas for reinforcing it? I was
considering some MDF rings, bur I was concerned that they would decrease the
dropout of the smaller particles.
