|Axminster NVD750 Numatic dust extractor|
I opted for the Numatic NVD750 with twin motors.
↓The NVD will sit to the left of the lathe.
↓Here is the space to the left of the lathe.
↓The homemade carcass is moved into position.
↓The NVD is lifted inside the carcass.
↓The front piece of the housing is secured with wing nuts.
↓The top back piece is secured with wing nuts.
↓The top front piece is secured by press fitting it onto a couple of 3mm metal studs.
↓The housing is pushed back into position.
↓The 32mm hose tucks away very nicely.
↓After a few hours use I found the Numatic nozzle was getting battered and worn. I made a sacrificial nozzle out of 38mm plastic waste pipe.
I have moved the workshop into a bigger room and plan on moving the NVD to different areas in the shop as needs be.
↓ To move the NVD around easily I made a trolley out of two circular pieces of plywood and 4 Swivelling Castor Wheels.
↓ I permanently attached the trolley to the bottom of the NVD.
The long hose was awkward to tidy up each time, so I made a post to hang it on. I'm well pleased with the post idea.
↓ Here you can see the vacuum hose is well clear of the floor.
↓ Here is a view of the top bracket.
↓ Here is a view of the wooden bottom bracket.
↓ Here is a view of the wire hook at the top of the post.
UPDATE [06-12-15] - I was not happy with the wooden bottom bracket so I spent a bit of time and made a metal one.
↓The filing button was made from a piece of round offcut.
↓Here is the bottom bracket with a rounded end and a 16mm hole for the post.
↓The bottom bracket is attached to the underside of the trolley.
↓The metal bottom bracket is neater than the wooden one.
I have to cut up a lot of wood indoors for the new workshop. The debris from a Mitre Saw flies everywhere, but I have managed to effectively contain the mess using the NVD, the Axminster Jet AF-500 Air Filter unit, and a large cardboard box.
↓ The 40mm waste pipe directs some of the debris to the inside of the box.
↓ The bottom flap of the box helps to contain a lot of the debris.
You can see part of the Jet AF-500 Air Filter unit to the left behind the box. I leave this unit running for a good few hours after using the saw.
