Bead Blaster Extractor

#1 PostAuthor: MikeP » Wed Sep 19, 2018 7:41 pm

Sorry if this isn't in the correct forum, hope the Admin will correct me if so.

I've had a bead blaster for a number of years and have got use to keeping the bikes under covers due to the dust. But now the dust piles are beginning to get a little hilly, and I'm getting a little worried about the finer particles :eek .

Anyone got suggestions for a good extractor?

Might have to have a rethink as I dismissed the wet and dry vacs as the dust is still abrasive, hence my reason for getting that stuff away from the engines and the paintwork. At £35 It's worth a punt.
Thanks z1bman

my sons blaster was used every day & he used the finest grit which i thought would ruin the motor but was still going when he sold the blaster with the vacuum to a friend of mine & he still uses it & the filter in them is very good quality

Thanks everyone. I've invested in a Wickes wet and dry vac and preparing for a weekend blast session on yet another Kwaki 500 triple . . . . definitely addicted.
