that w/ a shop vac before...works well. Filters don't always catch everything...kpc


  • Avoid sooty vac problems

    I was on a job recently where the sheetrock installer was sanding and wanted to show me what he learned on his sheetrock website forum.

    He bought a few extra lengths of hose, hooked them up in series and ran the discharge out of the closest window to make a sealed venting system. It works fantastic. He sanded with no need to dust everything in the building.

    I wanted to share this thought everyone. It is something that many of you may already be doing but its worth sharing.

    I've been on many a furnace cleaning and noted the problems that are bound to happen with a vacuum.

    for the drywall guy but the dewalt vac that can run with cord or cordless never lets any dust out. you can goe from dry to wet without any filter change either. Great if you already have dewalt.

    They sell three types of special filters, dry wall, hepa or regular filters for a shop vac. They all have to be cleaned after a big job. Sometimes you can put a old panty hose over the filter to make it a little easer to clean it.
