Glenn,

I've seen ads for that Oneida thing before, but I've always been skeptical of it. Do you know if it works as well as a bigger one? I guess that's the hangup for me. It's so tiny compared to ALL of the others I've ever seen built or sold.

This is version 3, version one was the smaller hoses, swarfs clogged the hose inlet so went to the 2.5" hoses. Version 2 duh??? didn't fit the hoses, (let my son measure, didn't double check him). Version 3, 6 gallon bucket and a plywood added to the lid. The baffle is my idea to see if I could keep the swarfs in the bucket and out of the filter, YEP! it works better than I thought it would. Since I'm more worried about swarfs from the lathes and mill and not dust I thought I'd try this 1st. and yes I've dumped it over and the swarfs stayed in the separator.
Now why didn't I do this years ago???? Remember to use a bucket that had liquid in it cause a dry goods may not have a gasket in the lid.
