    I still use a filter. But the bags make your filter last a lot longer before clogging. I'd go through a few filters a day, otherwise.

    Also make emptying the vac, a LOT less messy.



    Ian - yes, you need a shopvac. And I'm not saying that only because you're begging for someone to say it...

    You already own a sawzall, am I right? Without a shopvac, your tool collection is out of balance. The mess-making power embodied in a sawzall, require cleanup power to match.

    it smells like......victory......

    do not hit your thumb...

    The sawzall is peanuts compared to the drywall router.

    It's just a dust machine.

    Default dust

    NOTHING makes dust/sawdust like a radial saw.

    Default Why?

    The next question would be WHY would you even want to do it? Unless you are cutting 8 sheets at one time.
