My Penn State dust collector got delivered and I find I'm going to have to visit
the local supply house for various fittings despite ordering an accessories kit.
One of the things that did come was a separator lid for a 30 gallon trash can.
I went to the borg today and bought a 31 gallon can and I found the lid is too
How snug does this thing need to be? Should I take the lid with me to the borg
and try to find a tighter fit? Or do people add foam tape around the trash can
rim to aid in sealing?
I've got a four day period coming up next week when I can attack the problem. I
would like to get my system up and running by then. Ideas?

Mine came with a foam strip around the inside of the lid. Got it at Woodcraft.
Yours didn't? I'd bet that if you stick on some closed cell foam tape, and
apply the vacuum, it'll tighten right up. Tom
Work at your leisure!
Even with a better fit, I still added the foam tape. I'd add enough so that
the pressure against the foam holds the top on. Yes, the suction will hold it
on, but there's no reason to waste some of the available suction.
