    Here are two pictures of my pellet vacuum. Design found in the pellet mill and I adjusted it to fit my needs.
    I will try to post another picture of it mounted. It is worth it to build this design as it is fast and simple.

    PS. I want to add a dedicated vacuum to the system, mounted above and wired to flip a switch next to the pellet vac.

    I think the missus would like me to build one to help with dust when I fill the stove, but, I've never had more than a teaspoon of fines in the fines box. Pretty sure with my bottom feeder fines = BTU's.;)

    Yes, the wife is quite happy that the dust has been reduced drastically.
