90% of dust is collected in shop vac. Making hole in bottom of drum to about 2 1/2 inch will help slow coal speed which it turn keeps rest of the dust down.Very cool! Lots cheaper and fewer moving parts than my auger system. I'd like to see more detailed pics too when you get a chance. So all the dust is going into the shop vac?
I'm using 1 micro filter bag in shop vac.. Don't use fiber dust filter. Using bag will contain dust in shop vacI like this idea.Interested in how many filters it uses.
.from your experience, do you think it would work with buck sized coal? neat idea and well planned out

Did you use the commercially available lid or did you create your own. I'm beginning my search for a 15 gallon metal drum. 30 gallon trash can would be too big for me.
This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.
This place did not mention a lid for other than a 30 gallon or 5 gallon size. Any additional thoughts and photos would be helpful.
Oh, what is the flapper device on the bottom also? Is this a "gerry rigged" item or available on box stor shelves? If your creation- is it spring loaded?
