Sleeper it happens because of not enough suction to pull all the debris out of the blast gate grove. It builds until they won't close fully. Its worse with the plastic gates and can be fixed somewhat by putting srews and nuts on the plastic gates to tighten them up. Clean the groves with a small screwdriver before adfing the screws. A larger dust collector will reduce the problem but may not eliminate it all together.

Just my opinion on what I have been doing in the same fight. : thumbsup:
