Introduction: Secure Suction Chamber for Disc Sander

This new instructable about building a simple yet extremely effective guard House for my disc Sander (although this is a my previous instructable).
All connected to the vacuum cleaner tube that, creating enough depression prevents dust from getting out while it sucks the most.

All very simple: nothing fancy and easy to build, using recycled materials such as:


PVC pipe from 16 mm and 20 mm,

Advanced hose from an old water connection,

transparent PVC and nylon.

Could not miss given the kind of accomplishment "fast" the classic American tape, always critical to have a result effective and fast!

There is no need to dwell to explain the reasons that made me build this "cover": anyone using the Sander needs no further explanation.

I'll say one word:


Step 1: The Material

I wanted to make a accomplishment easiest way and wanted to do soon:
I succeeded: in just over an hour into the game was done ...

As a first step I made four 16 mm holes into wood, passers-by, so as to accommodate 16 mm tubes that will support the cover fixing them each with a wood screw that crossed it into the base.

Step 2: The Structure

To ensure a more stable the structure I entered into the two rear tubes 20 mm pipe, obviously drilled in order to fit the whole,
In the front instead I settled for a simple lath fixed with screws.

For "whim", since the tube I was missing, I entered into the pipe from 16 to 20 getting a greater "cleaning" in the work.

I then entered the two flexible tubes from 10 mm (flexible but stiff enough) in the two previously created structures behind, and directly in support of wood front; that way I got a slight slope shutter of the visor that would improve visibility.

Step 3: The Cover

They are then passed to the cover.
For valve I used a piece of advanced PVC from a previous job that lent itself very well to my realization because flexible enough but solid enough.

I fixed this sheet with three screws for each side to the lower bracket.

I then connected the two sides with the frame tubes as shown in the third figure.

Forgot to mention that I had previously created a hole for the entry of the vacuum cleaner tube, then braided to avoid releases of dust from it.

Next, using the nylon (garbage bags)

always with American tape I connected with the shield tightly, while at the rear and below I have limited myself to roll it up and adhere it below the wood frame.

Step 4: Conclusions

As a last step I created the front cover, always airtight at the top but this time, it releases at the bottom to allow the hands to come in to do the job and so even that there was a certain air exchange.

Since nylon is very light I kinda weighed down with little pieces of PVC that I had advanced (and in line with the whole creation!)

I must say I was amazed by the absolute effectiveness of this project: obviously not all dust is removed from the vacuum cleaner but the little that remains latent comes to rest inside the structure that obviously will need a little maintenance from time to time.

Given the ease of implementation and low cost of this project I thought I would present it to the public by to share it with those who wish to appreciate and possibly realize.

Thank you for your attention and happy new year to all from Torx.
