The stationary dust extractor is located in the corner of the woodshop nearest to the door and is connected by ducting to many of the dusty machines in the woodshop. It is turned on and off by a green and red switch located just behind the extractor - please turn it on before using any of the connected machines e.g. planer, table saw. Remember to switch off when you are done using the equipment to save power.

For machines not connected to this extractor the Portable extractor can be used.

Collected dust is stored in the blue drum under the unit which must be emptied periodically.

Use the leaver up or down to level up or down the blue container.

Important: when using the dust extractor, please ensure to close or open the little trap to keep the flow optimal to collect the dust.

Note - there are no obvious external markings as to the make/ model of this unit, hopefully that information can be found inside as and when needed
