Nick, a box like this will remove the largest cuttings but most of the fines will travel through to your vacuum. I think you would be better off spending the money to buy either an Onieda-Air Dust Deputy or Clear Vue Cyclone. The cyclonic action of these units will cause most of the fines to remain in your box as well as the big stuff. I am not sure how much difference using a box as opposed to a drum effects the dispersal of fines but I will check with the companies later today for their recommendations. I do know I would rather empty a 5 gallon bucket than lift a box like the one shown.
