Go for performance. Leave the dust behind.

You know dust is a problem. It can sap your efficiency, create defects and rework, and steal the life from your abrasive. Once it's in the air, it can settle on your work surfaces in your shop and even creep into your office and waiting room. The best way to stop dust? The right combination of tools and abrasives let you capture it at the source.
