    Thanks Paul! Nothing like all the cool stuff you added to your shop over the last little while .

    Update!

    Installed the conveyor. It works great! It took about 3 hours of test-running to fine tune some bugs out, but now everything runs smooth. Sorry for the mess in the yard. Once it's all done, I will spend a day and clean it all up .

    It will be really easy to keep the DC clean from now on. Once in a while, all I will need to do is push the mound of shavings/chips sideways to clear room for more. Should be 10x easier than moving the sealed bin all the time.

    Some pics:

    Then, I got my brother to send a large board through the planer, and went outside to take some "action" pics of the results:

    So far, so GREAT! I will update in a week from now to let ya'll know how the system is performing. I have a real "stress test" coming up - 2 hours worth of heavy planing. Should be interesting to see how the DC keeps up.

      you need to find an old covered forage wagon (what we called them)
      pass the conveyor in through the side and let it fill up.

      find a local chicken farmer, or horse barn looking for wood shavings and they can come grab the wagon once a week.
