Vacuum to clean up over spray?

You are telling me what I wanted to hear, thanks guys. Should make keeping the shop clean a lot easier. Just didn't want a small explosion to singe the beard :)

When the filter is clogged you just pull off your disposable prefilter and toss it. The expensive pleated filter stays clean. Cheap, quick, easy.

I have a Ruwac Little Red. Does an incredible job, I even vacuum my filters with it, but they're expensive. It will hold about 20 pounds of powder in the tray before I have to empty it.

Is anyone using an air vacuum? I took my coating class this week put on by tiger and gema (write up to come later) and they were adamant against using shop vacs, it was a very big deal. They said they have seen several instances where the right elements came together and the shop vac exploded, in one instance it was so powerful it lifted the roof off. Anyways its enough for me to start looking into another avenue. I was thinking about building one but if someone knows of an air vacuum thats fairly cheap i'd rather go that route. If you dont know what I mean by air vacuum, Im talking about a vacuum that works just like the pickup tubes on the powder machines, suction is created by blowing air across an orifice.
