Vacuum Cleaner

There is a new Club Cleaner in the shape of a silver and blue Draper vacuum cleaner in the workshop. 

The intention is that the bulk of the shavings are swept and shovelled up as before, but rather than spend ages with a brush going into the corners and underneath the lathe motors we can use the Draper, which also has a ‘blow’ function to blow shaving from under the drive motors.

The cleaner has a bag which will need emptying when full.

This is not a fine dust filter type cleaner so it will kick up some dust, (especially when ‘blowing’) therefore it would be sensible to have the big Jet overhead dust cleaner running full tilt for the duration of the vacuum cleaning.
