Hello all! Over the last few years I’ve heard (seen only one) of
jewelers’ installing vacuum systems at their benches. The
positioning is right near the bench peg. I like the idea;and
after watching another jeweler recently, rubber wheeling, right
into his face. I’m ready! What an unhealthy condition to
continue. The system I saw had used a shop vac. in the ceiling.
It sounded like an airplane overhead when in use. I went through
two shop vacs prior to purchasing a torit dust collector. I
could probably tie into it, but don’t for obvious reasons. First
reason being higher grade sweeps than polishing dust. I wouldn’t
be able to turn it in with my filings.
Anybody know of any collector/system made for this purpose. I
suppose $200 to 300 would be a plausible expenditure.
Now if anybody says, “get some sheet metal and a five gallon
bucket, fabricate a cone, fit tightly in bucket, get a strong
vacuum” etc. Spare the details! I’m not a gearhead! I would like
to purchase a system that I can plug in. Yes!
To fresh air and all!
