The Complete Online Guide to Knifemaking, Dust/Spark Collection System

We made this prototype dust /spark collection system from a 4inch plastic dust hood, pvc pipe fittings and flexible hose. We designed it to be easily attached to the tooling arm of a 2x72 belt grinder and is powered by a wet dry vac. What makes this design nice is it allows users to insert additional tooling arms into the grinder with out having to remove the dust collection system. 

We have created a short how-to video which details the process (link above).
