    Default High Speed....Chip shovelin'?

    So I finally get my machines looking just like all the you tube videos but now what to do with the bales of 2" long 17-4 needles? anyone have any clever ways of moving the light, dry chips out of a vmc (auger not conveyor)? Other than the guy with the long arms and a pitch fork...

    Shop Vacs work wonders as said above.

    Sell the chips to the scrapyard and put that money toward a conveyor
