Dust Collector Seal

Dust Collector Seal

I use a 35 gal galvanized garbage can on my dust collector along with a commercial plastic collector top. For a quick and easy seal between the can and the top, get a length of 5/8″ vinyl tubing the circumference of the can, slit the tubing lengthwise and run it around the top rim of the can.┬áThe vinyl is soft enough to conform to the minor irregularities and just a little sticky with the polyethylene plastic top. Cost: less then $1.50. Time: less than 15 minutes.
