  1. Don't want ash dust in the house created from a vacuum??? Get the PowerSmith ash vac. Case closed.

    I got that but the damn bag keeps coming off the inlet. The hepa filter catches the dust, but the bag is supposed to be there so the hepa filter doesn't get much ash.

    You are right, ash vac is the only way to go. The Mrs. complained about the ash dust everywhere after I vacuumed with a small shop vac; hasn't said a word since I bought the ash vac a couple of years ago. Oh, not to mention that I vacuumed up a hot ash and set the shop vac bag on fire.

    I bought a filter for my Craftsman shop vac that is made to be cleaned with water. I got it at Home Depot. It's been a few years, so I can't tell you the brand. I never get dust or ash coming out of the vacuum's outlet.
