Topic tags/keywords: router static charge shavings dust milling question

Okay, I have made several passes now with my hand held router and the shavings and dust are sticking to everything. About 1% is making it’s way through it’s dust collection from what I see around me.

What causes that and is there anything I can do you release the static charge if that is what causes it?

If I had the Festool router I am sure this would be minimal but for now, I have a Craftsman.

Thanks,

Is your system grounded? Not sure if it will help, except I can’t think of anything else. Others will know.

I use the Dust Deputy but it is not grounded. Where is the wire attached on the Dust Deputy in the pic? I can’t really see it.

Thanks,

It’s attached to one of the bolts on the lid.

Cool dry air will make this more common. I have used some clothes dryer sheets to minimize the prob. Put a couple in the DD bucket to try after you’ve grounded it.
