7" Angle Grinder Dust Control


I don't do a ton of floor work so can't justify the big boy toys. But I have run into a few situations where I needed to use my 7" grinder with a turbo wheel to take some concrete or old thin set down. I'm sure we all know how dusty it can get real quick. Looking to get a dust shroud to hook up to my shop vac to try and get some of the dust under control.

Will any brand dust shroud fit my milwaukee grinder? Milwaukee makes one but it really didn't look as nice as dewalts or makitas. The milwaukee uses a hose clamp to attach to the grinder. So would like to get a nicer one if it will fit my grinder? If any of them will fit what is the best one to get?

Also any special filter I should use on my shop vac with concrete dust?

While we are talking about it does anyone use a dust collector on your SDS when ripping up tile or chipping concrete? I just picked up a new sds max so was looking at bits and accessories for it and came across one like this, http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-HDC300-S...osch+sds+dust? Chipping out tile or concrete doesn't create a ton of dust like grinding but wondering how these dust collectors work and if it would be worth it to pick one of these up also?

They also make a dust collector for drilling holes that looks pretty neat, http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-HDC200-S...bosch+sds+dust. Not really a flooring tool but just came across it while searching for the others and thought it was neat. Anyone use one of these before?

I use a Dust Buddie which works real well, I try to set the vac outside anyway just in case the filter lets some dust come through. The hose clamps works very well and the shroud can follow the contour of the floor if I happen to tip the grinder.

We have an MK dust shroud. Works great. It was amazing for me to actually see the area I was grinding. Worth every penny.

Re: 7" Angle Grinder Dust Control


A CDC Larue dustgrabber is ok, not sure about fitting Milwaukee, usually it's a collar design that they changeout, they would send you the basic shroud and the collar to fit your particular grinder. They make them for some model numbers but not all.
You'll need to use fine filtration bags for any ship vac to prevent filter clogs, you will have issues and maybe one day you'll get fed up with the bs and buy some professional equipment, be happy for awhile then get fed up again, and buy more equipment.

Re: 7" Angle Grinder Dust Control


and then the grinder is too big to get easily down the stairs. so you get fed up still again and go looking for something else

Craig, you know I haven't gotten my planetary grinder yet, so I don't have that problem. Wish I did.
The hand grinders are super portable, I often say to myself I should of brought my 10" grinder, loading it, power(220) vacuums(2) is a hassle.

A dust deputy is an inexpensive little pre separator that will help you manage dust while using a shop vac.
