A dust separator works by being connected between the machine and extractor. This dust separator has a capacity of 110 litre so is considerably bigger than most small extractors. It can also be used on machines that create fine dusts even when the extractor would not normally be suitable for this type of machine. Made of sheet steel and fitted with castors, this is a sturdy unit. It has 63mm inlet and outlet fixtures, and would best be suited for use with a vacuum extractor, such as the Axminster Trade NV750. Steel clips hold the lid on and a partial vacuum is created between the waste bag and the inside of the drum to ensure complete filling. A handy window shows when it is full. Well made and useful. N.B. Some assembly required.

Good idea, bad build qualityThe upper and lower halves of the drum are so mis-matched and out of true that assembly by one person was impossible. When I finally got the clamping band to hold the two halves together one half was so far from circular that I had to "dress" it from the inside with a mallet to get the full circumference into the bands V section. Good idea, badly made.
