I like the modded vac. I tried to buy one and do the same thing. Unavailable at the time and still might be.

That and maybe a crevice tool for under the rails looks like all you really need. Unless you're really allergic/bothered by dust i don't think you really need a hepa filter'd vac.

Once the lungs go they are not repairable. There is a difference between a dust collector/extractor and ShopVac/vacuum cleaner.
Don't take my word...do some research. I used a ShopVac for dust collection for a long stretch of time. I still cannot breath properly.

Do what you gotta do. I'm no vacuum tech. but i seriously doubt the small amount of dust that would escape a non-HEPA equipped vac is going to hurt you, UNLESS you were allergic to certain particles.

Back in the 70s I played in a straight pool league at Thunderbowl in Allen Park MI. One of the guys was a Kirby salesman who eventually talked me into buying one at a favorable price discount. Never looked back, have since owned a couple more recent models and always have vac'd my table using a Kirby - no issues.

Yeah I agree, I doubt the small amounts of chalk dust generated during vacuuming would be harmful.

Our lungs are more than capable of handling small-to-moderate amounts of dust. Its constant exposure that gets you into trouble. The amount you're gonna deal with cleaning a pool table is tiny.

Sir, i used to work in a high-dust shop. We had a top-notch HEPA-equipped removal system. I know what you're talking about. Vacuuming a pool table from time-to-time is not anywhere near the same thing. All i'm saying.

I have tried many different kinds. These old dust devils are the best I found. They're cheap too. They have a rotating bar but you can take it out by removing a single screw.



Don't believe everything you think.

Was just suggesting. That's all. Not looking to argue anything.
I just bought a Festool Midi for dust (wood shop). I use it on my table. I have no excuse for bad rolls

Totally agree about the crevice tool.
Iíve been in rooms where the tables were reasonably clean..
...but they had a science project under the rails.

Just curious if you all only vacuum your table?

Does anyone use a brush alone?

I was playing last week on a table w new cloth and one of the guys said the cloth will pill if it's brushed against the grain.

Any insight on that?


The rail is your best friend.
