Fred, you use ATF for your chainsaw? Never heard of that but maybe I'll try it. For the mix too?

Fred, Im assuming you use a shop-vac to yank out all the fine ash. What type of filter/bag you use? Ive heard about a drywall filter but im half tempted to hook up some tubing to the exhaust of the vac and run it out the house. Any thoughts?

Just a 15 yr old RIGID 10 gall. with the original paper finned filter Anthony---I just blow out the filter when I finish whatever I'm doing---stove, sheet rock dust, whatever--nothing to complicated around here, I'm not smart enough to get things to complicated ;)
