My Newly Built Tool

I've been polishing today using the new vacuum tool that my friend Dawn Plaskin and I built on Saturday.  This is the first time we've built something together and it turns out that it's serious fun.  We spark "how to make it" ideas off each other, and generally have a good time.  I'd had a proof of principle vacuum tool that was pretty funky.  This one is the proper version.   The purpose is too keep the air clean and suck the polishing materials into the vacuum cleaner. ( It attaches to a vacuum cleaner for suction.)

Here are some photos.   It's  plastic, acrylic, wood, and the right angles are steel.  I think it looks vaguely steam punk and I love the visual.

Ooo! Very nifty!

Do you have a collection thing for precious metal dust besides the vac itself? -just curious. :)

No, probably that's stage 3. I do have it for sawing and I saw very closely before I polish.
