Grinder Dust Collection

These are some jars that were originally used to hold some honey. I cut a cross in the lid of the each jar and made a simple aluminium piece for each jam jar, which was riveted in place.

The jars sit loosely on the bench behind my main bench grinder and are pushed up against the exhaust port on the grinder's guard. This catches the bulk of the grinding dust that goes out the back of the grinder and stops it covering the bench. There's still quite a lot of grinding dust that ends up under the front of the grinder, but that's relatively easy to vacuum up.
