In our woodshop we go thru vacuum filters like water over a dam. We have 7 shop vac all which use the VF4200 filter.
With 55 members it does not take long to fill the vacuums and clog the filter. I can tell you none of us enjoy cleaning the wood chips out of the filters. We need a means to let the saw dust goes thru a filter cover but not the wood chips.
So any advice you can give would be very welcomed. The filter work great but the clogging does not. We have individual vacuums on the smaller power tools and 2 outside vacuum systems that handle the bigger power tools, such our 20 inch planner and router stations
