Posted on 16 November 2020 by cradmin

This video from The Fabricator Network shows how much difference using a dust collector can make. Andy Graves demonstrates sanding a deck seam with a 5-in. hand sander/grinder with 40 grit sandpaper. Dust collection cuts down the dust by about 95 percent.

Dust collection is an important aspect of the solid surface fabrication process. It’s even more vital when finishing a seam at a job site. Keeping the dust under control while working in a customer’s kitchen can help keep the space tidy.
