Dust extraction system


Awaiting Approval Nic Marshall

The current dust extraction system is shitty. Lets solve it!

  • air filtration system: broken- in parts. bits missing
  • chip extractor: broken- not sure, think its a wiring issue
  • dust extractor: broken- motors are screwed.

Tools that should have extraction:

  • bandsaw
  • drill
  • wood lathe
  • belt sander
  • hand sanders

all these extractors have been either fixed several times before and keep breaking or have been in the process of being fixed for months. I suggest solving this with buying new equipment.

  • Dust extractor suggested is a 2 motor beefy stand alone unit. Great for connecting up several tools: record-power-dx4000



  • General tidy up vacuum cleaner: Charles vacuum (This will replace my broken henry)


  • dust vacuum extractor: record-power-dx4000: £349.99
  • extractor clips etc: £250
  • air filtration system: Jet AFS-1000B Air Filtration System: £386.93
  • vacuum cleaner: Charles vacuum: £129
  • total: £1116
  • hackspace to cover it
