Dust collection is a big topic in the shop these days, and so it should be. But some tools do not play well with a dust collector, and the lathe is on the top of that list with all those pesky shavings flying this way and that. So I came up with a solution that did not quite live up to my expectations, but even though I stopped using it, I give you – the lathe shroud. Let me know if you find some use for this in your shop! And as always, remember to be Inspired!
The name might be a little awkward, but this is actually a handy item to have when you need to drill holes in drywall and masonry and do not want to leave a mess behind. It attaches to any vacuum cleaner, sticks to the wall where you need it to so you have your hands free for drilling, and sucks up all the dust that you make for you. Enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!
