    Dust collection for dedicated bench

    I have a dedicated bench for deburring and polishing. as such, I took some special liberties with it that some shops might not be able to afford the room to do. To minimize dust floating, I drilled holes through the bench and attached a PVC piping system to a shop vac. As you can see, I made troughs under the wheels to catch the throw off. This is immediately sucked down and out. The end of the trunk line under the bench was heated with a hot air gun and formed over the shop vac fitting perfectly. On a side note, I grounded the PVC pipe run to eliminate any static electricity issues. Notice I use a small piece of brass sheet as a removable blast gate in the elbow just past the wheel.
