About Filter Hood for Foredom® Bench Lathe
When polishing, grinding, and sanding. Dust can quickly become a real problem, making a mess all over the work area and becoming a breathing hazard. The Foredom Filter hood addresses this problem by greatly reducing the dust from these operations. A perfect companion to the Foredom Bench lathe, it is suitable for use with a bench polisher, flex shaft, or handheld rotary tool. Even when sanding by hand.
A variable speed heavy duty fan drags the air and pollutants into the unit and the filters scrub out the airborne particles. This greatly reduces dust and fibers, around the work area, creating a cleaner, safer, and more comfortable environment. It includes 2 medium and 1 coarse filter, with spare replacements available.
Pro tip: - if working with precious metals, the filters can be sent to refiners for reclaiming metals caught by the filters.
Built to the usual Foredom quality its constructed of solid, steel with a tough powder-coated finish. For use with 110v and 220V.
