Splash Hoods & Dust Collectors
Use with Model 26A Red Wing Lathe or Hand Grinders

The ability to perform grinding and polishing operations in the office or lab provides a great service to your customers. Being able to modify the fit of a hearing aid on-the-spot has many advantages, but the biggest plus is the instant gratification received by your clients. They walk in with a problem, and walk out with satisfaction. But, this type of repair comes at a price - it can be messy.

Splash Hoods are designed to shroud the spindles of a grinding or polishing motor, such as the 26A Red Wing Lathe, trapping particles and debris and keeping your work space clean. They can also be used with hand grinders and polishers. Splash Hoods can include optional lighting for better view of your work, and a flange for connecting to a dust collector. And to keep small particulates and dust from becoming a workplace or office hazard, Dust Collectors are a must. These units are designed to filter fine polishing dusts and grindings, keeping it out of your work area, office and coffee! If you want to keep control of your work environment, installing a splash hood with dust collection system is a step in the right direction.
