So I am doing some DIY stuff with timber and MDF. I have used a dewalt circular saw, dewalt jig saw, and a japanese style hand saw for cutting the wood. It creates a lot of dust, I mean a LOT of dust. I did not know it would produce so much dust. I am doing all this work in my large garden shed.
Now the internet search shows that there are special devices similar to vacuum cleaners that can be used to handle this problem. They can attach to the dust extraction port of my circular saw and jig saw and in this way extract (most if not all) the dust that is generated as the power tools are used. I don't want to buy a dedicated dust extraction system since this is occasional DIY work and I don't want to buy a piece of equipment that will be seldom used and just occupy space and cost a lot of £.
I posses a Dyson Dyson Ball™ Animal vacuum cleaner. It has a top port that can be removed and extend like a pipe. If you are from the UK, you will already know what I am talking about. Is there a way to use my main powered vacuum cleaner that I already possess, to suck the dust? More specifically connect the vacuum cleaner to the dust extraction ports of the power tools? If this is a bad idea then I will see what dust extractor to buy.
