Shapeoko XL, dust boot and kärcher vacuum. Static...

Post by eiriksen » Thu Jun 06, 2019 9:21 am

Hi.

I got a small shop, and use a Kärcher WD6P vacuum for dust with my power tools. I also want to use this with my dust boot on the Shapeoko XL. I have tried it, and it sucks good, but I notice static building up while using. I have read that you need to ground the hose, and I have stopped using vacuum until I sort this out.

How do you guys ground such a dust collection setup? I know the larger shop dust extraction systems got hoses with ground wires running through it, but I am not sure how to sort this out using a conventional vacuum.

Hope someone got some tips :)
