Downdraft tables are an excellent method of capturing airborne dust created when hand sanding items of furniture. Because the air flow is downwards the dust is naturally drawn towards the table surface which has a series of hollow rubber grommets all over the surface to protect vunerable surfaces. The FT-1000 has a 375W induction motor driving a large diameter impellor creating an air movement of 3,060 m³/hr. This air flow is drawn through the table surface and through a rear upstand inlet along the whole width of the table. The rubber grommets on the surface protect the work as well as providing an air gap under the work. Hinging side upstands can be laid down to allow longer workpieces to be mounted. There are two pleated filters to capture the dust in front of the impellor, ensuring clean air returning into the workshop, whilst a dust tray in the bottom of the cabinet is easily drawn out for emptying. The FT-1600 model is simply a large table, twin motored model, with twin filters as well to allow a much higher airflow over the bigger table. Perfect for hand sanding or power sanding all types of timbers, but you should extract from power sanders at source. Easy to maintain with no tools being required. Solidly built, these machines provides a cleaner working environment and will be a boon in a trade workshop. N.B. for wood dust use only.
