Today my dusty died.
I was working on two toy chests for christmas. I was cutting the curve on the base moulding with a jigsaw I heard a clang, followed by a change in pitch of the dust extractor hum. My 3 week old dust extractor.
I cut the power and walked over to explore.
The impellar case was split… a ding in the curve… and some paint missing.
I found this block of wood. A little big for a dust extractor… about 20cm long. (Tells you it’s got some power.) I had the 4” flex hose sitting on my project next the jigsaw. It was doing a good job. Something moved and the hose fell to the ground… I didn’t think much of it and kept cutting. I didn’t think it would find an offcut below me.
I removed the hose mounting to explore inside. A single blade has been bent need flat.
So dusty is out of action for a while. Need a proper repair on this one.
Any tips on fixing it would be more than appreciated.
