Basic tool kit for home: Workshop vacuum cleaner

Jan 6, 2018 · 1 min read

An indispensable machine in every workshop should always be a workshop vacuum cleaner. Since most of my machines are from a specific brand, I also bought the mobile vacuum cleaner from this brand. Many wood dusts, which are scientifically confirmed, cause an increased risk of cancer (eg lung cancer, nasal cancer). Not only that, it also attacks the skin and mucous membranes in the airways. For me, this usually affects nosebleeds, if I was exposed too much and too often to the wood dust and inhale it constantly. Therefore, the purchase of a workshop vacuum is enormously important and actually the first thing you should buy, as soon as you use machines such as orbital sander, router, portable circular saw. You are doing your health a great favor with it. The danger of wood dust should not be underestimated. There are many reports on the Internet. When choosing the brand, there are no limits, because there are several manufacturers for this. In the private sector you have free choice. Take a little more money in your hand and pay attention to a high extraction performance and compare the different workshop vacuum cleaners.
