Ive used a fender washer as well. Just nip the edges with snips and it works pretty well.

Nothing special. Just what we use to catch dust. Now every truck is stocked with a hepa filter because of this whole silica thing, but this works well too.

We now have to wear dust masks with cartridges in our province to protect against silicosis. Anyone caught without wearing one when drilling anchor shots for example will get fined. I've been wearing masks since I can't remember.

When I went to work in the other province I was the only person to wear one and they looked at me like I was an extra terrestrial. They never saw masks with cartridges let alone know what the silicosis disease is.

New osha laws have taken effect. From what I understand, you have 2 options. Hepa filters, or a respitory program. More cost effective to go the hepa route.

The problem with hepa filerters is the employers don't want to buy new drills that accepts filters. When they do buy the filters they clog up fast, the guys don't take care of them. The employers don't buy more filters or the brush collector when they wear out and after a week you're breathing all that crap again.

The last decade as an employee I supplied my own safety equipment from masks, gloves, safety glasses, face shield, harness, ear plugs etc. The employers were supposed to supply that by law but they were D---cks. I was not going to lose my health for those clowns.

The most ingenious tool I've ever made was a spanner to go across the top of a curb stop. too much wasted time trying to get a seized nut out of the top. Just to add to the box of precision bent wrenches, drilled out nut drivers and socket extensions.

I wanted the original tool but since I'm up north the price tag was over 200$ including all kinds of rip off fees. Yes thats right that much. So I made my own. 1/8 flat stock with a welded Sawsall blade and shrink tube. 2 years later that tool is still 3 times as much as down south.
