Questions & Answers

Can this be used with a cup shaped wheel?

Will this shroud accommodate a cup-shaped surface grinding wheel as well as a flat cut-off wheel?
Asked by: JBN
The Dust Buddie is designed to work only with a cup-shaped grinding wheel. The same company makes a Cut Buddie that works only with a flat cutting wheel.

What is the zip tie for?

Asked by: WRM
The instructions say that the zip tie is for holding the vacuum hose next to the power cord, so they don't tangle. A zip tie doesn't work very well, so I used a foam-covered wire twisty that I bought at a hardware store to keep the hose and cord together. The twisty can be used over and over.

5 in. Dust Buddie Dust Shroud for Hand Grinders is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 21.

The mounting to the grinder was not straight forward. It kept angling and tilting and eventually got in contact with the grinding wheel and melted. The mounting was difficult in 2 aspects: 1 ) getting ti sit flat. 2) getting the height adjsuted properly for the hweel to contact the surface and still allow the dust removal to work. For a short while, it did actually capture the vast majority of the dust generated while grinding rust from sheet steel. It would be useful to have the mounting technique improved and to also have videos available for the different grinder manufactureres/types to show explicit mounting details for each..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Dust Buddie did a surprisingly good job of collecting dust from my Makita side wheel grinder ... The Dust Buddie did a surprisingly good job of collecting dust from my Makita side wheel grinder when used as a rotary saw with a 4.25" blade to cut hard sandstone. The installed dust cover did not cause any vibration of the cutting wheel However, I had to change the position of the worm gear adjustment on the hose clamp that came with the Dust Buddie. In the supplied position of the clamp, the dust cover was at an awkward position.to tighten. I had to change the position of the clamp adjustment to match the photo shown on the website. The adjustment spacers were useful for centering the blade between the two sides of the cover. It can be difficult to predict where the saw will cut, because you cannot see the exposed blade; this required a guide bar to keep the blade on the intended path.

My only concern is the long term durability of the shroud. The plastic seems a bit brittle however it held up for my first project which was about 4 hours worth of hand grinding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as advertised. Excellent product. Used with turbo diamond cup wheel on angle grinder to remove black mastic from 300 sq ft of concrete slab floor. Reduced dust at least 95%+. Had tried small area prior to purchase using a respirator but dust cloud so immense after a few minutes that I could not see to continue. With dust shroud in place respirator was not necessary. Dust shroud was easy to attach to grinder and still in great shape for next job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works! I had a concrete bathroom floor to slope for a standard drain and shower drain and was concerned about the amount of dust it would create. Decided to buy this product along with a heavy shop vac and fine particle filter. I still wore a respirator and would recommend anyone grinding concrete do the same. With this unit I was able to catch 98% of the dust that was generated. I would also recommend checking your shop vac and filter often if you are doing a large job.
