I’ve been quite busy with the wearable wooden rings lately. Most of the time I work on them in my house – in a spare upstairs room (no workshop yet).
The issue is… I do a lot of hand-sanding on these guys. Granted, these are small items so we’re not talking about a pile of dust, but it’s enough that I go over the work area with a shop vac each night after working on a few rings. ...and then I’m sure there are tiny particles floating around, settling here and there.
SO… I’m in the market for a small dust collection system. I envision something with a hose that I can mount near my carving/sanding area that would take in the dust particles. I’d likely put a mesh/grill over the end to keep from having to retreive rings that get sucked up.
I suppose I could just use the shop vac this way, but I would like something quiet. Since we’re not talking about a lot of heavy sawdust, I was hoping I could get something small/compact.
Any recommendations, guys?
