Jet DC850 1HP dust extractor, good working condition, only light DIY use. Includes original dust bag in good condition, no damage. Perfect for single-machine use, 4 inch port.
Collection from Copthorne RH10 3XF (near Gatwick)
I've always used a vac as normal, and then cleaned the rest up afterwards. You're right though, extraction is pretty poor with the big setup.
The only thing I can think of is to make a shroud / enclosure around the comb that catches the dust / chips and fibrils them down to an extraction port...
Excellent job, must be so satisfying! Great work on the dust extraction, as a thought: why not use a straight pipe instead of ridged flexi hose though? Would improve performance, albeit slightly.
I've got a 3d printer on my list of things to get for just this reason - which one do you have?
Sorry, I missed this question. If it's any help half a year later, I use these : Bolle SILPSI Silium Safety Glasses - Clear https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000VDWMYI/ ... wBb4BB6F44
They're very lightweight, and sit really on the bridge of the mask and my nose.

I use it worth some Bolle glasses that are very lightweight and don't really steam up: Bolle SILPSI Silium Safety Glasses - Clear https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000VDWMYI/ ... wBb4BB6F44
You're going to get grain mismatch that way. The 2x2 blocks will show end grain facing forwards, whereas the rest of the walnut will show edge grain.
You're better off using laminated bendy ply as previously suggested, or just build a more simple box with a heavy roundover on the ends
You're more likely to get a bin collapse from an LVHP system (shop vac) than an HVLP system (chip extractor).
I have a thick walled plastic 30L container under my LVHP cyclone system, and it collapses easily without a pressure relief valve.
