We’ve mentioned pint-sized dust collectors on Toolmonger before, but here’s an even tinier one. The Razaire Dust Management System measures a minute 11″ x 11″ x 6″ and weighs only 7-1/4 lbs — your first laptop computer was probably bigger than this. Razertip Industries even built in a carrying handle. They obviously meant for this dust collector to be portable.
What this little guy lacks in size, it makes up for in flow. With its variable speed fan it can achieve a flow rate up to 530 CFM in free air, and it does so quietly. While that’s impressive, its performance under load really tells the tale. The impeller will move air all the way up to 1-1/2″ static pressure. The best description of the Razaire 530’s power comes from this blurb at Chipping Away — “at high settings it can pull very fine dust particles right through the filter!”
The Razaire 530 comes standard with a 9-3/4″ x 10-1/2″ x 2″ pleated filter which rates 30% efficient for 1 micron particles. It also includes a built-in lamp holder to help put light where you need it. Razertip Industries also offers a few handy accessories for the Razaire 530, like a lap carving tray, a 4″ inlet hose adapter, a motor tool hanger, and an exhaust deflector.
Razertip Industries built this dust collector to last, and they stand behind their product with a one year unconditional warranty on the entire unit, five years on the impeller, and 10 years on all other parts of the power unit. Here’s the downside: the Razaire 530 comes with a whopping $400 price tag.
