    Nice! I can’t warrant one of those, I don’t sand enough. I have been workout searching out the best cost effective set up this week, for 7 inch, think I’ve got it susseed. Do you have a dust can Before the vac on your grinders or straight into the vac ?

    A dust can is by far a better setup Andy, it really makes the vacuum more efficient.

    That's got a motor in it ? I thought it was a can that was inline that dust fell into on its way to the vac? Am I on another planet ? :D

    For 25 quid, it isn't worth making one. Are the ones with a motor in just to boost the suction then I assume

    TBH I sent the wrong link at first because what you actually need is a simple seperator which you found anyway. I’m not saying you’re a tight arse ;) but I then sent you the diy link. If you watch it to the end it explains very well the benefits of using a seperator.

    Definitely something I need to get. Although being a tight arse with plastic pots always available and pipe fittings in stock I may well lash something together.

    Do you find much difference between the cheap £5 grinding cups and the £40 + ones such as ats sell, £80 even for the 180mm

    Grab a few cheapies. They aren't bad to be fair. I killed my few cheapies on a s&c screed that had a huge belly in it

    Imo you’ll only be able to gauge that if you’re doing a lot of it and spending enough money on it they you’re asking the question.

    I've got a 9 inch grinder with a cowling attached to a single motor industrial dust extractor which I use for pretty much every floor I tile whether it's simply grinding the surface to remove latience , contaminants or taking high spots down.
    Checkout a floor preperation site like pwm or surface preperation

    Do you run it using a 9 inch cup and cowl? Most are 7 inch from what I’ve seen
