Installation and usage instructions
Using a 1-3/8″ (35mm) hole saw, cut a hole in the top of the shield at a point where the hole saw pilot bit is exactly 1-1/4″ (32mm) from outer edge of the shield. The adapter’s hole location needs to be close to the inner edge of the shield while leaving room for the Vacuum Adapter’s flange to sit flat. Vacuum suction will be best at the edge of the shield and this location helps to keep the vacuum hose out of the way while cutting holes using the shield.
It helps to first make a puncture in the ceiling or wall inside the area to be cut allowing air to enter the shield while cutting, or tilt the shield to let air in to aid the vacuum to easily suck out all the dust.
Due to design of the tri-slot shields the shavings that collect in the slots when cutting overhead may not be sucked out by the vacuum. The solution is to apply clear packaging tape over the shield slots. The tape is easily removed to return to using the shield without a vacuum
