I use a snowshovel around the lathe...   and a 2hp dust collector for the areas within about 20' of the main throw zone.  Am I doing something wrong?

Glenn Lucas occasionally shows short vids of him turning at his lathe and the shavings winding up in a small dumpster behind the lathe. Sort of an advanced skill version of the demonstrator who can hit anyone near the front of a demo with the shavings. Laugh 

I wound up with a shovel normally associated with mucking a stall. It was left behind by some guys pouring a concrete ramp. (they never came back for it)

That shovel is a lot more convenient than a snow shovel around the lathe.

I also got one of those gadgets that holds a large plastic yard bag open for picking up leaves. It makes the opening of the bags very convenient for the size of my shovel.

One of these days I hope to get 220V set up for my dust collector, but that has not happened yet. Rolleyes
