This is a rather neat concept, a wall mounted extractor perfectly suited to small workshops, woodturners or for connecting to a stand-alone machine. Well made and efficient, its 1hp motor generates 1,000m³/hr of airflow and is fitted with a 1 micron rated cartridge filter. This is able to handle chippings, course and medium fine dusts. Maybe not the right machine for a drum sander, but perfectly suitable for woodturning, especially where floor space is at a premium. The collection bag is clipped to the bottom of the filter; if you wish to fit a larger bag, please support it underneath on the floor or the weight of a full bag of waste may be enough to pull it off the filter. The filter has a crank handle operating a paddle to keep the interior clean, just use this periodically to maintain filter efficiency. This extractor could well be a handy solution for small workshops. Please make sure your wall is capable of supporting the extractor's weight.

Compact and cheap but needs cleaningLets start with the good bits - this is a powerful, effective extractor which has a very small footprint. It is wall mounted which means you can mount it above other items - ideal for a small workshop. I find it powerful enough for my P/T and bandsaw - I intend to run it through a simple ducted system using soil pipe but just use it with a length of flexi pipe at the moment.

Perfect for a small workshopMy workshop isn't that small but having seen the size of the mobile chip extractors I didn't want this purchase taking up room that I need for a more valuable machine. I was impressed by the quality of this extractor, it's really compact and the volume of extraction is more than enough when working directly connected to one machine at a time. It fits neatly on the wall of my workshop, I may make up an additional bracket so I can move it to the opposite wall where I have my wood lathe, but its main use is with my planer thicknesser. All in all trade quality system so I can use it for more than 2 hours per week without voiding the warranty, compact size, 1 micron dust filter and cost swung the deal. Downside i that I need to build a support for the bottom of the bag because the height that the instructions say to place on the wall mean that this bag is suspended off the floor
