Dust Collection


This is a question for all of you cabinet shop guru's... I am looking to get some kind of portable dust collection system that would be beneficial for remodeling, especially small bathrooms. The Shop Fox products are too large and of coarse are meant to be mounted... I saw that Grizzly has a small portable unit but it still has a hose port, Would that unit work or can it be customized to accumulate dust particles from a room?
Suggestions, Recomendations?
Yes, Leo... I'm following you again

Re: Dust Collection


I wouldn't use one of those things inside someone's house.

They let too many small particles by.

Re: Dust Collection


My original thinking on this was mainly due to cutting out FiberGlass units... those are a mess. I vacuum a lot and try to keep the area clean throughout the day. If a portable unit would be of any kind of help, I would consider it but it would have to absorb 25% of the dust at a minimum, otherwise it wouldn't be worthwhile...

Re: Dust Collection


Tech....are you referring to dust extraction as in air filtration for demolition? If that is the case, you can get a small negative air machine. its what we use at the hospitals and in sensitive electrical areas.

PM me if you need some contact information. I deal with a company out of PA called NIKOMED USA. I can give you Ben's information. A small machine is around $1,000.00 but is worth every penny.
