Hi all - my axminster table saw requires a high air flow of 750/m3/hr and so I have been looking at the Charnwood W696 and the Axminster AWEDE2 extractors - as both can be altered to have the fine dust cartridge, which I may buy when funds allow! However grateful if anyone has experience of these machines and if , for example the build is better with one or the other. many thanks!

Many thanks for the link - clearly a very fine machine,but I think I will stick to a bought unit, possibly a 2HP such as charnwood W691, or is a flow rate of 2000m3/hr overkill or is perhaps the old record cx2600 with 1150m3/hr suitable? So many choices!!

Thanks again

Both extractors you mention Julian are more suited to shavings collection, if you are going to use one on your table saw you definitely want the fine filter as with the fabric bag filter all you will do is spread the fine dust further round your workshop as they only filter down to about 5 microns.

I've had an Axminster extractor with fine filter for around 12 years & have been very happy with it

Hi Doug,

Many thanks for the advise, there are a few axminster extractors with the fine filter on ebay and so I hope to be dust free by the end of the week! I will keep you posted as to the final choice and what I think of the new purchase once its up and running!

Thanks again

I would use Makita VC4710 or similar shop vac.

Many thanks for the advice!

I finally found a suitable machine on ebay, and now have an axminster FM300BcC with a fine filter - all seems to work great so far, but hope to set up a ducting system to get round the rest of the workshop.

Thanks again - I have found advice on these forums a great help.
