Rainbow vac for dremmeling? Answered

Is this a good idea or no? I'm sure a few people on here know what a rainbow vac is, and it has the suction to work (although I try to use the low-speed mode if I can because it's a loud vacuum). I emptied it today however and there was metallic crap EVERYWHERE on the inside of the bowl. It wasn't that bad actually and washed out with water. But I was wondering, should I maybe use something like some dryer vent and make a plate to fit into my window?

. As long as everything is in the vacuum cleaner bowl, you shouldn't have to vent it outside. . Not sure how a Rainbow works, but you may want to install a pre-filter to keep the metal out of the blower fan.

Hmm I should have taken a picture of the propeller for you, so here it is XD The water isn't that dirty from running it all last night. But perhaps I should have took the hose off.

Actually it's supposed to be HEPA certafied. That still doesn't do much as to pouring it out, which either goes in the toilet or outside. Gar.
