Discuss Hand held floor grinding set up in the Tiling Tools Forum area at TilersForums.co.uk.
does anybody own or use a hand held floor grinding set up with dust extraction?
Only a couple of ATS grinding cups, variable speed makita grinder, and an aftermarket guard with vacuum attachment. Been ok for me so far
115mm Geoff ?
Me too, For small stuff I use a 115 with cup and a Dewalt shroud + vacuum.
For big stuff I use
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 ?
I never used to use an ash can, but I do now.
A dust can is by far a better setup Andy, it really makes the vacuum more efficient.
Is it something that's simple to make ?
Andy they’re cheap as chips mate.

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 ?
Lee, he's from Yorkshire....
I think this is what I had in mind, I've never looked into buying one so didn't realise the price

There are 2 types, motor assisted & non assisted. I have a simple small 12 litre non assisted can
Ok then here’s how to make your own
For 25 quid, it isn't worth making one. Are the ones with a motor in just to boost the suction then I assume
Blimey, that is alot of work! Trust me, buy one!
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.
I’ll get the machine mart one. Got an anhydrite to sand in January, 30m ish.
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
Anhydrite. Oh you poor sod.
What’s the spec on that Vac Lee please, if you don’t mind me asking?
He can give you one, he has 6 of them!
Lucky sod more like!
Do you run it using a 9 inch cup and cowl? Most are 7 inch from what I’ve seen
I borrow that set up for the odd occasion I need it so I don't actually know Marc, but I can find out.
I’m interested to know Lee, but don’t put yourself out, do you know how many motors it has?
Looks like it might work well.
