The Essential Dust Guzzler - Breathe Easy

We would like you to meet the Dust Guzzler - a product designed to help woodturners control fine-particle dust in the shop.  Almost everyone is aware that wood dust generated in our shops, especially when sanding, can create a health hazard.  That is why we set out to develop and offer a product that can help turners solve some of the dust problems that might exist in their shop.  After about 1 1/2 years making prototypes and testing them in our own shop, we arrived at a design configuration that helps you capture the vast majority of fine sanding particles where it counts - right at the project being sanded.  We also included the capability to let you configure Dust Guzzler for the specific project you are sanding.One setting for bowls and platters, and another one for spindle sanding.

In either configuration, the Dust Guzzler's unique design provides superior fine particle capture when sanding on the lathe.  And, Dust Guzzler is also very effective when turning form in seasoned wood, as we all know that fine dust is created there as well.  All of our testing with prototypes lead to the design of the Dust Guzzler Plenum chamber that you see here.  The plenum stabilizes and directs the air flow into a standard 4" dust collector hose connection.  Made of super-tough ABS material, the plenum is formed, welded and glued together for extra strength - resulting in a very light weight form  that is tough, durable, and able to take the abuse and an occasional "hit" as will happen in the turning environment.

Testing also lead to the specific shapes of the ports in the face of the plenum.  These ports, two for bowls and platters and three for spindles direct and focus the flow potential of your dust collector exactly where it will do the most good - as close as possible to the edge of the object being sanded.  The components of Dust Guzzler keep the system very durable and also very light weight and easy to handle and store.  A specially designed all-aluminum mounting system fits on almost any lathe and provides complete adjustability in height and distance from center. Double articulation lets the user tilt, twist, and make fine angle and distance adjustments.  So, whether you prefer to sand in forward or reverse rotation, or switch rotation during the sanding cycle, you can quickly adjust Dust Guzzler as needed.  All Dust Guzzler and mounting components are very light weight to provide ease of use, yet are tough and durable for years of trouble-free service.
