At least I have a filter on it this time. I found out the hard way that the dust separator won’t separate backup tape pieces after a destructive tape wipe with a sword… Noticed streamers coming out of the exhaust, and had to completely take the vac apart to pull mangled tape out of the impeller.
Oh well, the lid lasted 4 years. Time to design a replacement and cut it out of some plywood. Should last longer that way.
