Yeah, I like the 55-gallon steel drum better.
I wonder how close the leaf blower can come to imploding a steel drum, or the plywood box? Our little Kenmore canister vac produces about 5 pounds per square inch suction (estimated by observing that it will just barely pick up a 5 pound box of sugar). That's 5 X 144 = 720 pounds per square foot, or 11,520 pounds on each side of the 48-inch cube. Of course that is mitigated by the opening that lets the ash in.
CoaLen, try blocking off the inlet, and tell us what happens. Not making fun of you, honest. I just want to know....
