Great idea Wiz, thanks for posting. A few questions.
1.) I didn't even see where you had the Shop Vac. Can it be placed anywhere?
I added system after you stopped in.
2.) What did you clean the last bit of the grease out of the barrel with or did the garage already have it cleaned out for you?
Barrel had 90 lube oil in it, didn't bother to clean it. I'm setting up system for friend today using grease drum, I just wipe it down with rags.
3.) 15 gallons of coal is about 150 pounds? So once a day you can feed your hopper slowly but surely all the coal it would need, maybe even 2 days. That is really a great idea
I'm keeping hopper filled and barrel daily, this allowing me to have no dust at all. Now I'm keeping shop clean
