I’ve had the compact filter setup for about 2 weeks, and I haven’t ran any MDF through it, just 3 edge light acrylic pieces a few inches diameter, some proof grade maple and cherry (a few keychains) and about 4 or 5 dozen sheets of Baltic birch ply.
It seems that the smoke isn’t coming out of the machine with last night’s jobs. I had the filter on the lowest setting so far. Even cranking it up to max the filter gets louder but air is not significantly moving out the sides of the filter like it used to a couple days ago. Smoke is not vacating the machine well either, at full blast.
I understand Baltic birch ply from local lumberyard isn’t proof grade, but it has to be agreed that it’s pretty much a laser cutting standard material. I would think that the filters would last longer than what anyone could possibly throw at it in 2 weeks worth of jobs.
It seems odd also that turning up the knob did not improve performance as instructed.
How do I resolve?
